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

I prefer in b&w, we can see more the details, and it is more emotionnal! Perfect portrait, Chris!
Best regards
Ana Carloto O'Shea30-Aug-2006 16:17
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.
Guest 30-Aug-2006 14:10

Besati30-Aug-2006 13:57

Superb image, Chris. So good in B&W.
Phil Douglis29-Aug-2006 19:27
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.
Galina Stepanova29-Aug-2006 19:26
Perfect! Color version is excellent as well!
Bravo, photographer, one of your best.
