I have a preference for the B&W version but this delicate yellow is very soft ! nice image too.

@Anna Cherer: Thanks Anna - I much prefer the BW image.

Scrolled back to the B/W. makes for an interesting comparison. I didn't expect it but I too prefer the B/W which concentrates the eye on the light and shade more, though there is not a lot in it :)
