Better in color or B&W?

I've been playing with this accidental image for some time now. I think I know which way I'm leaning but would like to hear others opinions. Thanks. Hopefully you can see it alright. I had to scale it down to fit the MB requirements.

I like them both, but the B&W really brings a nostalgic feeling to the capture...great shot!

id agree with the above statement but id go black and white because of such a retro looking grill to the car, the reflections of modern cars is seen more in the colour then the black and white. its a great shot. would look great if you did a couple more and made a series out of it with a triptrich if im saying that right.

I would have to go with the B&W on this particular shot because the reflections of the other cars are a little distracting to me.

I don't know if I am referring to the same thing as Kevin (triptrich) but I think this would look good as 3 image wide with the first in color, second in B&W and the 3rd using selective coloring.

Didn't know if thats what you meant Kevin, if it was sorry for hi-jacking it.

Thanks gentlemen. Exactly what I was looking for, and the primary reflection is of another old car a 34 three window coupe.

I also like the B&W due to the age of the car and the image of the other oldies with it.

Is this the 51 Mercury dad picked up?

HAHA!! Yeah, this is it Chelle. It's a real beauty but the day I made this image I was doing his insurance pics and didn't have time for more art images. I snapped this one walking up to put my camera away. I'll post more when I have them. Thanks everyone.

Both have their merits for sure - and yes, if pushed I think the mono version would win for me.

Looking forwards to seeing more when you get the chance!

Nicely done.

I'm going to be contrary and vote for the color image. I like the reflection of the red car.
