Very beautiful chris, very powerful and at the same time fragile!!!
Intense, timeless and emotive! Love it, Chris. v
This is perfect!
I feel I can learn a lot from your portrait photography- wonderful portraits..
One word: SUPERB!
So much time in her face and hand. So much character and respect in the portrait. V
Wow,strong portrait !
Good idea to do it in B&W.
Superb portrait. Voted.
Unbelievable shot! GMV
You certainly nailed this shot, Chris. well done. vote.
Outstanding candid. GMV
This is excellent, Chris! I prefer the b/w, but both are superb! V.
This image transcends any need for colour. It's power comes from the absolute black framing the face, and the role of that soft veil as a counter to her harsh life, etched on her face. Colour would distract...but then I would say that ;-))K
perfect..Chris, your work is amazing..I love this portrait..v
Yes, B&W, definitely. Vote.
magnificent portrait !
a lovely addition to your lovely portraits gallery. well done, chris.
beautiful - something to touch in this one...
I prefer in b&w, we can see more the details, and it is more emotionnal! Perfect portrait, Chris!
Ana Carloto O'Shea
In b&w the story is different.. The lines on her face stand out much more and they certainly give a stroger dimension to the photo. Well done like always Chris.
Great shot Chris - voted
Both are excellent, Chris, but this one seems to carry more weight to me.
Hi Chris , Magnificent Photo !!! My Compliments ...
Maybe I prefer the b&w version.. :)
Angel Gonzalez Molero
Perfect skin textures and composition, great portrait
I think I prefer this version.
A gorgeous portrait Chris! Your b/w is fantastic. This woman shows so much life in her face and you've captured it beautifully. V!
Wonderful portrait Chris. I like the BW conversion
I love this in black and white as well! Another vote!
Outstanding portrait.. grey hair, skin form, features, veil, wrinkled hand..EVERYTHING about this photograph is just superb.
Big vote my friend:)
Excellent on B/W, a wonderful, intense portrait! ( V ) Anna
As superb as the colour version ~vote
Superb portrait. v
ah! you got her !
Superb image, Chris. So good in B&W.
A timeless face -- and portrait -- Chris. This image could have just as well been made 50 or 75 years ago. Your black and white version is more abstract, more symbolic, and less real than the color version. It is not, however, any better or worse. There are no rights and wrongs here. It depends upon your intention. If this is essentially a travel oriented image, shot for a brochure or article, the color version would be more appropriate. For an image in an art gallery, the black and white version would be the choice as far as I'm concerned. In any medium, however, this image expresses human values such as wisdom, thought, and frailty.
Perfect! Color version is excellent as well!
Bravo, photographer, one of your best.
