The next day I posted the color version and asked which version people prefered.
It was not a fair fight. 100 % of the commenters voiced their preference for the color version. My two Tims (Timothy S. Allen and Timothy Price) both commented on the processing and I went back to discover the b & w was never processed. It was straight out of camera. So I have, hopefully, improved the odds and ask you again, “which do you prefer?”
