    The black and white one, I think!
    How to you even begin to shoot for an HDR with a fast moving train???

    At first I wanted to say the B&W because I am not too keen on the HDR look on colour pictures in general. But just looking at the B&W, the picture looks very busy and I think it would be hard to guess that it is a speeding train in the foreground. So, the colour version is stronger, I think...:scratch:

    Hmm, I prefer the B&W version .. but, maybe merge them into selective colour, with the train in colour and the rest in b&w?

    I think either can hold it's own.

    In this case I prefer the effect of the HDR on the color version. It gives it a more industrial feel with the rustic colors.

    I like the B&W version a lot!

    How about a faded color version...one with *almost* no color?
