We all see things differently cause for me the colour makes it wonderful.
I like the black and white better as well, I think it brings out more the the textures and shapes, where as the color picture leads the eyes to the colored areas.
I like them both!
Actually, I like both photographs. They each have their own charachter.
I love B/W it always seems to show a little something the color missed, which is hard to believe for me, cause I am a total color fan. Great job.
Love the color version myself!
