The mono has more life to it. The colour image is very smooth but the mono has a gritty appearance. The addition of grain can look good, though here it doesn't have the attractiveness that film grain would have, so maybe it's something in your processing. Either no grain or more film-like grain would work better.

As for content and timing, both are fine and I wouldn't really change anything.

I've created a mod in colour with some aa curves adjustment overall and a localised curves adjustment for the woman, just to boost the contrast and give some extra punch and to make her face stand out. Slightly cropped, too.

An interesting image but not to the standard of the last one. The colour version is under exposed and very flat giving rise to a patchy flatness in the mono version.

However, the mono does work much better and your processing has brightened the image up. It's difficult to understand why the colour version is so flat.
