I prefer the color although the processing of this was excellently done. I think with a black and white image you're more forced to look at the contrast, the actual components of the image whereas with color you sometimes are stunned into silence with its beauty. Both really can be stunning. In this case, the black and white is a nice well done photo but the color just warmer and inviting.

@Self Indulgence - thanks for the thoughtful feedback. I am somewhat of a color freak myself, and always lean to color, but thought I would get outside of my comfort zone for a moment and see what you all like.

I really like the color image, especially the contrast between the white and the reddish-brown, but the black and white is excellent. I think the ravines in the foreground create a sense of motion that is really impressive.

I like the color image better, Barbara.
