Mono or Colour?

Manhattan, New York City, USA

Dull picture in colour, I liked the steam rising from the vents but the colours are not in harmony and serve only as a distraction..

But in black and white it just works, its not the best picture I took in New York that week, its not even the best picture I took that morning, but its a good example of an image I might have deleted from the back of the camera, that ended up being worth keeping…(Technical info – Nikon D700 with 70-200mm at F5.6 1/640th Sec ISO500 – B & W conversion in Photoshop CS5)
