Colour works best for me, Albert, but I think the horizon needs a tad straightening. Carol

Very difficult to make my choice Albert, but I'm edging towards the colour version. Great composition.

No real decision for me - colour wins, hands down! Composition is excellent. Love the swirl of the lines in the field and the lovely sky.

Works both ways, but the warmth in v1 edges out the mono this time.

A delightful scene Albert. I never tire of windmill shots. The colour version just
"shades" it for me.
