The previous is super, but I like this even more. For me the mono wins, although the colours are beautiful too..should get a few awards this

for me this needs to be in colour as it gives the shot a lovely atmosphere and in black and white it makes the head dress look a little like a micky mouse hat, and I am a big B+W fan.
Love it

I like both versions of this one Jo, but like DaveU, it's the colour one I like best. Softer tones and lovely subtle lighting. All topped off with an HC, it doesn't get much better than that...
