Very evocative, and retaining some deep blue in the sky is a real plus . Must be tempting to be out when the hordes are still asleep!

Does before dawn. Mean on the way back from the pub ? Lovely dramatic feel to this image.

Thanks both.

This is a lovely capture. I agree with Nigel about the sky - it really adds to the image.

Would depend for me on the story you’re looking to tell... the b&w in this instance feels starker, wetter, colder, lonelier to my eye... the colour warmer, friendlier, more inviting... both work vwell as photos...

I prefer the image in your first post, Kris. Both mono and colour of the second image look rather bright for me, and the colours look more natural in the first image compared with the second (although, of course, I wasn't there and never have been).

Prefer the mono version; very nice conversion.

I don't know if it is me, the forum, Ipernity or something else, but images posted here never seem quite a sharp as when I look at the originals in Lightroom. ~shrug~

Thanks for the kind comments all. K.
