Which do you like best?
Beautiful facade

For me, although the b&w retains some of the magic whilst emphasising structure more than the colour version, I think the colour version conveys more of the magical atmosphere of the nature of the building and the scene as a whole.
Edited. Nope, no fence-sitting, despite the atmosphere in the colour version, the b&w is more wowwy for me.

@dulciknit - Yes, figures. You like the contrastiness (is that even a word?) It shows in your own images. So do I. But not sure which I like best - artists prerogative. LOL.

@netkonnexion It's more that I like how the lighting picks out the shapes in the structure of the building than the contrastiness for its own sake. And the way the building is lit is rather lovely.
'Artist's prerogative', LOL!

A difficult decision, as both are grand, but at first glance I chose the monotone version - it showcases the building to the degree that I hardly noticed there were people in the photo!

This looks really good in B&W, too, and I love the little specks of stars in the sky. I think I like them both equally.
December 17th, 2020  
Both beautiful, I like the warm tone of the colour version.

The light here has a wonderful effect on this impressive Manor.

Hard to choose which I prefer. The b&w shows the detail of the architecture, but I love the warm colour of the other. If I were forced to choose, it would be the richness of the colour image.

Lovely photo!
December 17th, 2020  
I like both versions, but I think the colour shot has the edge
December 17th, 2020  
Great processing.

Beautiful edit pops on black
December 17th, 2020  
Looks great in B&W, but I prefer the color version
December 17th, 2020  
I love the warmth and “kerb appeal” of the colour one a lot. So inviting. I like the drama of the mono too because of the way the light works. On balance, I choose the colour one because it makes me want to climb into the photograph and explore the building. Mono I would look at on a wall and enjoy. Colour is pulling me through the frame for an adventure.

Great B+w shot of this beautiful old building.

I like the black and white. The contrast is so striking it really emphasizes the impressive size of this building and the strong vertical architecture. That's why I fav'd it as well!

I prefer the colour version
December 18th, 2020  
I don't think I could decide, both are wonderful shots in their own right.

Great response @casablanca

Beautiful
December 18th, 2020  
Amazing edit! Love them both-can't decide!
December 18th, 2020  
Fav. I cannot decide which one of the two shots is the most beautiful. They are both amazing. And the Manor is fantastic .
fantastical

Such a beautiful building and the b/w really wins in showing its architectural merits , beautifully lit and great b/w tonal values !
December 18th, 2020  
Outstanding black and white!
December 18th, 2020  
Terrific capture, looks great in b/w!
December 19th, 2020  
That one is a stunner! Very striking in BW, emphasising the lovely lighting. And are those real stars in the sky?
December 20th, 2020  
The color one is definitely my favorite, but that's just the way I am all the time!
