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.

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
