Taken this weekend at Cardiff Bay, Wales.

Simple question - Black and White or Colour?

My preference would be for the B&W version but would be interested to know which way this one goes...

Cool shots either way. Preference is b&w. Maybe if you toned the colored one down a bit to where the foreground tones weren't so warm. Love the red building though.

Both are outstanding but I think I prefer the B&W.

I love HDR but a tad too much here to my liking. But that is just my taste.
The B/W is excellant!
