Depends!

I prefer the mono version. However:
- In the mono version I didn't notice the spire in the background.
- In the mono version I didn't notice the bright pink title.

I think they are two reasons I prefer the mono version, but also, I enjoy the patterns more.

If the title is important to you, I'd stay in colour. I think colour popping the title on a mono image (which could be a solution) would be tacky, but YMMMV.

I too think that popping the pink title in a mono presentation would be a bit naff; however in a colour image it maybe needs enhancement.
Incidentally, I told the missus I’d arranged for the lettering specifically for our wedding anniversary, but I don’t think she believed me. Even though this was from our bedroom window!

Colour for me too, in the B&W the building in the back ground is being blended in.

I like both, but if I had to pick one it would be the mono. As I like the shadows more plus I spotted the church spire so for me it`s the better image.
