I have difficulty deciding whether this chip wagon (Roulotte à patates frites

in rural Quebec) is better in B&W or its original colours, but I think the

monochrome suits the human subjects better. Thanks for any comments.

I vote for B/W.  Having viewed both, the B/W does focus more on the subjects but in addition adds a very nostalgic feel to the shot.  Other than the graphic traffic sign this shot could have been made in the 1950's...  Well done... Mike

Thank you. I had that in mind when I posted the B&W conversion as well. Although the shot was made last week, the chip wagon is an old vehicle and the clients are country folk from the mountainous region east of Quebec City. Not many smartphones or other evidence of contemporary life in this setting, so it does appear to be from an earlier era. What I like about the color image, though, are the spots of red going from one side to the other, the bright and cheery painting of the vehicle, and the artsy clothes of the (I assume) indigenous culture ladies at the order window. But the apparent glimpse of another time, via the B&W image, has some appeal, as you mention.
