Which One?

This picture was taken at our park. My son was enjoying some quiet time playing in the water with a stick he found. After looking at the original, I decided to see what it would look like in black and white. So here are both versions. I'm curious as to which one people like better.

9.4 mm. F3.5 @ 1/350s @ ISO 64


  1. I like the color one better... just a preference... B&W is a special thing to me... Something I can't easily explain... It's like if you ask a painter why they used blue, they might say, because it's supposed to be blue.

    No "real" answer. but, for the artist, that IS the appropriate answer.

    Was I tking about the sky?

  2. I like the black & white... makes the photo seem timeless or something. Also, in the black & white, Im immediately drawn to your son. In the color photo, the water is distracting and I look at that first.
