Just some thoughts:
The choice: colour or black and white? | PauloBizarroPHOTOBLOG
Between THESE two, I'd go with the B&W version only because I don't like the little too saturated colors on the color version. Just personal preference
Now, if you'd changed the edit (satuarion) on the color version (and the shadow on the foreground is a little distracting), I'd prefer the color version - that's just me, I prefer color LEs
The B&W has nice texture on the cliffs!
Edit: sorry if I misunderstood and this thread isn't about asking for opinions - in that case, never mind me
I prefer the color one. Love the contrast between the yellowish rocks and the blue sea.
B&W for me...the whole scene seems to do well in B&W, particularly the sky...it seems better represented in B&W than color, draws my view right in, etc.
By all means Nick, comments are always welcomed
Color. I like the textures in the b&w, but the color contrast between the land and sea adds an additional dimension that's missing in the b&w for me. Now, had I only seen the b&w...
B&W much more dramatic
They both stand on their own, to me. But if I *had* to choose?...
At first I thought I preferred the b&w, but the more I look, I find I really enjoy the colors so I will vote for that one.
Color is super!
While the B&W is indeed good here, for me the color version is more... vibrant. The blue and white in the sky and the sea, along with the radiance of the sun ( I presume) on the rock cliffs really stands out in color.

The B&W seems more dramatic and other-wordly and ready to go. If I were to present the color version, I'd want to tinker around some more in Photoshop. (Tint & burn in the sky, maybe dodge & warm up the sunlit rocks a bit more and burn in & cool down the ocean?)
B&W for me as well, more drama.
B&W. Although, I would darken the sky just a little.
Just a thought which I will throw in for "discussion"
If Ansell Adams was alive today would he shoot B&W or Colour?
B&W, maybe because it's a LE. The composition is punched up more. Very dramatic.
The color version is excellent, but personally prefer to highlight the colors a bit. But I can see what David pointed out....the B&W gives the impression of two entities...color is three.
He dabbled in color earlier than most, but seemed to stick largely with B&W.
It would be fun to see how he would react to the current state of hardware & software. I suspect he would have an absolute ball with it (he was no technophobe).
Both versions are top shots !
My thoughts exactly Jeff. I recently saw and interview where his son took a journalist through Adams' Darkroom and showed the equipment he used. Adams, even in those days was very innovative and so yes, I think he would embrace today's technology wholeheartedly.
