Colour for me, it makes more of the detail.

Take the highlights down a peg or two and up the contrast and the B&W will work much better. It looks like you have the fabled moire too

Crop a bit off the top and right. Either works but the moire needs sorting too. K.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Colour for me too, although this isn't one of your recent best Alistair. There's a lot of moire on the jackets and this isn't a K-5IIs (hope we don't get into pointless discussions about that again)!

You're right David, wow can you just imagine that moire if it was a K5IIs

Interesting about the colour vs B&W - I remember not that long ago (your pano bandstand shot Alistair)), saying it needed colour, and being shouted down ... 'No, the mono gives it a timeless quality ... go and study the art of photography Nigel' (something like that!) , and here people like the colour !?!?.

If this is not a shot that demands the 'timeless quality' then what the heck is ..???

Exactly. The relative brightness keeps drawing my eye. Makes me wonder if she is intended as part of the story that is being told (perhaps, "was it something we said?", or " great lads, now she's gone we can go and look at some trains").

Colour for me too. Crop a bit off the top (16:9?) and desaturate a bit, try and get some highlights back.

Colour or mono? Its six and two threes for me. Both work well as a 'street' photo and there are those who say black and white is best for street photography but I'm not one of them. As has already been suggested, take down the too bright highlights and it works even better. The highlights bother me more than the moire. Whatever you do don't crop out the woman in the doorway.
