Default Color or B/W for this Panorama?

I was just rounding the neighbourhood and thought that a panoramic scene was due.
Please tell me what works best, BW or color, and if the composition is ok.

If you go non-colour, I think sepia may work even better. The BW gives it a rustic/old feel. Sepia will push it further in that direction. The colour looks good too - depends on where you would want to display it. It would be nice to do something about the right hand sky/sun area. It feels a bit unbalanced given the symmetry you have everywhere else. Not as noticeable in the B&W.

B&W... but take it from the R channel.

Or go with color, and overlay the color at 25% opacity on the R channel. Although really, it all depends what effect you're after.

Just my 2 cents.

I wasn't sure if much could be done - so didn't try to produce an example myself. Perhaps some gradient masking - haven't really tried it myself (need to get a PS4 guide book as I'm sure it could be done.)

It just felt a bit too bright in that corner. Looking at it today, it's not as noticeable as I thought it was - I think it was night and I had my office lights off so the bright area just jumped out at me. Probably not as big a deal if printed.
