Jellybeans!
I'm a bit in love with the idea of doing them monochrome, but looking at it, I don't think it has worked as well as the colour version. So here, friends, is your opportunity to talk me into/out of the artsy-fartsy black and white thing.

I vote colour! Like the composition of the first one though.

Black and white emphasizes the scene as a whole, with the emotions associated with it.

Color emphasizes the component parts.

In the case of jelly beans, there's not a lot of emotion to be wrought out of them, so color probably makes the best use of their properties. Though, I suppose if you had them spilled on a side walk and one of them had been stepped on, that would evoke a suitable emotion.

I'm going to have to think about that a bit. Emotion is not something I deliberately set out to evoke. Sometimes I get it anyway, and I like it when it happens but I lack the confidence to do it deliberately.
Mostly what I try and do I think is say either "Look at this - it is both ordinary and strange at the same time. That's what makes it cool! So look!" or "This is what I saw today, and this is how I saw it. It was beautiful, and I want to share it with you."

Colour for jelly beans...it's a horses for courses thing really. B&W works for somethings, colour better for others. Jelly beans definitely work better in colour.

I prefer the second (color) image, though the first one is awfully good too. They evoke very different things.
