Not sure actually. The red in the color picture is bugging me, but the colors in her hair and tights are nice.

The red is a little distracting, but I think the colour version is still more interesting. The purple and green is just too good to lose

I like the colour version - it also has better shadow detail.

I already mentioned this in another thread but I feel like it belongs better here since this is the critique thread. Is the EXIF wrong or are you really at 1/40 sec at f10.0 at 167mm? You are very lucky you got this shot if those were the settings. Especially where she's moving around. You must have been on a tripod? This shot should likely have been at f4.0 and 1/250 or 1/500. This would get you more background blur to minimize the distractions and provide you with better freezing capability though it doesn't seem like you needed that???
