Various thoughts and travels
In B&W, it makes me think the photo was taken 40 years ago. In colour, you get the lovely matching icy-blue of the sky, snow and road. I vote for the colour version.
The B&W looks better, it's the lack of color in the winter shot.
To me it is a case of looking like mid day or late evening.
I had not thought of that.
B&W is my preference here.
B&W for sure.
B&W, although the color version could be tweaked to be better.
The colour version is unedited. I see your point though.
I like them both, but prefer life in color.
