Cheers, geoff

I completely understand your objection. Fiesta is a visual feast for color photographers. I also understand that black and white photography is an acquired taste that is not universally appreciated.

There is such a thing as too much color which is distracting to the eye. The first 2 images fall into that category. They are extremely detailed and busy images. Color did not work well in those images.

The rest of the images did work in color and perhaps I should have left them as originally captured. In particular the last one includes a bright red neon sign that is very striking in color.

I like exploring some of the edges of photography. In enjoy black and white and also unsharp blurred images interest me. Thanks for looking at my images but please don't substitute my aesthetics for your own.
