    Hi Yegor,

    Maybe it is my upbringing, but I just don't 'get' the significance, or point, of highlighting the crack into almost a lightning bolt and smudge/flare.

    My feeling is the shot might work if the nun were much smaller in the frame - i.e. with a lot more plain wall and paving.

    Sorry, not sure that's much help,

    I agree regarding a size. But it 210mm unfortunately. Without crop. I do not know why I did not delete a photo. But original with a crack on the wall and wanted simply to replace it something

    Hi Yegor

    I can see what you were aiming for with the 'lighning bolt' effect and while I am not convinced you pulled that off I DO think
    it is a good simple mono image in itself.

    Hi Yegor. I too prefer the non-colored crack. I wonder if you could pull out any more detail in her black dress by slightly lightening it. You might also consider cropping off part of the right side, half way from the edge to her dress, so that the nun is not as centered. My two cents worth...
