Like skeletons showing the scars and cause of their mortality.

Very interesting and cool image. Black and white works nicely for this.

Thanks Paul, I thought so too ... obviously.
Rule of thumb - If colour is not absolutely essential to the image
then it is probably best to express it in B&W. This from a guy
who is eager to see the colours of spring. Nonetheless, B&W
photos seems more dramatic, require the viewer to unpack the
tools of his/her imagination, and it lends itself to embellishment
with B&W filters. I tend to use a green filter frequently, and also sepia
even though it advertises my age. I grew up in B&W largely because
I could not afford to process colour film and develop colour prints in my darkroom.
Eventually I could assess a scene in B&W and when that was too difficult I carried
a red filter with me. Looking through the red filter helped see the
world in B&W, just like a film director carries an viewer prescribed
to the working film format (aspect ratio).
