I’m experimenting with Black and White images. Which of the two images, color or B&W do you think is better and if you have an opinion why?Here is the link to the color version https://allentimphotos2.wordpress.com/2014/02/15/attitude/Thank you!

The first one in color is better for me because it is more vibrant.
Great portrait! But as was said colour works for me.
I prefer the black and white image over colour. Don’t really know why, it just works better for me in this particular image.
Thanks for this…besides a nice shot, I’ve never seen one so close up!
The color photo makes the sheep pop more, I think.
Thank you I appreciate your comment.
I’m in the minority: I prefer the black-and-white.
Thank you. Not to put you on the spot but do you have a reason?
I think that it emphasizes the important elements of the image, without any distractions. We see the subtle balance of the eyes, the ears, and the mouth; we see the negative space around the head. That’s enough. And more than enough is too much . . .
Thank you. You’re sending me back to the image to take a deeper look. Thank so much for that.
I like B/W, because it looks more peaceful.
Thank you. That’s an interesting thought.
There’s more information in the colour version though I feel that the green is distracting. I would try Nik Bleach Bypass on the mono version to bring out more detail in the shadows…or try tone mapping the image but go easy on the contrast. Watch the highlights as the colour version has detail there whereas the mono has lost it a little. Hope I’m being helpful rather than critical.
No of course not. I enjoy getting your suggestions. I’ll have to take your suggestions and try it tomorrow when I’m back home. Critical can also be constructive.
