Colour, mono showdown #10

Another tough one. 

There is that lovely film like colour I talked about in CvM #8. The file showed great flexibility, genuinely allowing me to get what I chose out of it. It was opened up from the original, the shadows lightened to show some detail, although the deeper shadows in the original added some mystery. Again I think I am drawn to the balanced warm tones, diffused and enhanced by the structure above.

There is nothing wrong with the black and white, it just lacks the warmth of the colour image. I am seeing a trend here of being drawn to colour warmth. Notice how the mono image looks not only cleaner in composition, but also sharper, possibly through lack of colour "confusion".
