The term poor little mite comes to mind.

Great conversion.

It's a lovely image Alan, I just wonder as always when someone posts a BW image whether it would be even better in colour?

hmmm - David - an interesting thought .

I normally go all out for colour but that's 2 I've now seen recently where I've really preferred B&W

In this case I would be concerned that colour in the overlarge jumper and scarf would actually detract from the facial expression - and to me it's the face that's the focus of this shot

That's a really striking image - cleverly conceived and executed.

However, for me the 'Boots' logo really distracts and I would have cloned it out - even though some would say that removing it would 'distort the reality of the scene'. (There's also something unusual right in the bottom right hand corner of the image which our local judges would spot in an instant!)

Thanks Phil

I like that the Boots sign, the cross, and the lamp "unbalance" the image. Creating a bit of tension. I can see where you are coming from though.

As to the bottom right hand corner - oops, I saw that after I posted. Needs cloned out

The amount of detail in the refection is amazing and the sky also seems to blend into the reflection wonderfully. I can not make my mind up if the lamp post is a distraction, rather than "Boots", or if it's mirroring of the clock face is an integral part of image. Either way it's a good picture,.

Its a "beauty". I like the framing on this, it works very well.

The colour saturation in the reflections stands out in total contrast to the rest of the image.

Good stuff Alan.

Best regards

This works for me, although I found my eyes wandering all over the place before settling on the reflected clock.

I like the contrast between the wonderfully vibrant colours that dominate and the drab, everyday street furniture at the bottom. To make it more of a Wennington signature shot, though, it probably needs a kingfisher on the lamp...
