    I'm having trouble choosing which one on this picture. Black and white or colour?

    I like the B&W version...the color one is just too blue.

    Normally I'd go with black and white, but in this case I'm leaning more towards the colour shot. I like the blueish tint - it sort of matches his eyes, which I think is a strong feature here.

    Pick one that you think is the strongest.

    B&W for me too.
    The blue is too cold IMO

    What amazing eyes...I could look at them for hours!!

    I'm leaning towards the B&W only because in the "blue" one the shadowing on the left side of his face is more distracting. Were you able to lighten up that shadow, I think the blue one is stunning.

    I'm not sure on the third picture. I think it's lacking something, I'm just not sure what...perhaps "those" eyes!!

    I like the b/w one best - and I'm not overly fond of the other pic - it doesn't connect with me much. But the 1st b/w is good!

    IMHO the B&W. I feel that it has more presence than the color. The color one seems to have too much blue to it. Just my opinion, I am really just a noob around here, so take it for what it is worth.

    Thank you for all the comments. :) Was really helpful. I guess the reason I picked that picture from all the others was because of the eyes lol. The second picture I had to do something with because that was his favorite.

    Thanks again and Brokepilot you don't have to be a professional to know what pleases the eye. ;)
