I prefer this version in B&W, which seems to bring out more expression than in the original. It's a great photo anyway you look at. Best of luck in the challenge.

The thing that goes the farthest, towards making life worthwhile, it costs the least and does the most, is just a pleasant smile.

I like this one better, Tigz. Sparky is a lucky cat.

The colour version is of course better but for the B/W challenge this is a good entry.

Sandi, to me a comparison between the colored- and B&W-version is not as meaningful because each version pursues a specific objective.
I see that you've transformed the original version in an excellent manner into what it is now. Perfectly suited for the B & W challenge.

This works beautifully Sandi and I agree with Mr.C. they both have a different objective and this is excellent on its own merits.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

A good rework and b/w presentation of the photo Sandi. A nice texture in the image and a bit of a line drawing effect.
