    Yeah - color. You just lose the drippy chin with B&W

    I found it interesting that so many comments found the color preferable not because of the processing, but because of the little ice drip on the chin. I removed it from the B&W,(I see now that I didn't do the best job either) because it didn't show up well.

    IMO that's a testament to the importance of a strong focal point. In a composition be it art or photography, you create a focal point using contrast, isolation, placement, convergence, and the unusual. Apparently the ice drop in the color version hit all of these.

    It tells a story. Without it, it's just s kid with a cup; with it, it's a kid that has been enjoying what is in the cup.

    #1 for me but am I the only one that gets the impression she is a little stiff due to posing? Maybe it's just me but I think she could look more natural with the eyes less fixated. Otherwise, it's a nice pic.

    No pose, she was zoned out, watching some kids behind me. I wasn't even on her radar.

    I think that the color version of the photo is quite a bit better than the black-and-white versions, for several reasons such as the Two colors of nail polish she has on, and its chipped state, the delicate bruisings she has around her knees, and the single drop Of flavored syrup that dangles from her chin. All of these things are remarkably more noticeable in color than they are in black-and-white

    Despite my best efforts to make her a tomboy, the push by her Mom and Grandmothers, has assured she we will remain a prissy little girl. :biggrin-93:

    Aaah, I see, zoned out! That explains the stiff appearance. No biggie, still a nice pic!
