Oh yeah, I agree with Zal. Definitely b/w. And especially the way he's 'peeking' around the edge, it looks almost as if he's been 'caught' smoking. Cool shot. And yes, darkening the sign may be nice.

What Zal said.

Those are two different photos. I know this wasn't a choice, but I would prefer the second photo in B&W. I like the B&W treatment for this portrait, but I prefer the inclusion of the hand and cig. in the composition.

The sign is the house number.Now that it has been mentioned it is a little distracting. I may leave the item in but try to darken it slightly.
It was taken in fairly strong sunlight and for a change I was able to use the 40d's spot meter to get a reading from his face.
Thanks for the comments.

I think the B&W looks great.

I would leave the sign/box right where it is. If it was there...there is where it belongs. Keep it real.

Both are good, but the B&W is better. If you can, cloning out the box on the wall would help as well.

Yup. B/W.
