Photo redux 1

I'm taking some time to revisit some photos I've posted here in the past. One reason is to bring back memories of places I've been. The other is to see whether I still like the photos as they were presented back then. Those that I think can be improved upon through further post-processing will be featured here in the next few days. I'll include links to the previous version. You can tell me which one you like better, and why.

Above, the early morning sunlight falls on the Bodie Island lighthouse on North Carolina's outer banks. The lighthouse sits on a high point surrounded by marshes. A boardwalk takes visitors through the marsh, where birds and water-loving creatures are abundant. The previous photo was posted in back and white, primarily because I was experimenting with black and white at the time, but also because I wasn't totally happy with the color version.

Whaddaya think?

I like this new version better. I think the B&W more somber and the mood of the color is more to my liking.

Your work is very good. Your color tones are superb. I looked at the link to your original photo and I like both. They simply reflect different moods.
