I like the colour version Nezih - sad when things go to ruins, but it's been happening for thousands of years!

Lovely composition based on the track leading in and out of the image, suggesting that Time has passed by and will not return.
I have a marginal preference for the monochrome.

A deserted village, the properties falling into decay: a rather sad end to what look to be quite substantial properties but affording you an interesting documentary shot.
Think I go with the coloured version this time, Nezih.

A photographer's dream location, full of interest and fascinating textures. Just my opinion but I think both images lack contrast and if they were mine (I wish) I would adjust them accordingly. In fact I did. You haven't enabled modifications so I can't upload my versions for you to compare but if you want to see them, just message me and we will fix something.

Tourism is on the coast, and thats where the money is. Sad to see such villages decline, but great for you. Colour for me please Nezih.

An excellent composition, Nezih - how sad that this village is no more - at least, at this location.
The mono version is my favoured version - it encapsulates the atmosphere perfectly.

So many tales to be told by these old abandoned buildings...
I have a slight preference for the b&w version - it suits the feeling of a time long gone...

B&W is eerier, sadder, more desolate. I wonder why the village died? Stories...

I like the descriptiveness of the colour, and the b/w version looks like a film set. Nicely seen.

Old world grandeur - maybe the tourists aren't flocking there but it does look
great for photographers - so all is not lost.
I do like the colour version today.
