You are right Howard, B&W is better, it took some time to show what I was seeing in my head. I like B&W better, still looking for some old Soviet Lenses.

NIKON D300S 1/2000 second F/2.8 ISO 200 16 mm

Nazzareno from Rome, Italy

Nice b&w and excellent composition!

Color is good, too, but have to say this image is dramatic in black and white.
I hear that winter is getting you down.
Thank heavens for AM3 .... You can see life in all other environments and climates.
Still, I like what you see and the way you see it.

@DULCIE: You are right it is a downer! Since I grew up in Fremont and then lived in the Modesto/Merced area for about 25 years, winters here are bad for a California boy.... :-D

Much more interesting (for me ;) in B&W, adds depth & drama for sure.

I think BW in this particular perspective & scenario works better than the color version. Works better referring to the low dynamic range and shadowless lighting. The high contrast makes the wall stands out. There is also a sense of social awareness of urban decay. There are also many lines & curves going on. Dude, you can do a whole series on this wall, haha!
