The B&W dilemma (DSC_2274)

The B&W dilemma:

In B&W it looks like it could have been captured just about any time, which doesn't make it less compelling visually but to me it feels like it has less of a story to tell. Try thinking this for a comparison: In B&W you'd be saying "here's a beautiful scene in Kuala Terengganu with great silhouette, clouds and reflections" whereas in color you'd be saying "on this day I was rewarded with the rare chance to see this beautiful golden sunrise in Kuala Terengganu, illuminated and glowing for but a few moments, the memory of which I will carry with me for the rest of my days".
