I'll go for the first version. In colour what we see first, and see most, is the clown's orange wig.
In mono we see what matters, the faces and in particular the boy's face.
Edit, V2 has now appeared. I'll still go with V1, in V2 the colour processing becomes the story, and that blue bowl outside the tent is much too distracting..

fully agree with Moira's argumentation: the colour versions have elements that distract the viewer..
mono wins for me too

Really nice Arne, and I like the mono version best because I feel it gives the image more depth with the shadows coming into play.

The lead is my preference. The orange wig does not come across so much in the mono but it does concentrate more interest on the sitter's face by you not being distracted by its lurid colour. Take your pick?

Has to be colour, as others have mentioned, because of the hair colour. The b&w comes in second and the analogue versoiin last - as Moira said, in that bīversion, the treatment takes over.

Great candid shot Arne!
The lead has a beautiful color detail and a true atmosphere.
The versions have a lovely processing , version one enhances the boy's attitude, "bovverd", means feeling angry or embarrassed Smile

Hi Arne personally I like V2 I understand the colour shock of V1 & the blue patch behind the boy in V1 but for me itís much to busy for black & white I like BW to be simple so the contrast jumps out but as I said thatís my personal view. nice work as usual

Wonderful Arne, that boys expression is priceless. Colour version works best i think,
mostly for the orange hair but clowns in black and white should only be seen in horror movies.Smile
