Strikingly beautiful, but not as incongruous as the black and white version. The yellow turban and brown skin tones are so beautiful that almost trivialize the cigar. In black and white, the woman seems to age, the skin color and turban color vanish, and the emphasis shifts to the cigar. (In my own version of this shot athttp://www.pbase.com/image/40189595 I used color because the shadows and smoke neutralized the turban and skin tones.)
