I liked the warmth of the colour version, but for me this shows the colour to have been something of a distraction, and fixes the attention much more firmly on the white Winnie.

I've just re-visited the colour version and I have to say that the mono version comes out on top!
A great image of a great statesman, Bill!

I missed the colour Bill so it must have been a weekend upload.
Not around here so much then nowadays.
No surprises though to hear I do prefer colour !!

It is the color version for me. I think the contrast sets him off much more attractively.

The colour version shows the one in the middle better but I still think I prefer seeing this in b/w. I like how the profiles stand out more for me and the back one seems mysterious in the shadows.

If the foremost Churchill was any colour but white it would have to be a colour image but as it stands the mono works best for me.

I think the same, Bill.
