I have quiet a few things nearby me in the flat, so I just picked one which is this mask that I have right nearby or next to me. Taken with the X100V, not sure which one so two of it one in colour and the other in mono.
Just seen I need to update my copyright year.

I think the B&W one for me Dave, the Contrast is stronger.
I may be the placement of the eyes, but it feels slightly off vertical to me.
Good to see your Fuji back out again :)

Thanks Tim, it's nice to use the Fuji again.

Hi canon, sony, fuji Dave whatever. :ROFLMAO: ... good to see you.

Think I prefer B&W as the BG looks more mysterious

Love the black and white!

Thank you Roxanne.

Just been having a look at your website, love the This guy was killing it shot. Taken at The Brighton Music Hall, used to go there every day to take a lot of their photos and James was great.

Black and white has more punch to me. The eyes get a bit lost in the patterns on the colour version. For me, it could do with a lift of the highlights to give it a bit more punch. Unless you're going for moody and mysterious that is...

Prefer the mono by far but it seems just a little flat, like it was printed on Grade 2 paper instead of Grade 4 (going back in time now). Perhaps another go but with increased contrast?

Colour for me I think Dave - possibly could do with a bit more exposure, but I think that would also need doing the black point to keep them as they are, which may then result in a very contrasty image. Not sure - I think is have to see it before I could decide - is already s very strong image!

Nice shots Dave. I prefer the mono version (now there's a surprise) as the contrast makes the eyes seems more pronounced.

Wow, really like these! Such detail, I think the B&W is my favourite

Hi Dave, I’m another fan of the B&W it definitely adds an eye catching edge to the shot.
I like both versions Dave. The black background works nicely - it could be a exhibit in a museum.

Good to see you're using all your cameras so none get jealous :)
The B&W definitely wins in my eyes, was there any lighting used for the images?
A nice start to the 52 Dave. Prefer the colour one myself.


Thank you folks.

Stuck the A73 on a tripod set the timer to 10 secs, then manual focus the Voigtlander 50mm and click.

8 seconds... Must've been quite dark where you were taking that. You've certainly avoided any nasty shadows.
I would be tempted to have a play with white balance and the white and mid points, as the white of the lettering feels a little grey to me.
Cool out of the box thinking for the theme :)

It's a bit different, I like that you've taken one out and placed it in front.

Nicely done Dave. It might benefit from a little more exposure and saturation boost in processing.
