In black and white
*Am trying out some new edits here...*

*I shot these more than two years back, and posted them with different edits before*

*Previously I did these in colour and in sepia, somehow I preferred sepia instead of black and white before... I can't remember why now...*

*For those who aren't familiar, these are close-ups of the mask of the 'Barong' ~ a lion-like mythological figure in Balinese culture.  I was fascinated and went for a few tight close-ups...*

*The third shot is a scene from the dance drama which shows the 'Barong' making its entrance with another character, just to show what the whole figure looks like!*

<center>*A straight-on front shot
Black and white is always stark and can be a little much for some people*</center><br>

<center>*An off-centre, slightly to one side shot, zooming out a little from the first... so you can see more of the full head mask
Here it looks a little friendly even, doesn't it...
Anyway, the 'Barong' is the good guy 
in the usual story of good triumphing over evil*</center><br>

<center>*As mentioned earlier, this is a scene from the dance drama
If I remember correctly, the front character is the evil witch queen...
I may be wrong though, oops!
I was just excited about all the costumes and getting the shots, so I might have gotten a couple of the figures mixed up...*</center>

<center>*The 'Barong' costume is worn by two persons...
One forming the front with the head mask
the other performer does the back and back legs!
I had a brighter edit before, and this I made it a little more sinister... 
darker shades and shadows, overall much darker...
The only light source coming from side windows
Not sure if it works though*</center><br>

Black and White works great for these images. The Barong looks like he's smiling, even in the second shot with the mouth closed. I'm not sure he could look sinister :-)
