OK, the sepia is nice, but as a model train enthusiast, I like the color best....nice contrast between the black and red.

Sepia without a doubt.

It is a "nice" shot of a train in colour. In sepia is jumps right up to "fantastic" :)

I also am partial to the sepia. A wonderful shot, congrats!!

I'm going to play devils advocate and opt for the colour version, yes the sepia version does have an old world feel. But it seems such a shame to duo-tone an image that has such vivid contrasting colours.

I also like the sepia better because the bright colors tend to distract from the subject, but in the sepia the subject becomes the center of attention

I like the sepia better, because it seems suitable for the old train in its "natural" setting; as if the photo was taken when such trains were really "active." A photo of the same old train in a city park with kids playing on it would probably look better in color.

You captured terrific colors in that photo - but I'm partial to the sepia. Seems more realistic for your subject. Very nice work!! :-)

I really like the sepia, too. It's very nice.

I agree with magnetic totally ...

They didnt have color photography in the old days so having it in color ruins the whole feel to it

i think i like the sepia better

it goes well with the old timey feel of the train and helps accentuate the lighting.
