Re: The Sweep (Colour & B&W)

It's a nice shot with a mellow and reflective mood. The colour version works well, the colour palate is very harmonious. I think there is a good B&W in there as well, but somehow this conversion doesn't work as well for me as the original. Maybe it is a bit too dramatic or gritty.

Good shot anyway.

Ciao ... John

OOOh! very nice Paul ! I like the colour one, he has a "cheeky look with a hint of a wink" in his right (facing) eye. My Nick likes the B&W !
