Much better in color! I feel a difficult color shot is worth the extra effort. Sometimes B&W is often used as a way to avoid difficult color processing.

If you are motivated, curious, and talented, it probably makes more sense to invest in gear and time, rather than pay people to teach you things you can possibly learn on your own. Plus, gear is expensive on its own. And a few a la carte classes and workshops can go a long way to filling gaps in your experience. If you're in a big city, you can apply to crew for a photographer to learn lighting techniques.

The scarlet and blue do look lovely in the edited version but personally I still prefer the B&W version. I "see" more of the expression there - the eyes and mouth... Where as in the color version my eyes keep meandering between the two scarlet areas and sometimes to the blue area. Never still and so that does not allow me to "see" the picture. The colors are beautiful though. But then that is probably just me and my love for B&W...

Wow! Have you not been reading the threads? We the people have a Jeckle and Hyde syndrome. Just visit some of the popular threads  ;)

Ok but seriously there is so much collective knowledge here I have enjoyed all the interaction and gained a lot.

Have fun.

Welcome!
You will find trolls here like everywhere else, although luckily much less, since Canon is again the greatest gear in the world ;)

The Bonobos is an APE, not a monkey. I don't know why that irks me, since it's such a common mistake.
Nevertheless, very nice capture.

 I like the "light" color version. The full color satiates me right away and I need to move on since I had enough, the faded color version draws me in wanting more...  :)

I've really liked the B&W version of the tribal photo. It would be great if you can crop out the mouth to draw focus to the catchlights  ;)
