    I love them both, John – there’s something about this in B&W that is even more dynamic, though. It could be the more obvious shine on the metal rail that leads the eye into the pic. Fabulous!!

  • Well I did enhance it a bit to make it look better.
    Thanks very much for your comments Colleen

    John, this is incredible !! Black and white gives so much more for the eye to see..like the texture of the side walk, you really can’t see the pebbled walk in the colored piece..this is FANTASTIC !!!! AGAIN ! ! !

  • Kat you are a very kind lady….However I did enhance the B&W version because I felt it looked a bit lacking.
