Default The way we were

Went camping in the mountains last week. Stayed at an RV resort that had a lot of old relics from the days when the area was a magnet for gold prospectors, including several old wagons. Wondered which you would prefer...the color version or B&W. Here is the color version with some PP in Photoshop and Topaz Adjust.

My pick is the color. I just think there is too much great color to give up. The wood on the wagon shows much more detail with the color than b&w.

When PP is used, then I think the original version should be shown as well as the adjusted versions
so that we can see and determine if the PP was a plus or a minus. Here is another version with more contrast added.

Not trying to be a contrarian here, but I like the b&w. It provides that nostalgic flavor that the wagon deserves, in my opinion. Both are great, however.
