He looks kinda familiar. Yes, I think it works even better in B/W.
I agree that it works better in bw. Plus, I got his orb to GLOW more.
I love both!
Thanks. I was reworking the color one and running into trouble, so I thought, "why not try it in black and white?"
Wow! Wonder why it is called "black and white," as if there isn't a vast spectrum from black to white (-: That's why this photo works so powerfully. Black and white. What a concept! Some art work is purely black and white. Photography rarely.
I really love this image Tara.
