Clean soul

I've spent so much time processing images into monochrome that I'm struggling to get the perfect colour shot. This shot had some rich hues in the background but I wasn't sure how it looked in relation to the foreground. As a result I've removed it and gone for the easier option.

Loving it! Hope it wasn't chewing gum?
I'm just looking through your collection for the first time, and I'm really impressed. Great sensitivity to light, interesting compositions, effecting toning. Inspiring work--thanks. I'll be coming back.
Bride, the Groom and Me.... This is brilliant Jide. Simply Brilliant.
