The River Rushes

The River Rushes - Leica M9, 28 Elmarit ASPH, ~f/22, 1.5s, ISO 160
Well actually its more a stream, but "river rushes" sounds better.  I made this image earlier this summer when rushing water all over the Sierras was an easy sight to catch (due to the record snowfall this past winter).
The River Rushes (B&W) - Canon 5D2, 24 TS-E II, f/11, 2s, ISO 100
I ended up processing two different versions of this image, made with two different cameras.  I really liked the colors in the color one at the top (especially the color in the foliage) but I liked the vertical composition and tones of the B&W one above as well.  If you recall I posted an early version of this image back this summer when talking about using the Leica M9.  I chose to make the Canon image B&W because I just couldn't the colors to look right.

Its interesting, the sRGB JPG version doesn't do the colors justice, its much nicer in print as it is when viewing the original ProPhotoRGB file on my wide gamut display.

So which do you prefer the vertical B&W or the horizontal color image?
