Liberte - Gay Pride

The Gay Pride movement had its annual parade last Saturday week and I went in to take some shots. It poured and poured rain. I found a spot in a doorway and attached the trusty old 50-200 lens and got some shots in. I particularly like this one. It reminds me of a painting by a French guy, I think Delacroix, which I think was entitled "Liberte" and which depicted the French revolution and its victory for the people on the day. It sort of says to me 'like it or not, we're here and we shall overcome'. I really admired them for their dedication to fight for their rights and especially it was such an awful day weather wise but their good humour and dedication brought out the sun of hope. I'm posting two versions - colour and b/w. I wonder which one you like/prefer - if either?!
