    I'm with Dean; I love a good B&W, but this screams to have its colour left in!

    Color. The gold color of the dead grasses and reflected sun on trees plays well off the darkness that lies ahead. That slight sky is nice too. It could be your conversion but the color has way more depth and meaning. This is one of those images where color composition has added meaning. Just my non expert opinion.

    Another vote for color. I would normally love this in B&W, but seeing the color version, I love it.

    I think both are great in their own way....

    Color has a nice fall look & feel.

    B&W has mysterious, dark feel.

    The B&W is nice but the colour reminds me of one of those old paintings that would be up in a dining room or den.
    So I also vote colour.

    I am actually kicking around the idea of having this one printed with barn wood framing.
