Inside outside (potw #29)

This post continues last week’s theme of simple, uncluttered portrait pictures. I wouldn’t normally post two pictures of the same person, but I just can’t decide which of these I prefer, wider in colour or closer in black and white.  What do you think?

    Yes, the b&w shot. There’s something deeper in the expression in that one.

    Prefer the black and white, mostly because he is looking right into the camera. That it is a tighter shot also helps.

    I prefer the wider shot. There’s just something about the way he’s looking, waiting, anticipating something

    I enjoy the wider shot – something about the mystery of what he’s looking at and the punch of blue from the gates that pleases my eye!

    Thanks for the replies everybody. I make it 4-3 to the black and whites, but there’s still time for the blues to make a comeback.

    The color version pops up more than the black and white!
