    I like the black and white one personally, although I usually do prefer b and w to color. The reason I don't like the color as much is because the colors aren't very vibrant.

    I normally like b/w also. But for this shot I think I prefer the color. It's not as dramatic as the b/w, but it conveys a cold feeling, maybe early in the morning? I like the compo too.

    I agree with Woodsac. I think the colour version tells more of a story.:)
    Keep 'em coming!!

    If i were to hang one on my wall i'd pick the B+W, just makes the image stronger i think, but i know what woodys saying the colour is more cold looking and truthful to the climate it was taken. nice pic tho :thumbup:

    Well i like the black and white. I like it better because the blue in the color one is to...wel blue. there is not quite enough colorfull action for me. The black and white works remarkably well I really like it.

    Good shot.

    Colour!!!! I just love muted colours. i like the B&W shot but for me the grass needs to be lightened while the sky needs to be darker.
