Hi,

This is a recent shot I've made. When I was on PP I got two results I liked, one on color and another on b&w.
The color version has a different crop too, I intended to do a 3 thirds division on the vertical but I also like the longuer version of the b&w.

What do you think?

Go B&W. I don't think that colour adds anything to this photo and the B&W seems to focus your eye more on the detail in the image.

You can have the best of both worlds. Consider a monochrome overlay where only the yellow squares peek through. I use this technique (ripped off from the "Shindler List" movie) occasionally. The door to Garfield's Tomb, taken Sunday...

The b&w lends a kind of "gothic" feel to the image, which juxtaposed against the modern design, gives the image some tension and intrigue. Well done.

Of the two I prefer the B&W, but Bob's idea with some colour bleed in the louvres might be interesting too...
