old pic (1983) - street sweeper - I know that the pic is very grainy: I tried to de-noise it, without much success; so, I rather converted it in B&W

John Linton, James Wiley, Miordan, Rhisiart Hincks and 5 other people have particularly liked this photo

I think it probably is a better "description" in B/W, with the deep shadow .allowing the woman and her work to stand out alone.

Le noir et blanc est sans doute un bon choix. On se focalise plus sur le premier plan. Très bon document.

It is a wonderful photo with a nicely timed moment. The light on the woman is wonderful and the background stays as just that. The man walking out of the photo only adds to the feeling of the woman being of a lower caste. I do not think that the grain detracts one bit from this fine documentary shot.

And your B/W option has made it into a newspaper illustration. I like it.

Une des castes de intouchble;;;; B&W is the better choice to decrease the noise, and it gives also a better view of the picture, eye is attracted by the omen and not disturbed by bckground.
