I think the boldly coloured flowers distract from the subject, unless the flowers are the subject!

I like both but slightly favour the colour one as the flowers stand out better and are wasted in the black and white.

I prefer the colour one, 'cos the model's hair disappears into the foliage in B/W.

Thanks for the input guys. I'm really torn between the two so I'll probably let xxmrmthxx decide.
Having said that, as I have already toned down the colour of the flowers, because they were a bit too overpowering, I might just rework it in technicolour and truly put myself in a quandry.

Photoshop has a LUT for that. The 3 strip process will work a treat I reckon.
