Black and White. The mountain is the main subject here IMO. The colored foreground distracts from the mountain, veiled in beautiful mist. Mike

I'm a colourful kinda guy but I have to admit that the foreground is kind of stealing the show.

It depends what your intentions are. I agree the fg is getting more attention in color, but the processing in the monochrome shot needs work. The dynamic range is flat and I don't know where to put my eyes (light attracts the eye, while dark does not), but I think it has more potential and needs to be processed differently.

Colour. The tones are flat here, and the mountain's form is obscured by too much fog.
I agree w/WD that is has more BW potential.
