Color / B&W #3

This is one of my “classic” street photos, the cover of my first exhibition and one of the first street photos I ever took, on my first solo trip in 2009. Of course the photo was taken in Paris during a warm May afternoon. The girl in the picture had lost her sunglasses in the Trocadero Fountain, so she went into the water trying to find them (without success). I took this picture while she was wringing her wet dress, immediately after leaving the fountain. I’ve always chosen the bnw version, inspired by Henri Cartier-Bresson’s images, but now I’m not so sure that the one in black and white is the best one. Your thoughts?
