    I like the color better. Even in color, there is enough B&W…

    The B/W presentation reminds me of the shots of Dresden after Bomber Harris paid a call in WW2. So for me its the color shot simply because I'm not sure what B/W can bring to the table. Color shows the reality B/W appears to make it look like a chaotic mess. Wondering whether a slight enhancement of the red tones would give it some more depth? Its a little two dimensional.

    Nice shot maureen. Definitely the colour version for me and I would leave as it is. It has much stronger separation and sense of depth and my eye flows naturally around the frame. I find it difficult to get beyond the highlights in the b&w version.

    Then color it is, for sure.  I just tweaked it a bit:

    Either image illustrates why most of the world opposes the United States' embargo against Cuba.

    definitely color.  the b&w tones are fantastic, but the subject matter works better in color.
