I'd vote for the color pic in this case...with the Autumn background, you lose a lot of detail in the black and white.

Since the car is the primary focus, I'd pick the black and white picture. The car is alot bolder and pops off the picture. Did you photoshop the yellow lights at the bottom? Looks too identical. I'd get rid of the light glare. Just my opinion.

I think grey scale has it's place ,but because it's fall pic and all ,I would go with the color .I like putting back a certain color for effect sometimes . Here's a pic of my GMC that I got rid of to make room for Blue Bird .
I grey scaled it ,then put back in everything that was originally red

the B&W one is my favorite.

How do you do that "gray-scale"?

the color would be better if there were no glare on the windshield,and facing a different way so you could use the sun,and shadows more
but as it sets, the black,and white are deeper ,and creates a warm feel
