Another good caught scene of the daily life in China. I believe that elñ B& W is a good election for these photos!
Aussie: Thank you Jose Angel

More previous century reporting? This is another good capture of a street scene that has completely disappeared from western cities.
Aussie: By the time I came back the ladies had gone and no doubt they had sold all their wares. This was next door to a high rise building site and there were 7 concrete trucks lined up waiting to drop of their loads.

This could have been taken 100 years ago, Aussie, I'm sure!!
Aussie: A lot of the places we were had areas that I'm sure had not changed in years.
Beautiful timeless shot Aussie. I like the soft tones here!
Aussie: Thank you Richard, I used one of the glow filters but don't remember which one.

Love the simplicity of this - the composition is good and they look completely immersed in their task. Great in b/w.
Aussie: The wall was a pale pink which looked really odd in colour.
Great travelogue stuff Aussie
Aussie: Thanks Chris, there is quite a bit of twiddling to this image. Conversion, filter clone etc.

A fine scene for a well composed B&W
Like the B&W processing, it brings out the mood and atmosphere in this shot. Fantastic image!

Simply fantastic, Aissie. The combination of 'a snapshot of daily life' and B&W works a treat.

A timeless quality. Superb

i particularly like your use of the slow shutter speed giving just the hint of motion to the scene, great one Aussiesmile

This is a great candid, I love the way you did do these in B&W, great tones, love the series.
Better in B&W Aussie than one would see in colour on a documentary. I've never thought I would ever buy anything from one of these food outlets, my tummy is too precious.
Another goodun Aussie. The building in the background is a depressing affair!

Great picture and composition. People going about their business.

I find the soft look interesting, but it being a yesteryear kind of picture - I would also like to see it converted to b&w infrared with some grain.

I love the processing here. Your choice to produce this in a black and white photograph works perfectly. Wonderful shot of street life.
