Here are two versions of this photo of Italian Greyhounds. I am curious to hear which version is the better of the two. I've got a little background story at http://goo.gl/lXK4q

Agreed. It separates the two animals better, making each an individual.

How could there even be a question? The dogs markings are critical elements that only the color version can show.

Also vote for color, although both images look good, think color suits the most

For me it comes down to 'purpose' or expectation.

If the image is to offer a description of the dogs' features then the colour defines the features more accutately.

If, on the other hand, the image is a 'portrait' of the dogs then I far prefer the black & white.  But then, I would, wouldn't I?

Either way, a commendable shot.

Regards,

Another vote for the colour version. For reasons amply explained above.
