Thank you all for your comments. As it currently stands (2) like the color version, (1) caught in the middle, and (5) favor the B&W.

The B&W version shows better defiintion of the mortar lines, emphasizing the geometry, so I would go for the B%W also.

I think everyone likes both versions - You held a gun to our heads and made us choose...

For such a simple subject, you really made a dramatic image!

Both version are good but I am going with the color version. Like the feeling of depth I get form the color version over the B&W.

To me it's interesting how different the two versions really are. I like the black and white version because of the geometry. Like Calicajun, I noticed the lack of depth in it, which I actually think makes it interesting - it becomes an abstract, it seems to me I've seen an artist who's paintings had a similar feel to them. The color version looks more like a real building. Love the texture and the reflections (I notice them more) that I see in the color version. It's not as much of an abstract.

It seems that the majority favors the B&W version. Although some made valid points regarding the color version. There is only one thing I do not like about the color version and that is the pinkish brown color of the bricks on the ground. They seem to clash with burnt orange bricks. I Thank you for your time and suggestions.
