Again, I am torn. Is the color image prettier? More importantly for me, which is best for bringing out her personality? Paul Capronigro said “It's one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it's another thing to make a portrait of who they are.” I’m not sure whether the color or black and white version is more effective for achieving this goal.
