Glad you don't agree as then there's nothing further to learn
I like the cobblestone courtyard in colour, for example .. but that may also be due to the added interest of the activity going on within the scene.
Guess I was forgetting the uber-rule which is of course that there are no rules. Since I'm very familiar with the place it's tempting to think that my optical manglings contain more interest than a more everyday shot. I presume you have never been there and so I can now absolutely see why you may find the colour shot more interesting.

The colour was with a 28 mm lens and the b&w with a 20 mm and lower perspective. Also I waited for some time before getting the scene devoid of people, carts, dogs and stuff. All of which gives a very stark air indeed!

Here's a second one from pretty much the same spot but swung through 180 to point up-market and there are a few very typically Dutch bods in action there

Thanks for feedback.
