Colour or Black and White?

Following an attempted murder of my good self whereby I was dragged out of my cozy studio and once loaded up with approx. 30kg of gear made to walk up the hill of doom, ok, in reality we were checking out potential locations for upcoming courses and my good friend John, being the outdoor type, has a better understanding of these things.

Anyway, we ended up at our second location and put the cameras to further use and here’s an image that I got, usually the choice of to process in colour or black and white is clear (and certainly in this case I was using an ND filter that I was aware suffers from colour issues so monochrome was in my mind) but here the image works both ways, so I guess the preference for Colour or Black and White is purely subjective
