    I like both, the symmetry is nice, but I prefer the colour version as I feel B+W generally works better with more minimalist compositions, and while this is not a busy composition, there is a bit going on

    I think that in color gives like a movie feeling... What do you think?

    Color for me. The mono version is too dark. Maybe processing this differently during conversion would help lift the shadows some.
    The green reflection in the shadows of the color version saves the shot for me. This is gone in the mono version.

    Both look good, each in different way, with different mood.

    I prefer the color version of this photo. The B&W is okay though, but for me, the color one has a strong edge.

    I like the colour shot. It gives the image an unsettling feel. I`m waiting for Jig Saw to walk around the corner.

    hmm ... I was going to say the B&W as it gives more of a ghostly feel (after just having my kids drag me to no less than 6 halloween places for stuff) ...

    but the odds are to the color one for some reason.
    Or is that colour ?
