I had wanted a series of monochrome for my India portfolio for a reason: everything in India is COLOR! So I chose a series of images that were more grit than sheen, more dirt than gloss.
My new quest was to process this image again, but in a muted, desaturation of the original capture. Just enough color to break up the monotony but still keep the mood.
So here is the before and after:
Well, you be the judge. Sometimes ya just gotta do this stuff.
