Some yellow filter would bring an ill tone !! to support the artistic passion, IMO ; )

Besides, I think, 'Squaring' the frame by cropping off from the top would both concentrate the attention andemphasize the vertical dynamics in the picture!

Hope you don't mind my sketch to illustrate my words somewhat:

Bahadir,

Your version looks really good, thanks. This was my first time working with digital B&W, I could use more practice.

Glad you enjoyed it : ) You knowa lot better could be done with the clean original copy! Anyway, I'd be glad to watchfurther worksfrom someone who were used to dealing withB&Wusingmore tangible toolsof the analog days

here's an interesting effect you might wanna try...
you get the best of both worlds - BW for the guy having a bad day, without taking away the vibrant colours and impact of the artwork

Great Pic. I really like Destiny's twist on the photo with the spot color on the art. (That's where I was thinking, then scrolled down to see she thought it first.) Tell your daughter to keep seeing the world through those curious eyes.

I also really like Destinys twist on the pic. The paintings have to be in color for sure. But my main thought is what is the guy thinking for him to have his hands over his head like that while reading the paper. Is it the stock prices or the obits column? Its a really interestng shot. Cudos to your daughter.

Thanks to all that commented on the picture, it has been a big help to my daughter. Your comments have given her lots of new ideas on how to be even more creative.

Thanks,

Craig and Ashleigh
