    Wanted some opinions on whether my B&W conversion was better than the color pic. Which do you think looks better?[​IMG]

    Color for sure but you can improve the impact if you crop to 4 x 5 (1/4 off the right and a little off the top) thus moving the cat slightly to the right and up to put it at the right third. (Since your profile says no edit, I sent a crop by PM)

    In B&W you lose the color impact and the selective color eyes look gimmicky.

    Very nice color shot.

    Thanks for the reply's. I too agree on the color version but a couple of fellow students liked the B&W. Thanks for the input.

    With the great colors in there, the color one is definitely my choice too. And I usually love B&W.

    Colour. The subject is lost in black and white.
