Help me out please
No it's not sepia, it's actually a B&W conversion with split toning.

Why would you make a Scottish scene with BLUE sky into B+W?

Hey I like this effect. Great shot! You might have caught me in hear if you took it in July!?
I like the split tone look, I've started experimenting with it. Are you using Lightroom?

The colour picture is nice but the duo-tone version is even nicer. The latter reminds of some old English detective TV series when I was a kid.

Whole different feel here. Vivid colors are striking and the blue sky reflects off the street makes an attractive stilly but I think the red phone booths to the right of frame distract a bit from where my eyeballs naturally want to gravitate towards the spire and the vanishing point. Interesting shot no doubt. I'll go with the b&w as the preferred choice though. Great job.

Yes Lightroom CC for 90% of stuff, but PS CC 2015 for the heavy lifting.
