B&W or color for retouched image

Let me know which do you prefer, b&W or color? I did a skin retouch only. I didn't touch the hair, I know I know hair should also be retouched. Comments are welcomed.

I really like the B&W, i'm in the minority since most I've asked liked the color.

B&W

Good job. I prefer the B n W version, but I would have fixed the small dents on her eyebrows, and the one on her forehead (where the shadow is). Also a slight dodging on her right cheek, in order to make the transition a bit smoother. Over all its a nice job.

I'm sorry I took a shot of your picture, but only so you can see what I mean.
Same thing happens to me when I retouch, when I think I'm done there is something else I missed.
I also included a stray hair there.

Regards

I see what you're talking about now. It's not as noticeable when viewed at higher resolution.

She does have nice skin. But when viewed at a higher resolution the imperfection are magnified by a lot. Believe it or not, it still took me many hours to retouch the skin.
