very fine image, there is a warmth in the color shot that is really appealing. 2 great versions though.

Both versions are superb. Difficult to choose between but I think the BW has the edge and shortlisted.

ooooh i like this! V1 has a great vibe to it, the lack of colour suits the pose and the expression, almost haunting in a way.

editorial recognition cannot be far off.
superb lighting and the back ground isn't bad either.

both versions are great and have difficulty choosing which one I would prefer.

surely an image worth waiting for. Smile
