    I really like the color version of this because of the street art, but for some reason (I can't put my finger on it) the B&W one has a certain charm. What do you think?

    Also, general C&C is welcome, as I'm new and only have a very little amount of photographic knowledge.

    Already, I can see I probably should've shot with a higher aperture to keep a little more of the scene in focus.

    EDIT: B&W was deleted anyway. Thanks.

    I only see the colour one. Look good that way though.

    For me, it boils down to this... if the image has strong contrasty textures, patterns, geometric shapes, etc. then I consider the color to be a distraction to noticing those other things and I prefer black & white. But if it lacks those elements, I prefer color.
