Some photos just look better in black & white. And some places.
India is not one of them. When I think of India I always think of the colour.
But this photo should have worked but didn’t and I couldn’t figure out why until I turned it into a black and white shot.
That’s when I found that the red silk piled in the corner distracted the eye from the man and the wonderful light surrounding him.
Having done that I couldn’t resist converting a few other photos from India to black and white.More of Nancy Merrill’s a Photo a Week: Black & White.
