Hi Jim,
Although I'm a strong advocate of B&W I feel in this case the colour of the
light and the warmth it creates it's an colour photograph.

Although it can hold it's own in B&W if one were not to have both to view
side by each.

I've always understood that a better than average picture, if it works in
both mediums, it becomes a damn fine photograph. Something along the lines
of holding a picture up side down and see how it looks in both directions I
believe for composition quality. If it does, then it to is a strong

But I strongly opt for this farm scene in colour. Separate them and they
both are fine pictures.
