    As much as I love B&W, I actually prefer the colour version, that golden colour adds a real warmth to the shot. Very nice!

    color!

    B&W would work, but side by side here, the color is much stronger for this composition.

    thanks for the replies. color it is. I was also thinking about cropping it to shift the main subject out of its center position. since nobody object to it...I guess I'll keep the original as is. (yay, breaking the rule :bounce: )

    I think you may have already decided on the color image, but I'd just like to add that for this image it doesn't really matter. What matters is the mood that your're trying to get through with the image: warm(color) or cool(B&W). I think it could go either way. And as for the crop...don't change a thing. :thumbup:
