    Black and white for me, it gives a timeless feel. Well shot!

    B&W definately as it draws attention more to the people as that wooden chair stands out too much in colour. I'd be tempted to darken the two light bits in the background ever so slightly and increase the contrast a smidgen, but I can't stop fiddling when I start!!

    I'm a big fan of BW, so naturally that's the one I go with in many cases. I like it here, too. I'd suggest using a bit more of the green channel when desaturating, if you can, to lighten the grass in the background, so that dad's hair contrasts a bit more with it. Great photo, though!

    b&w gets my vote! very cute! i find the bright yellowish wooden chair by the girls face in the color version distracts from the sweet moment
