The mono V2 hardly seems necessary.

Colour for me Bill, because it gives a lot more depth to the image Smile

I can't chose between each of them as they are both excellent Bill.

Great use of focus, Bill!

Colour or mono makes two very good shots Bill.
Again great use of dof.

I have been keeping an eye out Bill,for a bit of rust I can upload in a long pano' format.
The middle section here could be a candidate for that !!
Good bit of grot.

The color gives it character, but the mono is rather beguiling as well. I would crop the bottom in the mono, or some reason it is more distracting than in the color version.

I think you need the colour, Bill, to portray your beloved rust in all its glory...

Kinky wasn't invented in the 20th Century as we know Bill, they were at it behind the pyramids way back before bicycle sheds. The sepia would've won hands down without showing the colour. The rust just adds a certain edge.

Like the shallow depth of field and colour works best for me, Bill.

The ferrous oxide needs the colour, for a certainty . . .

A good sneak preview Bill, and both versions work really well, but going with V1 as my fav'.

Nice use of the aperture in the boat as a frame for the main subject.
I like the colour version as it has the deep rich redness of the rust which is absolutely wonderful.
I do however also like the mono version, it is an image that lends itself well to this conversion.

'The v2 sepia monochrome slightly edges out the color, for me,' today, Bill~
