These are very good.
Makes me want a 35 Lux even more.

Very nice indeed. Work well both in b&w and colour. I take it you set a manual wb, or do you adjust in pp?

Difficult lighting for color photography... I like the first B&W photo best, as a nice environmental portrait. The second (B&W) and the third (color) photos have a contrasty light above / slightly behind the subject that casts a shadow across the face, giving a shiny look to the skin in the B&W photo and a strong color cast to the skin tone in the color photo. Combined with the perspective IMO they are a bit unflattering to the subject...

Joe
