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

I marginally prefer the colour version, super shot.

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

I could not choose between the two versions....
V2 he looks like he is trapped in cell. The Count of Monte Cristo comes to mind

Brilliant image and very photogenic

Superb Jo .

Excellent shot. Like v1 best, but like the intense colour of his eyes in v2. Tracey

what a corker Jo, love the light in this shot, superb processing got to be V1 for me, v2 has some strange "blooming" that detracts from the shot. Noiiiiiiiiccce.

The colour one has, but only by a whisker as the colour is nice and subtle Smile

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.
20 Jun 2008 11:14PM
Nice pic and V1 does it for me, feels very emotive, nice compostion and background texture works so well, nice one!!

Fab shot Jo, love the bw version

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

mono suits it best, love the textures of the wall behind, and the light reflecting on the small hairs looks fab

Very handsome. Will we be seeing any fine art male nudes?

both go well, but V2 has more warmth or emotion (if thats the wording).
