    Both! The colour processing is excellent and the eyes really 'pop'. The mono process is also great...

    mZuiko 12-40 f2.8 Pro, 45 f1.8, 60 f2.8, 40-150 f2.8 Pro, 300 f4 Pro

      Colour every time for me!

      B & W was a technical 'kludge' when colour wasn't an option. I don't know why photographers hang on to it. If colour photography had been invented first, B & W would be unknown!

          colour for me too Paul, its a captivating portrait and the eyes stopped me in my tracks as I scanned down the image - beautiful work (and a very pretty granddaughter too, but aren't they all )

            Both images are superb, lovely lighting and processing, if I had to choose one for display it would be the colour one.

                I think the colour has to get the vote because of those blue eyes, but gee Paul, you made this a tough one!
                I like them both.

                  Colour for me please - it's more honest.

                    Oh Paul! I keep scrolling from one to the other and I can't choose. They are both enchanting and captivating. Her blue eyes almost convince me to vote for colour, but then I see those lovely creamy tones in the B&W. Why not ask Madison to choose?

                        Colour for me!…both great.

                        Jim…I'd say mono is an abstract form as the colour has been removed…thats good isn't it? Who need colour clutter when you can enjoy the tones of mono. (except here where I like the colour more1)

                              Thank you for all the kind comments guys and I also am leaning to the colour one.
