I like the B&W.

The color image is too blue.

In the B&W, the wear is clearer as are the letters in the castings.

Overall, it's a lonely image, and the B&W makes it that much more lonely.

On the other hand, the background in the color photo has some depth that the B&W photo doesn't have.

If the image did not have "FOCUS" spelled out, I would be torn between which was the better representation. However, in B&W, the telescope - "FOCUS" - appears to stand out a wee bit more than the color version, so that is the one I am drawn to.

Nice shot.

im actually leaning more towards the colour version myself. i thikn punch in some very aggressive contrast on the colour version and i think the shoot should really punch

nice
