Laugh, anytime anywhere

These delightful girls chuckled as they saw me starting to shoot them from across the way, just outside the Sihanoukville market. I share this photo also to ask for your opinions as to which version is preferred. I have an idea for myself but wanted to gain general consensus. Thanks for viewing.





More photos from Cambodia coming up soon in a separate thread...

This shot is awesome! I think the last B&W version is great.

5 stars from me!

The new B&W is now great also. I still like the color image better though. The vibrancy makes it for the shot.

Great job and great variation on the two!

Ash, first let me tell you what a wonderful image this is. I like the second b/w conversion better than the first but the color still beats it.

Fantastic guys.
Thanks for your input.
I may have found a new PP routine as a result of this exercise.
And that's what this forum's all about.
Thank you.

I have great passion for the BW, but this time I prefer the color, better explains the situation and the environment.
Congratulations.

Ash,
I think the color version is marvelous and reflect the vibrancy of the subjects themselves. One can bet that each girl had some comment input into the colors, so in a way, the colors reflect their personality. the monochrome versons are also very fine, but for this subject....

congratulations on your artistry!!!

Thanks to you all.
I agree, each version brings out something different to the viewer and can be appreciated in varied ways. Your input has been valuable.
Cheers.
