[Queen of Spades]
Your plan should be to first lead up to the king of spades before taking the diamond finesse. In the first place, 1975 has been a very bad year for finesses. Secondly, you increase your chances twofold.
By leading a spade before a diamond you make the hand anytime West has either the ace of spades or the king of diamonds. By leading a diamond first you only make the hand when West has the king of diamonds. If West has the ace of spades you will be able to discard your losing diamond on the king of spades.
