I've been to the one in Portland several times - it was the first Japanese Garden that I had ever been too and probably the best so far. It knocked me for 6 the first time and every time after its been better, the views are stunning and the tranquility and calm as soon as you enter the gardens is something else. Looks really stunning in the fall .. !
I was told is a Japanese Garden inside Holland Park, but never visited because it was winter when I visited London.
You are so lucky to had the chance to visit the Portland JG, I saw some pictures and it is majestic specially in fall.

As for colour vs. B&W, I guess so many ways to think about it. B&W abstracts and separates it from what we see everyday, like the tree. It's its own exploration. But sometimes the subject can be colour, like the fish or #6 with the warm red leaves against the cool blue sky.
Keep them coming!
Thank you for the feedback I really appreciate it, the second is the winner of that day and my favorite as well.
