Well, I thought the B&W version was fantastic, but the desaturated colours here really gives it a little something extra IMO.

Ya know, I go around bare-foot on my old wooden floors too, and I'm constantly pulling bloody splinters out o' my toes....

slightly dark perhaps but I suspect what you intended, a good compositon.

Usually I always prefer B&W but I think this pic works just as well in colour.
Fantastic series of pictures.

The hint of colour helps this a lot, as does the extra little touch of light on the hair.

The best yet Jo. Really like those washed out colours.

Neither one nor the other.

One is B/W - the other colour and both have their own merits and stand up equally in their own world

thanks everyone for FB
i thought the mood was reflected differently in colour but probably just a personal thing BW v colour eh :-0)

Personally I like both versions Jo, but I have to say - with those desaturated colours, this one works better for me.

I think this is excellent and I don't want to compare the different versions. Being a little lighter and being able to see your face seems to change the mood of the whole picture.

Agree with the general consensus that this is a great image.

The difference between the b&w and this is mainly in the fact that your face is missing in the former. I prefer this desat one because there is a wistful expression visible.

Nice sp Jo. I've just realised that I've been looking at most of your images "in the dark", having just bumped up the brightness & contrast to max there is a load more detail visible. I'll have to drop it back down now, eyes getting burnt!

A very good portrait Jo. I think the dark adds to the mystique and drama of the shot. I like it.
