The original colour image, taken within the Hindu 'Angkor Wat' (1110ad - 1160ad), was heavily stained, through over 850 years of weathering. Consequently, I converted it to b&w, by desaturating in APS.
The candid pose looks very familiar, all around the world, at various famous tourist sites. It looks like it could have been taken just yesterday.

Excellent catch. Looks very good in B&W with much details. Could be sharper though.

Good follow-up on your color posting some days ago, Chris. Very interesting to see this detail, and even at their very old age the two ladies still luke quite alluring. Good contrast in the b&w presentation, thanks for sharing.
