In color or b&w?

DancingDolphin I like the b/w, my eye focuses more on the group of girls in the foreground and then wanders around to the setting. In the color shot, the bright blue of the counter is the first thing my eyes see and it becomes a less interesting photo. If it were mine I'd probably fine tune the b/w a little by upping the contrast just a little and sharpen it some as well. I just happen to think all b/w's benefit from a little sharpening unless you use a tripod. It's an interesting photo!

leifmaler I prefer the coloured one.
The Girl in red catches my eye first, and then i see the small shops in the background.
The b/w photo seems very grey to me.

Eiram Colour for me, please:) Maybe this is the time of the year, but I long for the colour! I like how the blue colour repeats itself: on the stall, the boy´s tshirt and the chair for example...

SADHYA B&W seems to integrate the composition. I agree with Jacki's comments.

mariadamaris Hard choice, but I'd go with the black and white for the same reason as dancingdolphin.

????? I think b&w looks better.
In b&w the faces of the girls have the total attention.

NellyBly I like the b/w (I usually always like color best) because the color distracts from the girls..b/w emphasizes their features and focus is only on them.

dreamie Indie tylko w kolorze! Właśnie wczoraj wywoływałam cyfrowo zdjęcia koleżanki z Indii - te kolory to magia, coś dla czego warto tam pojechać, mimo ceny biletu, komarów i śmieci na każdym kroku.

Jothindra Pandka, What a question you have posed to us all. I think this photo was taken in Rajasthan, India. Right? This state is known for its vibrant colours. In fact, the Maharaja's in the past wanted their cities to be identified by the colours. For example, Jaipur is known even today to be the ,"Pink City". That is because one of the Raja's ordered the subjects in 1853 ( or was it1876?) to paint all the houses in the city in Pink colour during the occasion of the visit by the then Prince of Wales! Even today, the old city is maintained in this colour.

Similarly, in the same state there is Jodhpur which is identified by blue. Interesting, ha!

Unchained I prefer mostly colour pictures, especially when you have the chance to take pictures with so many lovely colours, I would only enhance a little bit the colours to make them more vibrant,
