I agree it is darker, and Hamlet-esk but I would say I prefer the coloured version.
Get well soon.

I prefer the colour - it's so limited and it really works for me.

He looks more princely in colour. More bad boy in b/w.

Bland by comparison Nick.

The moment you start converting to mono you force a graphical enquiry , the relationship of structure over tonality perhaps.

The colour version had a much "easier on the eye" appeal , a nice subtle palette that worked well.

Anyway , both versions bash the flash and draw the eye a little to much to the ornate chair rather than the stare...

erm

That chair was a pig Dave, it had a gloss coating that reflected everything. I even took an image with no flash just ambient light to layer in later,but that was just as bad just from the background lighting. Oh well got more sessions planned for later in the year - several other ideas. Must say this is one of those where the print looks so much better (btw I uploaded wrong version, numpty there's a minor flaw in this).

I've just been looking at a tutorial for something completely different that may help a little in toning them down

Lights are new to me Dave, so I'm still on a learning curve. I played safe and just used softboxes (gridded) may have been better with a beauty dish.
