Erawan Shrine – black and white or color?

One of the dilemmas photographers face is black and white or color?   In colorful locales such as the Erawan Shrine in Bangkok, the vividness of the colors is hard to ignore.  There is a richness that is best conveyed in color.  However, black and white can work provided your composition,  imagery, and richness of detail are compelling.

Photos were taken with a Leica M8 and either a Summicron 90mm f/2 or a Noctilux 50mm f/1 lens.
