Really like this image - for me the colour one just pips the monochrome.

Only niggle I have is that the missing piece of glass just leaves a very dark area that distracts the eye.

I like the colour version, but I did copy your mono version and try a little grunging effect on it and it worked well. Great idea for an image very well executed.

Colour again, the blue/greens of the window glass look great, Albert.

V1 for me, there's something about the quality of the light on the glass.
Right up my street, and reminds me of one of yours that I've always appreciated!
I think I'd like the window squarer in the frame, a bit of skewing bottom right...

Colour for me as well, a little bit more interesting than the b/w version.

An image that conjures up so many questions: you have a good eye for spotting a photo opportunity.
Well done, Albert.
Like both but the coloured version just ahead for me.

A rather beautiful and certainly thought provoking composition, which works so much better in its original colour form.

I'm going with the flow Albert - for colour. The grubby windows provide an excellent texture.

Something is lost in the mono, and I think it's the idea of it being quite a bright day outside in the colour version, but not so in the mono. I particularly like the cracked window, it adds interest.

The colour is so subtle, I prefer that as to me it gives more definition.
