    My personal preference is the first one...colors seem more natural.
    2nd B&W a good shot, just too cold for my tastes.
    3rd one the sun's light almost seems to have a light greenish cast in the yellow.
    But again, that's just me / what I see on my monitor

    Thanks. Really can't choose. Agree the first is the most natural.

    Iz this is going to be tough because it's not as simple as good or bad. They are all good.

    #1 is the most natural but it's cold
    #2 B&W is always a good choice for architecture shots because it highlights the lines
    #3 warming looks unnatural, but it certainly adds drama and has HDR feel.

    It really boils down to what you are trying to present or what you like. If I had to choose, I would go with 2 for the typical reasons. Architecture presentation is about lines and composition. The B&W gets the viewer to look at those elements and not some color they may be "attracted to" or "distracted to".

    Wonderful frames Yannis!

    I'm torn between #1 & 3...if there was a medium between them two...would be perfect.
    #2 looks awesome in B&W, but loses a bit of depth of the sky...flat.

    Either choice is a good one!

    True for the sky. Finally went for (posted) the B&W one. Gary's arguments convinced me although I will keep a colored version and try further processing.
    Thanks guys.

    Same, No. 1 edged out No. 2 for my preferences. There wasn't enough contrast in the B/W, and detail would be lost if one punched it up.
    The colors of the first are fitting. Should be steely cold, bluish, silver for accentuating architectural subjects.
    No. 3 has a greenish hue that registers as off.

    BTW, lovely shot.
