The Faces

DSC_0695

This is a first for me, a monochrome stained glass window.  The reason you are seeing black & white, is because the colour version was bad, really bad, bad enough to go in the trash bin.  But, it was the faces that stopped me, each face has its own character so beautifully defined in the glass.  Lets see what it would look like in black & white…..saved from the bin, to me it looks beautiful, who needs colour, the faces say it all 🙂

  1. I have to say that at first I was surprised to see a monochrome stained-glass window, until i read your explanation. Then I looked closely at the faces, and you’re right – they are very expressive. And I’ve saved quite a few images from the bin by converting them to black and white. Well done.

  2. Not only appealing and individual — I also love the way you’ve brought out the inherent composition, but not in a way that suggests it’s been done in a mechanical fashion. The positioning of the faces and the contrasting hand gestures — one supplicating, the other accepting — add enormously to the aesthetics of this image.

    1. Thank you for the lovely comment and you have actually made me see the picture in another light, so to speak, I was really only seeing the faces and now…. I have noticed the hands and the way the figures are holding them, just as important as the faces 🙂
