Color or B&W?

While editing some of my images from the Palestinian elections, I came across this photograph. The boys in the group asked if I would take it and I’m glad I did. Someday I would like to go back to the West Bank town of Hebron and find out what happened to each one of these guys. Each one had a hard edge to them. They were nice in a friends-with-a-bully sort of way, but they were also the trouble makers of the town.
I originally took the photograph in color but converted it to black and white to see how it would look. I will post the color version a little late. Let me know what you think of both versions or what you think of color vs. balck and white.

    We mostly see Palestinians with some form of artillery in their hands in our media. This is refreshing, and in general I prefer black and white pictures because color often distracts from the people. Still, I’ll cast my vote when I see both pictures! Thanks Jim!
