Black & White vs. Color

Awhile back I posted a few photos with the tag line Film vs. Digital. This post revisits that debate but with a slight twist. This time around its Black & White vs. Color. This is actually an ongoing debate among a lot of photographers. Several photographers prefer black & white over color but ever since technology allowed for color it has steadily gained popularity. At its first introduction it was regarded as tacky and not professional but now it holds just as much importance if not more than black & white. The above photographs were both shot on film but one was shot on black & white film and the other on color film. The black & white version is now one of my more famous photos and to honor it I decided to revisit the site and experiment by shooting it on color film to see the difference. Either way I think it is a powerful photograph but it was an interesting experiment to say the least. What do you all think? Do you like the old black & white version or the color version?
