Tracy:

I always take my pics in color (maybe because I am a scrapbooker and like to have that many options for printing).

But I am sure that if the camera offers the option, is because some people take pics b&w from the get-go.

It was hard trying to find an example that do not have my daughter as the main subject :-). I took this pic when playing with the manual modes in my camera.

color version:

Have to go with the color version on this one too.

I think depends more on the pic itself. I like to do all color, then I can choose.

I'll take the color, although I know what you mean...some photos really look great in B&W, but not this one to me. I agree with taking in color and then chnaging to B&W later if I want to.

B+W is all about texture and such. Also, sometimes you don't want to detract from the subject (whether it be a face or a tree), by distracting the eye with color. Look at Ansel Adams, some of the best shots taken (IMHO),
were with black and white. Patch
