PESO:

I happened to take two almost identical photos - one with the SL and one
with the Monochrome:

What do you think?

About what?

I think it's pretty nice that your Monochrome has apparently had a miraculous 
recovery.

I think color is the better medium for the subject.

I think the Monochrome has a different, "hotter" curve, that nicely lifts the mid tones, than the SL, but that could be a result of conversion and/or editing.

I think monochrome is a good choice for the moody shots of Noch.

I think "In the Temple Window" should be very slightly rotation and perspective corrected, cropped on the left to 10x8 proportions, printed at 20x16 and hanging on a gallery wall.

I think color is the better choice for most of these subjects.

I think "Ambaoux, Kacha Woman, II" is wildly over processed, "Papaya Lady in B&W" isn't bad, but both people look better in color.

I think "Bath Time" works in monochrome, but would prefer it either cropped 
and/or with the foreground shore darkened.

I love the back support in "Backstrap Loom". I don't understand the color in 
"Weaving and Visiting with Family"
