    Well B&W can certainly cover up a bad paint job.

    Black and white, but then I am a black and white person, been doing it for 64 years.

    On my monitor the black and white version has a short greyscale, which is strange for an HDR photo (especially for the barn it's self. That door and window frames are not a middle grey , which red would be in greyscale.

    B&W as an artistic expression; color to sell to the owner.

    I would say B&W since the toning and saturation on the color one is WAY over done... otherwise I would say color...

    Weighing the technical merits of each image, the bw would have a slight edge. The color version is overdone, colors coming through too strong. If you went back to square 1 and kept the processing reasonable the color version would be better, probably.

    Something that has stuck with me about when to go BW: if the colors don't really add much to the image , then go the BW route..here I think the Colors have potential .
