Another in the series....couldn't decide between b&w and colour. It'll be interesting to hear people's thoughts. Critique welcomed...

B&W for me, although rather unhelpfully I can't tell you why. I'm a sucker for B&W though.

Colour, I think - the light is just superb.

Yeah, I think mono as well....always a sucker for window light and this is expertly exposed. Really quite lovely image, soft, sensual, sexy and quite lovely.....I like the colour version, but it sort of dates it a touch...not much and really not a criticism, but I like the tones and the contrast with the mono....beautiful image! Nice one Geraint!

HI Geraint
I'm really enjoying the use of light and shade, lovely sensual image.
If it were mine, I think i would try and get that window bar that's blown, back. I would also try and get the verticals straight.
I'm enjoying the lingerie, but for me the pearls are adding too much clutter.

Not that I know anything. But I think the colour outlines her shape a little more........Sandy

I like both, the colour has real delicacy, but I prefer the strength of the mono. Nicely done with both.

Black and white has a 'fine art' look to it and the skin tones and colour blend very well with the surroundings in the colour one - so they both have merits and I think it depends on what frame of mind the viewer is in as to which one is the 'better'.

The colour is extremely subtle Geraint, - so not a lot to chose between the two, so I would opt for the colour if pressed.

Lovely shot, pose, and well controlled exposure.

Im going to be a pain in the ass and say both, the light in the colour is just brilliant, and the BW has been very well executed. Nope keep looking at it and just cant decide!
