Portraits look always so much nicer in sepia or in this case B&W I think... what about you?

That's a hard one, Chantal. I think I might like this a bit better.

I like the catch lights in the eyes, but the light seems a little harsh.

My personal observation is that colour, B&W and sepia all fits portraits. In general i think that colour would require some portrait work and more attention to lighting during the shoot. B&W normally comes out a little flat and the require some light accentuating to make it more exciting. I think sepia is the easiest. But all of this doesn't say which I think is better.
I think it is horses for courses. The subject and event normally gives me a feeling of the one over the other. For instance i like children in colour and the 'character' shots - wizened old man - in B&W. Example of an excellent character shot http://krce.shutterchance.com/photoblog/ 'old olive tree' which i like a lot and demonstrate what i mean with lighting accents.

I think it depends on the portrait, and who's looking at it. I've seen some superb colour portraits and others that are mono have been equally amazing.
