    I like this shot, but can't decide which is better. The black and white or the blue one. Which one works better for the photo. Is the pose ok?

    I like black and white a lot better. I like the colors in the second, but it just seems TOO unnatural and..stark.

    Ok...I'm leaning toward BW too. I just really like the color that the wall turned out. Maybe I can put the boy in blach and white and the wall in color.

    I actually like the blue one - it looks like a photo from the inside of a CD cover or like an MTV shot or something.

    Yes! I'm with Rob on this one.

    But it depends what effect you're after. If you want a nice, relaxing photo then the B&W but if you want something with a bit more edge and energy...

    I like relaxing and I like edge....this photo is tweaking my brain.

    Maybe Ill just use it both ways.

    Theres more like it, its kind of part of a series, over in the generally galery under photopoetry, if your interested.
