This is an inspired treatment of the monorail car emerging from EMP. The B&W choice perfectly emphasizes the metallic aspect of the scene, allowing a viewer to see it more "truthfully," in a way, without having to "see through" the bright, intense colors to grasp the reality of materials. (for those who haven't been there, the EMP is intense purplish-gold iridescent stainless steel, which towers and overwhelms an observer in the plaza.)

Thanks so much Zin. It's real easy to be swayed by the intense colors of this building but I found that in this image it actually distracted from the image where my focus was on the monorail and the children inside as well as the overall shapes and lines. I have taken this shot several times before but never could capture it right. I was much happier this time. It reinforces the idea of going back and reshooting the same places in order to improve your shots and explore new ideas.
