Like Claus, I show both a colour and a B&W version, for opinions.
I do have a title, but there may be room for improvement...

This shot was made with late afternoon light on the roof of a "Le Corbusier" apartment building in Marseille. That rooftop serves as a communal area/terrace for the inhabitants but is also open to other visitors of the building. A family was celebrating a birthday party.

ZD12-60 on E-5 (1/200 at F6.3):

Not wanting to steer any C&C, but here are two thoughts already on the table:

  • The colour version shows the sunset light-colour, but I feel that the shadows also reveal the time of day, and the faces are more clear in B&W.

  • I also showed this in "Street & Documentary" and there, a question was raised about the presence of the figure in the background.
