Sitting at home because CV (Corona Virus - I like Corona and I don't like virus) and getting crazy I went for walk this evening taking my Sony with me. I was curious how my cam is doing in really low light and high ISO. I have taken about 20 pictures around my area and here is the first one:



Sony ILCE A7M2 with Sony/Zeiss AF 16-35mm f4 lens at 21mm, f4, s4/10, ISO10000

and here is also BW version:



Sky was de-noised with Topaz De Noise.

Which one you like better?

First of all a nice composition! It gives the feeling of "being there".

I think the weathered textures of the wood and the roof are better in the colour version, but what I don't like is the dark blue/purple shadow in the lower/left quarter. I think that calls for some selective PP to make it more neutral. The B&W version doesn't have this problem but is in general not so "gritty" which doesn't have the same impact as the colour version.

So bottom line, now I like the B&W version better but if you fix the dark blue/purple shadow problem probably the colour one will get my vote.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Taking seriously my Dyxum friends' critics and opinions I did re-do this photo today in a day light. The result is totally different and, I think, way better. Colors are more real. The only thing I don't like is the sky. My post processing knowledge does not let me do better job with it (in a matter of de-noising). Well...

Here they are:
