Color for me JJ. Nice and sharp.

Generally, I like color for nature shots. People, street scenes, vintage cars, old buildings (barns) etc. often do well as B&W.

As Jehan said, and I agree, nice sharp shot.

I converted your continuous tone B&W to a 3 tone B&W and it looks ok as a graphic. While I agree with Hawgwild, about his use of B&W, in this case it really works well in both cases. It has strong graphic elements as well as being a shot of vegetation and looks equally well either way.

Both versions look great, black background might look better on the [email protected] version

Jehan, Robert, Bynx and Musket.

First of all I want to say thanks for taking the time to comment, it is appreciated.

I also had a hard time picking a favorite. I guess they both work in there own way.

Musket I did think about going black but the background is a treeline about 200 feet back and was curious if anyone would know.

Prefer the colour, but if you're going with black/white, I prefer musket's edit.

I actually wouldn't mind seeing the same edit but in colour...
I quickly did it (poorly) and it looked promising...

As conor suggests the same edit in colour

Well done! In my opinion, that's the winner right there!
