Serious business

For the past few days I've put up shots with a lot of colour. So for today, I've decided to put up a black and white shot of a young entrepreneur in the midst of his business dealings. I liked the contrast of the casual attire against the white of the paper over which he was holding a discussion on - casual yet so serious.

Question: Do you prefer colour or black and white images?

I am a black & white loving photographer at hat. However there are times for each to be used. This image for me is one of those times when a monochrome image I feel is best. Good shot.

I read your description above, however you know what I think is missing? His face. But who knows, maybe including his face would not have made the image work.

Interesting..did you set up anything on the lighting? Something about it doesn't seem right here. Also seems to be lacking contrast but what do I know I'm not the best at this B&W yet.
There was no setup lighting. It was all available light and f/2.8. I'm not a big fan of flash or setup shots.
Photography is all about lighting and sometimes you have to control it to get a good shot.
