Hey guys and girls, i'm after some advice on a photo I took today of my 20 month old cousin, which will be part of a series. Pretty simple advice really; black and white, or colour.

Most of the shots are very similar, and i'll probably end up using a mix of b+w and colour images, but if you'd like to give any input on this one shot it would be very much appreciated.

PS: I think i've lost some detail uploading the shots, but ahh well...

There seems -- on my monitor at least -- to be a bit of a color cast to the color image, so my vote goes to the B&W.

I really like the colored one. I think it brings the child out more and shows me what a happy little guys he is! I think if the picture was taken more of just his face with his gorgeous eyes then the picture would be great in black and white but I think the color captures the mood of what he is doing so much better. He is a cutie!!

The sandbox is reflecting green onto him which is giving the color cast. I like B&W too. :D
