Colour or Balck and White

I was raised on printing my own black and white prints (my photographer hero was Ansel Adams) and have always loved a good black and white print with great tones. When I went digital, things started to change and now I absolutely love colour. I like the subtle colour look but really love punching my colours when I can. Here is a sample of an image that I just love in colour but today decided to convert it to black and white and I love how that looks too :) I have this image as a 4 foot x 6 foot metal image on my walls in my house in colour. I just enabled my comments for this post and would love to hear any thoughts you may have on this :)
