A fine shot, Chris. But it's graphically vary strong and I think the "streetness" of the picture comes out even more strongly in B&W. I did a conversion, but I'm reluctant to post it unless you want to see it.

I did one as well and am at that undecided stage but likely will go that route for a print version. Post yours as I would like to see how much we are alike or different in our processing.

The color's lovely but I think the power is in the graphics, which B&W shows more specifically.

I really can't find a B&W that works for me yet, but what do you think of this?

I did a SEP2 normal with a green filter and popped the bright's up a bit and decreased the contrast a bit, then changed the blend mode to luminosity. I didn't touch any of the colors any other way.

Hi Chris. I think the colors in this one are beautiful. But I also think the colors diminish the power of the picture as street photography.

I don't think he was looking at anything in particular, just enjoying a pleasant afternoon outside.
