    I prefer the B&W although I think that it needs a bit more contrast.

    I messed around with the black and white one a bit and came up with this...does it look any better or worse? LOL

    Normally I'm a b&w fan, but in this case I like the color version better. A bit more contrast as with the b&w version may help the color version a little. Nice shot btw.

    Slowly learning how to use this, so here is another attempt to make a more impressionable B&W from this photo...

    I prefer the colour version. I have to say that I have never been comfortable with photos of children with their eyes closed.

    The shot was kind of candid. I got them shut on purpose, because he was being silly from being so dizzy. He was pretending he was passed out from spinning so much.

    Color, but it really does look like IR in the B&W one :)
    Are you using curves for the contrast?

    I also prefer the colored version than in b&w. The b&w needs more contrast...
