Another street portrait from Cusco, Peru. I was in Cusco in 2007 and saw this lady asking for a couple of pence. She was happy to pose for a portrait for said pence and she appeared as one of my first uploads.

I was in Cusco last week and took some spare prints from the previous visit with me, including the one of this lady. I saw her again and she was again sat down with her hat in front of her. She was pretty surprised and pleased when I put one of the spare prints from last year in her hat and she was delighted to pose for a couple of updated 2008 portraits.

Colour version 2. Critique welcome.

A lovely portrait. I prefer the colour version which for me has a touch more life and more warmth.

The contrast and tones seem to be much better controlled in the mono version, which I love. She has great soulful eyes.

both excellent shots but v2 has the edge that bit of colour does bring as Dave said,a warmth to the shot.
