Color vs B&W

Rock mixture close to Camilo Beach, Lagos

For today post, here is a color vs B&W comparison of an image taken during our last holiday in Lagos, Portugal. The image represents a nice geological mixture of rocks, with different colors and patterns, culminating with the cliffs that define Camilo Beach of Lagos and its beautiful blue water.
The color version is an HDR. The 3 exposures have been blended together in Photomatix, extra contrast and selective details being achieved in Color Efex Pro, with final tweaks in Photoshop.
The B&W version is one exposure only, using Silver Efex Pro for monochrome conversion, contrast and details in the rock structures. Again Photoshop was used for final fine tuning.

So which one do you like more?
