I favor the skin tonality in the B&W but wish it had more detail in your eye and hair... that's just me though.

Photography started out black and white. Black and white done well has a lot of power over color. This black and white image could overpower the color image if the eyes were touched up a bit. I would vote for the black and white if the eyes were touched up.
Great images both.

The picture is about skin.

The B&W loses a lot of information. Note the tones in the hair. In the B&W, they are lost. A better conversion to B&W might help, but I'd still say color based on the subject matter...

I'll have to agree with Al here...you could bump the contrast a bit on the color pic, or use a different B&amp;W conversion to gain more highlights. Have you tried using Channel Mixer in PS? Things can get pretty interesting...

Nice pics tho!

Thinking this is the image you wanted to show (could only see a red X on your post). My apologies if I grabbed the wrong one here, but it was the newest image in your portfolio ... so I made a leap of faith. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I would say the color one here, 'cause the black &amp; white one's tones overall are too similar to each other (lighter skin tones too close to the tones in the sky, darker skin tones too close to that of the water).

Definitely color here. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Glad to be of help, Ami. By the way, I'm partial to the b/w version myself. Just sets a nicer, timeless mood to me. Then again, since better than half my career was done woking with b/w, I have to admit I'm biased to the stuff ... lol
