    I think this is really interesting.
    I think what works against the version as presented is that the brightness and color of the brick wall and the brightness of the window frame pull attention away from the figure.
    By converting this to B&W then the viewer is less distracted by the color and more easily struck by the contrast between the nature of the figure and the real life structure behind it.
    The tilt, imo, really adds to the odd conjunction of the reclining unreal statue and the very ordinary life window behind it.

    Nicely seen.
