    The metal colors are pretty interesting, but the green grass is distracting. Maybe de-saturate the color a bit.

    B&W looks very nice.

    I like the metal colors, and since I'm red/green colorblind, the grass doesn't bother me.

    Colour for me, but agree that the grass is too lush a green.

    The B&W is a bit too stereotypical/unimaginative.

    The blue and red grab attention but then give the eye no place to go next except the grass, which unrelated in every way except being color.

    In B&W, form dominates, but then the diagonal in upper right becomes a jarring discordant element.

    B&W or color? It's 6 of one, half dozen of the other.

    I was drawn to the colors reflected in the surface of the wheel. As much as I like B&W I find myself preferring the color because of those reflections.

    The B&W seems off for some reason, not blue enough as silly as that sounds.

    Colour for me! I find it an interesting shot in colour and less interesting in B&W
