Re: Set free

Like the B&W conversion and the choice to crop the bird in flight,out. I
think the half girl and boy is to distracting. Weldone at getting
rid of the cars in the background to.

On saying that. Love both shots.

I wonder if the second shot would look good with a bit of ageing to it. Only a thought

Re: Set free

Definately think it looks better as a cropped B&W . As Fiztastic suggests maybe a bit of "ageing" would look good and maybe darken the blown highlights? Like the final image, good work. Charles

Re: Set free

I think that this works on pretty much every level. The crop has great composition and the birds and the man are both crisper and have more contrast which makes them stand out from the background.

Well done

Re: Set free

Great conversion, suitably cropped and reworked Not too fussed about ageing as I think it works well as you have it. Worth the effort

Pinnacle, The first one is a bit "Messy" too many distractions, cars,children half cut off etc. But I think you have got it exactly right in the B&W crop. The man's expression the flying birds and no distractions in the BG. Well caught. Try upping the contrast very slightly.
Colin.

Re: Set free

Crikey I was not expecting so many replies but very greatful and thanks for the positive comments. The first shot I agree is busy and was a bit of a snapshot but I liked the pigeon movement and the old boy was a right character so I am pleased I got something out of it.

Personally not keen on the ageing thing but point taken, will try a tiny boost in contrast though and keep experimenting.

Thanks all

Re: Set free

Me neither, not keen on the ageing idea; maybe for antiques or something old fashioned, but this is a modern scene, so wouldn't see an ageing process as relevant at all.

First one doesn't work for me ~ too cluttered ~ but the B&W crop is spot on
