This very good portrait would excell even more in black and white. Think how nice Christopher Azzropardi's (sp?) black & white work portraits come across. There's just something about the working human being that comes across well in monochrome.--Chris

P.S. this is, of course, merely one man's opinion, and the one man has been known to be wrong a time or two in his life. Smile

Two men's opinions, in this case. As soon as I saw this one--and before seeing Chris's comment--I thought that I'd love to see this one in B&W. -Brian

From the mouse among men- I think it is fine in colour. Great control of light and fantastic sharpness. In can not have been easy with that camera setting. john

chappo's right, as usual. The source of light here is secondary to the focus of the picture because of the colour. Remove the colour and the focus becomes the light. This, in colour, is excellent. In BW it doesn't work. There is no point in comparing this with Christopher's work where the light source is concealed and his work, I'm sure, is conceived in BW.
