A shop window in Cardiff.
Well seen franken, good to see the colour but for me the mono version has more depth.
Can see what Richard says about the mono but I like the colour I think it gives it that Glam feeling

I was undecided as to what version to put up first and the deciding factor was the glam feeling.
Two fantastic and great capture,
V2 for me - it just has more mystery and takes more time to work through the layers of reality and reflection. It's also colder and darker - I like dark...
I read about a study made in an art gallery a couple of years ago - an exhibition was designed to include similar compositions in colour and b&w, and researchers timed how long visitors spent looking at each picture. On average, people spent twice as long looking at the b&w work. I reckon this comparison is a good illustration of how that works.
Colour for me....
Both fantastic , i like the colour one best !
I prefer the mono version the colours add an unwanted diversion from appreciating the finer details.
the warm tones of the color version are appealing, but, as Moira already said, the bnw version slows down the vision and stimulates more our brain.
both good in any case
Mono for me too Ken
V1 has a nice warm feel to it but V2 shows up the reflections better and has more depth
V2 for me Ken, it really works ever so well with good detail.
the two adverts are quite compelling...does it need the vertical on the left tweaking perhaps?

Great shot Ken. I reckon I agree with the above comment.
Although I do think the coloured version is superb, I have to go with the mono, great work Ken.
I'm still undecided.... but two great shots Ken!
Has to be mono for me Ken great reflections and the look of wonder what he is taking a photo for on the girl, excellent.
I'm another mono man, if you see what I mean. I didn't notice the shop assistant in the colour version at first. Another example of colour confusing our perception of detail.
The shop assistant has the virtue of looking real
Either/or for me Ken and I didn't notice the shop assistant until I read Bills comments.
Well I can't choose between these two today, and I don't think I need to. I love the rich colour, but also the detail and tones in the b/w.
I must say I like both, you have an aptitude for this type of shot Ken, I doubt I could get the same results if I tried, great stuff, regards Leon.
I love both versions you really do shot this type of image so well - Elizabeth xx
It's a super image Ken - mono just seems more defined.
Both are excellent Ken you do these images so well..lin
A visual treat
V2 seem to be better in my eye...
Another nice find...
V2 by a whisker for me - well seen and captured. A
It looks like that blonde shop assistant is watching you Ken, it may be time to make a sharp exit incase you get told off for taking pics! Both versions are very good and as always your street scenes are a real joy to view
