    I dont know I kind of like the color version I think it needs a black border to draw your attention inwards.

    The B&W version is great.

    Well, you've got a 'done up' black and white version and what looks like a stright forward color version. If you made the color verison as gritty as the B&W one, and brought up the saturation to bring out the color of the buildings, I think it could be a little better and a little less vintage looking (not a bad thing).

    for me, B/W makes it...
    the color balance b/w snow, road n roof makes the snap more interesting...

    This is important feedback for me, so thank you one and all. I have only recently become aware of the 'dramatic impact' (if one can call it that) of B&W photographs. It seems that one can take the most banal color picture and convert it into something quite 'striking' through the simple process of B&W conversion compounded by a bit of muddling around with sharpness settings and so forth for added affect. Since I don't really know what I'm doing when I change settings, the results are totally random (I should keep written records but I just couldn't be bothered)...
