I dunno, I like them both. The yellow caboose in the color one is nice. But I think I ever-so-slightly prefer the B&W. The framing of the shadow is cool

MedaM said...

Both photos are nice but in this case I prefer the color shot.

Sidney said...

Amazing perspective. Give me the b&w.

Hi P,
I like the B&W pic more but the photo itself also, I like your style of photography always.

I Posted some typical Dutch views today.. Have a great weekend.

This is great ans the black and white is a perfect choice. Very industrial. :) Thanks for the encouragement on my blog regarding the move....we are waiting for our container to get here from London...as well as my husband! :)

B&W is more special, maybe it's more poetic... great composition!

Have a nice weekend!

Annie said...

It's good to see the photo in B&W. Quite a different feel, one from the other, but the perspective holds in each. Nice, Sue.

Anu said...

hey,
love the pics.
like the b/w one better, um..this might sound stupid, but the bw one brings out the colors better.
for instance the sunlight slit from the shadow part.

Me Too! B&W steals the show!

I love the composition! Great framing job.

I like the B & W. It even looks like a giant pac man is going to eat the train!

Leena said...

Thank you for so many visits to my blog and for your generous comments. I do appreciate this a lot.

I like the black and white picture the best in this instance. I am surprised I said that as I seldom do like black and white over color.

Awesome game of light!

Mike said...

I like the black and white version best. Has a totally different feel to it doesn't it? Seems to take you back in time.

Moi said...

BnW...its a lovely shot, Sue!!! the symmetry of light and shadow is awesome!!!

John Roberts said...

Frame it. Hang it. Enough said!

Oh, I like the black and white version much better... Lends a quality of time to the image...
Love the bold v shape design !!

Ben said...

This one over the colour. Fantastic!

Ali said...

The black & white, by a long way! It's so much more enchanting. Great shot.

Lucy said...

B&W. All the way!!

Beverly said...

I think I like the color one better. However, they both are outstanding.

Chad Oneil said...

I like the B&W the best out of the two.

CG said...

Love your blog and I like the B&W version best!

annulla said...

Oh, the black & white is so dramatic! The color is fine, but this version is outstanding - the use of perspective is wonderfully inventive.

I love black and white photos.

Funny to find it here when we spent a couple days in a big railroad town and visited the railroaders museum and the horseshoe curve to photograph trains. :)

Mike said...

Definitely the black and white one.
