many wonderful images Tina... and the beauty of the resplendent colors  
goes without saying...and I love the faces...

but that said, I prefer the bw, and I'd like to see some faces close  
up in bw...

it seems the color after a while becomes an end in itself, dulls the  
senses, like too much chocolate...makes one desire a long drink of  

one piece of chocolate is perfect, two is too much...

sort of like the old one...first prize is a week in Philadelphia,  
second prize is two weeks in Philadelphia...

it's sort of a paradox, I know the color sells better, but you can  
only say ..."look at the beautiful colors" in so many ways, then it  
becomes redundant...

color has replaced content...

I tried to find the best way of saying this that would be clear,  
helpful, not offensive...
