If you compare this to the b&w version you will notice I have removed the distracting elements from the bottom of the image to give it a "cleaner" look. #1470099

You certainly did.

Both pictures are fantastic

Looks awesome in color, too, but I still like the moodiness of the B&W best! This color portrait is a change for you! #10192388

Welcome back to the Crèma WENDY!

My warmest Aussie winter thanks for your delightful feedback.

It seems I only include a colour version if I can't decide between it and the b&w. I do aim for b&w's with my candids but lately the original colour versions just seem to have been as good or better so you get the best of both worlds. 8-)
