Irene from San Francisco, United States

I like the color version better.

@Irene: Yes, I do as well. It's much warmer and richer.

Doug from Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom

I must admit to being torn, while the b&w looks more artistic the colour seems to convey the sad loss of this lovely old building.

@Nigel: That's okay, Roger ...... ;-)

Stephen from Canberra, Australia

I like this version - the b&w highlights the loss of this piece of local history.

Mhelene from Villiers-sur-Marne, France

Great find and a superb framing ! I suppose nothing could help it ...!

Anthony Morgan Lambert from Bielefeld(Old West Wales Boy), Germany

Looks like it´s ready to come down all by itself !!

franz from Baden, Austria

the colour version shows the beauty of this old lady better, but the bw version transmits more of the sadness of seeing another special building taken down (and being replaced by ... what ?!?)

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

I like how the B&W treatment de-emphasizes the yellow and reds of the cution tape and danger signs.

The renovated one ; ] best…jf

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

The colour version has a warm and rich feel whereas the B&W has a much more somber feel to it! Each is special in it's own right Dulcie! Methinks it would be a tie! ;-)

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

I vote for this B&W - to me it shows off all of the lovely details and textures so well.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Looks great in B&W, too.

30 Jan 2013 11:24pm

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Great contrasts captured in this version! But I am torn between which one I like better.

Elaine Hancock from Rockville, United States

Wow! The b&w really emphasizes the detail. Wonderful image!

Lougris from Toulouse, France

dommage pour ce vieux batiment !! interessante image.

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

I find myself preferring the color version because it conveys all the more the glory of what is to be lost . .

Florence from Paris, France

What a shame. It looks it has been a great building, full of charm.

I always hate to see this...I can only imagine what will replace those years of memory.
