Colour or B&W?

For some reason, most Fine Art Photos are presented in B&W. I always shoot  in colour, but sometimes I convert images to B&W when I edit them. I usually prefer the colour versions, but sometimes an image works well in B&W.  B&W isn’t just the absence of colour though and getting the right “tones” can be harder than editing a colour photo.

Who decides what is art anyway? The artist? The art critic? The spectator?

This is a shot of a car park exit. I take pictures every time I’m there.  I haven’t got a good one yet,  but I think I’m getting closer.
