    As much as I LOVE black and white, some images are best in color and I feel that this is the case with this image!!

    What do you think - color ... or B&W?

    Color. The surfboards lose a lot I find in the B&W. (Although I find the bench and bricks better in B&W, I still think the overall is better in color)

    color.
    the boards benefit far more from the color version.

    Agree - color for the boards and also because there's quite a bit of yellow in the boards, which balances against the yellow bench. I might crop a little off the left side.

    Color! I wish the wall were more muted to draw your attention to the boards and the lady though.

    Yup. Color. Love the shot but agree too much of bench showing, woukd love to see it cropped to highlight the subject and boards.

    The B&W is too muddy. Need to use a different contrast filter ... or better on #4 fiber based paper with a selenium toner ... maybe.
