Two versions of the same shot, one with color, one without, because I'm not sure which works better. I had a hard time shooting at Fallingwater. I don't know if it was because the site was so overpowering to me that I didn't know how to capture it or if it was just that the conditions - the overabundance of green, the low light, the museum's anti-photography* policy - that made my shots feel flat.
Which works better? The color shot or the b&w?

*Fallingwater allows outdoor photos but not indoor photos. The one exception is an 8:30 am tour of the site, on which you can take indoor photos, that costs $50 per person. That's a little harsh. Nonetheless, while the museum has a bit of an anti-photo policy, the tour guides at Fallingwater are wonderful. Ours was a knowledgeable local artist who tolerated every question (down to my "was this [Bach] score really owned by the residents or is this a placement piece?").
