The color version is better in this case as it is very monochromatic in presentation making the color of the child's face a delightful surprise.   Of course, free opinions are worth exactly what you pay for them, but I think in this case a full-width square crop would strengthen the image by cutting out all of the other color details, and the top and bottom of the door, reducing the image to vertical and horizontal monochrome lines, and the child with nothing to distract the eye.   YMMV

That would change the whole intention of the photo. I do not mind cropping at all, but that would be too much I think. since it is not a failed composition as it is.
