I want to send an 8x10 print of this image to Susan. Which do your prefer, B&W or color? Image was shot at 1/60 sec, f2.8, 85mm f1.4 lens, by natural light.

B&W....I too usually prefer color, but there's something about the B&W for this one that really is nice.

Ok, I'm going to go against the grain and say the color. My thoughts: The light on the right side of the frame is more dramatic in the color image. The colors in your subjects eyes echo the colors in her hair, which works very well for me. I also like the way her lips look in the color image - the natural looking pale pink is balanced out by her blush and eye shadow.
