I definitely like the color one better. I think the tones in the picture are too close in brightness to make an effective B&W. I've been wanting to do an interesting mirror shot for a while and this one is really nice. Thanks for sharing it.

The image is not bad per se and has a notalgic quality to it. But the elements within the mirror are too close together to be visually pleasing. Why not try one with a wider view that includes the side of the truck and a view that will separate the elements better. I know, not always possible, easier said than done.
