I prefer this one too. The B&W one does give a real sense of how bleak it it is. Both great shots though.

Just had a quick peek at the mono. I thought the light might look a little lost (don't know why) on it, but it looks so good on the mono. I like this one for the colours that the light brings out - so this one edges it for me

I'll go with this one. It just seems more dynamic and detailed. Sometimes it is hard to describe the difference between B&W and colour and it is more of an impression vs. which one is actually better.
