What Do You Find A-Luring?

I snapped a few pictures of a lonely lost fishing lure sitting on a pylon down by the Connecticut River. These large wooden pylons are each capped with copper or brass that bears the scars of countless bait dissections, fish cleanings, and seagull bombings.

I liked the close-up shots of the red and white lure with its steel leader. But, then I tried processing these into black and white with a green filter setting and I really liked those results, too. Here are two different shots shown in both the color and B&W versions. Do you like one better than the other? In color or B&W?

I like the second photo in B&W. I think the leader wrapping around gives it a little more depth.

There are also some interesting color variations in the second color photo, but I think it would make the photo more interesting if you could bring them out more. Especially that blue in the background.

I find I like the cows of the previous post... Ü

I think I like the first b&w of the fishing lure if I were to choose one.
