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.
20 Jun 2008 6:53PM
Both versions are superb. Difficult to choose between but I think the BW has the edge and shortlisted.

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.

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.

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

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