    I agree that the "By Izzy" pic is incredibly strong! I actually prefer it over both of the winners.

    I remember your pic from here, but wasn't it in color? Or am I mis-remembering?

    You're right - I posted it here before in colour. I did the black and white version for the competition, after tinkering enough that I preferred it to the colour original (apart from the loss of the blue eyes).

    The blue eyes are stunning in the color version! The B&W has wonderful emotion and sweetness to it. That single tear just breaks my heart!
