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 Wink

I was undecided as to what version to put up first and the deciding factor was the glam feeling.

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.

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

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? Smile

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 Smile
Excellent composition.

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.

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!Wink Both versions are very good and as always your street scenes are a real joy to view
