    I think I know what the difference is, for me at least: on the B&W one, my eye seems to focus on the dancer’s eyes, but in the colour version, my eye is drawn to the fire movement (colour gives it more realism, and shows up the smoke, the make-up etc). Both very good, but in different ways – well done

  • thanks Themis – choice between mood or realism? – sorry I didn’t see this comment before
