Thanks everyone for yesterdays comments and votes, they are most welcome, spotted this wreck more or less in the middle of a marsh on Mull, with the range of tones I thought it might make a good black and white capture, have also uploaded the colour version, what do you think! Colour or black and white?

The B and W version does work very nicely, Trev, but in this case I have to say I do prefer the original colour version, but it's a close call.
I think there are quite a number of old boats rotting away in that area, and they do make for excellent compositions and image, as here.

2 really nice shots - like the colour one best though, which is unusual as I am a huge fan of b and w!
