A nice portrait with added flare for good effect.
Not bad Taff.

I like it. I think the flare works better in the B&W. She's a cutie and very brave to wear that hat

I actually like the color one a bit more--B&W is a bit too dark on her face. Lovely shot either way!

Taff, the colour shot is lovely, I really like that. For the B&W one to work, you need to work on the skintones more to try to get more contrast or variance. Her eyes may need some very slight 'dodging' too.
Her skintones 'sing' in the colour shot, but not in the B&W.

Great shot Taff and conversion. I like the color for the colors and her face and hair is lighter. But the black and white I like because the flare is a little more noticeable.
