OK, I expect people to disagree, but I always feel that if you didn't decide it would be mono when you pressed the shutter then it should be colour.

It is very much a personal opinion and I think it goes back to having two film cameras (one with mono film and one with colour slides) that you always decided which one to use because of the subject.

And if I'd have been thinking in mono, there is a much better shot - the silhouette on the bottom right-hand side.

Keep it in colour.

I remember reading somewhere years ago that to 'think in mono' while shooting involved squinting through your eyes at the scene. ??

I almost always prefer mono shots but, for some reason, I really think colour works best here and is certainly not a distraction.

Lots to think about here guys - thank you! I think the mono is my fav but I want to keep the highlights as it adds an ethereal quality to the image. There was a skylight in the market above their heads and it makes the shot... Im struggling with the cropping though I think maybe for the first time i have a shot I dont have to crop at all.
