    + on the B&W. Thanks for posting. Sent me off on a Wikipedia expedition. That is quite a bridge and quite a gorge for such an urban area.

    Thanks ChiDN. Bristol imo is one of the best kept secrets of Europe. Not overrun with tourists but has it all ie history, culture, food, nightlife, sights. As an American expat I am spoiled as I have Bristol and London on my doorstep. Both very photogenic cities!

    Color.

    The monochrome does emphasize the structure of the bridge better, so if this is a photo of a bridge, the b&w is the better photo. It says "This is a bridge on a cloudy day."

    However, the lovely warmth of the light is lost in monochrome. The subtle color tones of the trees and clouds provide more context for the bridge, and makes a better landscape. The color photo says "This is a landscape that includes a bridge and some trees and it was a fine sunny day, and wouldn't you like to be here?"

    Made a series of tourist trips to the UK '95, '96, '97 & '02 but didn't make it Bristol and so many other places. Age and a tremendous reluctance to fly in this era means I likely won't get back. If you can't easily tromp all over the place then the UK is not nearly so inviting. True of most places that is though and I can't quite tromp like I used to.

    I could easily accept this POV as well. It was close run for my preference and runswithsizzers may have convinced me.

    My daughter (9+ years) and I (53) somehow are no longer fans of black and white. We both love the colour version! :)
