    Just spending a little time in CS3 revisting a few past shots. Does anyone have any preference between these 2 - or perhaps neither works for you. All comments appreciated

    I would go colour as well, and bring out more detail by selectively brightening land areas in Photoshop. I would also work on the sky as well to give it a bit more impact using a software polarizing filter or a graduated ND software filter.

    interesting, everyone says go for coulour, but votes b&w ;)

    I actually prefer the b&w version ,where the halos are not that prominent, or cause less disturbance to my eye at least

    I don't think it much matters which version. My problem with the shot is the composition. I think it would look better with the empty space on the right croped out. Cropped up to the smaller tower of the walkway.

    That space is distracting in both versions to me probably not anyone else though.

    I like them both, also. If I had to chose it's probably be the b&w. Nice work either way.:thumbup:

    B&W.

    There's not enough vibrant colors on the color version, while the B&W has a cool, eerie feeling.
