->> Adobe RGB.

You can always reduce a RGB color space down to sRGB by throwing away the unneeded colors -- like using only half the colors in a big box of crayons

However, you can never go from sRGB to full RGB because the camera threw away colors when the image was cooked in-camera as a JPG. You can't regain what doesn't exist anymore -- like trying to create certain colors/hues that are in a big box of crayons when all you have is a small box.

It doesn't matter if shooting RAW because no color space is assigned until you process the photo in Photoshop or Lightroom.

->> I shoot in AdobeRGB but send as sRGB: PhotoMechanic has a nice checkbox to "convert to sRGB" on "upload" or "save as", and I use that.
I have the widest color space for the original files, but my destination for sending these days is the web mostly, and that looks much better with sRGB.
In the old days, the guys in the shop downstairs would take our files and work them for print edition. So Adobe RGB was best for that. But as we all know, there are no more guys in the shop downstairs.. the files go online or print mostly as is, so sRGB looks better.
