    I like the color version better... But I like photography because of color, so I'm a bit biased... :)

    But honestly..I like being able to see the subtle colors in the owl, where that detail is lost in the B&W...

    I also think the color is better. Not sure why, it just seems to fit the photo better.

    I would have to say the color also. The colors in the wings seem lost in blck and white

    It's such a hard decision, isn't it? Sometimes I split the difference and make it sepia lol.....

    I like it in color and black and white, but it really depends on what you plan on doing with the pic since both versions are successful (IMHO)...I liked the B&W because of the raw power it conveyed.

    I prefer the B&W for this picture.There's something I didn't like about the background of the color version which made me choose B&W, but I think both are very nice copies of the photo.

    I like the B&W one better except for the loss of detail in the bird.
    for me, the green backround doesnt do much where as the black dark backround in the B&W really makes the bird pop out at you...

    Personally I like the B&W better. But I always tend to lean that way. I'm a sucker for B&W photos.
