@Jeremy, thanks for the comments. Just out of curiosity, what is it that you don't like about the color version - maybe, been there, seen that?
I don't dislike
the colour version; but for me, it lacks much dramatic impact. It's a pleasant photograph, one I'd be quite content to have taken, but it's nothing special.
The b&w adds interest, contrast, a bit of drama. The grasses - the subject - stand out more from the background, which is good. That said, I really like the blue toned version, which captures both the drama and the colour. It might be improved by emphasising split toning, so the white of the grasses is less affected by the added blue.
