This is a photo taken in a home studio by 25th Century Quaker on a recent trip to New York. I love the classic feel, which makes me think both of black and white Victorian photos and colour oil paintings- I really can't decide which should go in my portfolio! What do you think?

I'd go with the b&w version. There's something about your right hand in the colour version that's not right. It looks dirty/grubby or something. My eye is drawn to it...

Colour. It's almost 'Renaissance' (if that's how you spell it).
Lovely lines / composition. Are you going to hang it on your wall?

Has to be colour to show off your hair and the fabric. The black and white version looks too 'flat' to me.
