...but a damn HARD CLEAN-UP .. FULL view shows better some subtle touches of color (petals) in the Gene Kelly's W&B . Member reactions:
I have to agree with All of the Above it is a nice clean up and done very well
Way to go Amo. Not a lot of the B&W works win and I, for one, am glad to see it. Enjoy the win.
Thx all . I am really sorry for not being able to thank individually as usual.Thank you so much . Believe me, it was a lot of serious work .Avoid repetitions was also an important part of the work. So, rain -because the provided image was already a 'wet' one-, but not a dark final picture that would too easily (unfairly) hidden some clean-up's defaults.Finally, B&W brought more work on the lighting.
Stunning work. Hats of for Cleaning up job the source from the figures.Congrats on the well deserved win.
Excellent work, a well deserved win - congrats. And thank you for disproving my theory that a bw picture can't win a FN contest... it can.
