This is a full color photo with minimal post photo editing. I was drawn to this as the scene was black and white in spirit. It is my photo of a sculpture commemorating an actual 1897 photograph of the workers who built this lock on the Erie Canal in NY. I felt it captured the B/W spirit of the subject. I left the small items in yellow and green at the bottom of the shot to keep it as an authentic photo of our time.
I apologize if this "color" photo is not appropriate for this gallery.

For anyone interested, here is the original 1897 photograph. As you can see, the installation is not finished with more figures of workers in the works.

You made a very nice shot of this unique sculpture. I like your editing decision. The sculpture itself is such a lovely idea - I've never heard of anything done like this.

So happy you shared the original photo that the sculpture is celebrating, too. Really cool!
