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

Mono version for me Jo, it draws greater attention to that fantastic soulful gaze in your daughters eyes. Really enjoyed browsing your pf btw.

9 Mar 2008 8:50PM're really maturing as a photographer jo, as well as an artist, this is so well taken and processed, truly excellent work and a lovely keepsake image of your daughter

must be printed out big and hung on your wall

congrats on your HC!

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...

Absolutely beaultiful work Jo. The colours are suberb and understated. I like the mono a great deal but the colours and the comp are a top drawer partnership.
