Yeah, go with you on this one. I like mono for this kind of moody shot, but the colour works a little better for me with this crop....has a lovely softness and feel to it, like the look and well exposed. Lovely, lovely shot again and a cracking series.

HI Geraint
Good shot, I much prefer the higher contrast mono version.
There are only two things which spoil it for me. The pearls I'm finding distracting, they complicate a simple image. I'm visualizing this shot without them and in my mind it's much better. A case of less is more.
The other thing is that the crop on the left, looks a bit messy and unconsidered. That arm and hand coming into the picture from the left looks a bit clumsy and awkward. I don't like the look of the hand much either, in that position it looks bony and rather unfeminine, especially contrasted with the rest of the shot which is very sensuous.

Beautiful shot, the cropping on the left leaves it a bit off balance for me

Mono for me once again. Great model and lighting Geraint. I tend to agree with Martin on the pearl stakes though...
