I think they look very nice in black and white. Specially the lions and Brit. The shot of Eric doesn't have the same impact for me. :thumbsup:

:) rob-thank you. i put eric in black and white for three reasons. 1)with all the touch-ups he wanted, they were easier to hide; 2)the shirt is blue and white stripes, it hurt my eyes!; 3)it's for his bio picture for a movie he was in. it kinda needed to be toned down.
now brit, hers is one of several senior portraits i did, so i could be more creative.

Looks like the striped shirt caused a problem for your digital camera, in B&W you can see a lot of zig-zag in the stripes. It reminds me of when you'd see that on TV, how the cameras would react to stripes. Maybe that's why the shirt in color hurt your eyes. I'm too new to digital to know how to compensate for that.

Very nice. I think the two people look better in B&W. The lion may look better in color.

Personally, I like the lion photo in black and white. The other two photos don't do anything for me in black and white. They would stand out more if they were in color.

:) I greatly appreciate the input. I love the differences of opinion, as I am constantly going back and forth between the exact same opinions listed here! I am posting the colored version of all 3 so everyone can get a better idea of why I tried these in b&w.

Eric ,color for sure, even though it is bright the blue shirt does bring out his eyes. I like Britt beter in B&W. Lion could go either way, like both versions. :cheer:
