Default Opinions appreciated

Do you think this image works in B&W? Is it too dark are two light?
This is Mesa Verde for those that don’t know.

I updated and added the color version.

Hi jj,
Do you have this picture in color, too, for comparison?

Wow, jj, that color version is nice. The trees framing the settlement are better in color, I think. Just my opinion
(I have to admit we went to Santa Fe a few years back and really liked the color and warmth of adobe and sandstone, so I'm a little prejudiced I guess.)

JJ; I love the color version! Sorry, but the B&W seems a little underwhelming to me; but it's not your photo; I've just always been a fan of color.

Both photos are great, but the colour version works better for me. The b&w seems a little flat in comparison.

JJ now that I can see the color version, I agree with Dyane, both are beautiful, but the dynamic of the colors tone are incredible

I vote for the colour version, seems more natural, some pictures are suited to Black and White, but this isn't one of them, just my opinion.
