Circus below Arc de Triomphe

Taken while standing on the top of the Arc de Triomphe, looking down at the traffic negotiating the circus at the center of Paris' street layout.
It is raining and twilight, so most things have their lights on and there is a wonderful glare off the cobblestone streets.
The cars are in motion at different rates, some stopped at a signal, and it almost looks like a dance in the rain.
I find the colors to be amazing, but I'm torn between this version and B&W. In this shot, the cars, buildings, and streetlights take the focus. In B&W, the radial rows of trees, and the patterns in the cobblestones draw the eye more.
You can choose which to get when it's in the cart.
