In the small village of Sharafkent, near Shymkent, Kazakhstan, the village grandmothers have organized together to make knit items and other handicrafts, and to do traditional feasts. They all wear matching traditional clothing. The tops are made of a very shiny satin that has a lot of highlights when photographed so I tried to see what would happen if I switched to black and white. The black and white version is here: https://www.allenfotowild.com/DailyPhoto/Daily-Photo-2014/i-gbZBVnW/A. Which do you prefer?
