Sorry, saw this and couldn't resist!   ;D

Color. Here's B&W.

Good grab, Mike. Very Martin Parr.

I'll take the B&W. In this instance I don't feel that color adds anything. The B&W version accentuates the contrast between the two VWs.

But it wouldn't be Martin Parr-ish in B&W, Doug.

True enough. Parr is peerless in his use of color and I would bet that he'd have seen the scene differently.

I prefer the color version. That amazing blue sky really emphasizes the White and the Black of the cars. No subtle beige or off-white here.

FWIW, I prefer the B& version. The sky, in the color image, tends to grab my eyes…
