    Ok. So here's what I think. I would love the colour picture if the whites were not so blown out! It would one of my favs portraits then. On the other hand I like sepia, but it lacks something....

    IMO clowns should be in color but i agree with the blown out area...i don't know what to advise except shooting it again. the sepia is lacking contrast.

    Quite so: the sepia photo is bland. What was the "real" black and white conversion like? I wonder?

    I do agree: the whites are blown out, and the face is almost a tad underexposed... but it is the angle that brings this about and explains it.

    If it is only the decision between colour and sepia that you want us to help you make, my vote is for the colour.

    You have to have color for clowns! BTW-I like you angle in this photo.
