    Yesterday I went for a walk on a trail, there you can see an old railroad that has been abandoned for a loooong time. I took some pics but I'm not sure which version I like better:

    As do I. Cool colors recede, warm colors project. This principle gives added depth to the image that gets lost in black and white.

    I was about to say B&W, but after reading the other posts I changed my mind. The foreground is nice in the B&W but the back looks a little flat.

    Color, the B&W version just seems too dark.

    I think I like the color more, except looking at it, I feel like you ought to nudge the tint up or down a tad. It just seems like the color photo wants to have a vintage feel to it, but doesn't. I think if you did that, I'd much prefer the color version. But as is, I think I'd take the black and white.

    great shot, by the way.
