Re: Holiday snaps including one for YYR

Three shots from me this week. First from North Wales, an extra splash of colour to a snap that I showed a few weeks back. Then a b&w conversion as suggested by YYR. Finally one from the Llangollen Music Festival in North Wales.

Thanks for looking as always.

EM5 and Panaleica 25mm

Silver FX Conversion

Gee - that B&W works well doesn't it

I also agree with joenap2 that I would be tempted to bring out the chap lurking in the shadow. He's a nice part of the story.

So here's a version for you recreated in LR from your colour original.

I've lifted the shadows a little and the man on the left is lightened. The image overall has less contrast than your B&W version. I suggested a slight crop as one option (4:5 format) I'm not convinced that I like mine any better but see what you think.
