The colour version gives more realism to the image....so it's No 1 version for me.........GrinGrinGrin The tones in No 1 are superb.

You're certainly not disappointing with your images from the wonderful Havana Simon! I have to award another GEA - there's no way I can't!! Smile This is so powerful! Btw - it has to be the colour version - it adds so much more.

Both are stunning studies. I prefer V1 because the muted colours suit the subject so well.

I didn't want to look in case it was too upsetting.
Compelling image.
Prefer colour - it conveys the rich and poor.

V1 for me, as the colour version makes it easier to spot the former opulence of the surroundings, which I think is important to the image. Also, the plastic bag is more of a feature in the B&W version and, to me, this detracts from the image. The processing in the mono is superb though and I love the etxture is shows in the steps.
