I think monochrome. With all that primer showing, she looks too much like the Sea Tiger in Operation Petticoat.

I agree with the choice, so camouflaged you notice much less the state of disarmament, and perhaps less reminiscent of 'the Sea Tiger' in Operation Petticoat.

The monochrome looks good, but I quite like the colour shot. To me it gives a sense of where it is at in the journey.
I would have tried to crop out the car park and get rid of the yellow piers. They're distracting to me.
Fantastic subject to try and capture.

I prefer color for the details in the ship. In my opinion some clouds would make be work better. Cheers

I like the reworked black and white, with the color more as a photojournalistic style of shot. You say RIP, ids she going to the scrapper soon?

Sadly yes.
This was the original JFK , and was replaced. CV67 was going to be donated, but now appears that no one had the $$$.

From Wikipedia

After nearly 40 years of service in the United States Navy, John F. Kennedy was officially decommissioned on 1 August 2007. She is berthed at the NAVSEA Inactive Ships On-site Maintenance facility in Philadelphia and, until late 2017, was available for donation as a museum and memorial to a qualified organization.[1][7] In late 2017, the Navy revoked her "donation hold" status and designated her for dismantling.[4] The name has been adopted by the future Gerald R. Ford-class aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy (CVN-79).


Hang up and DRIVE!

I agree, the Black and White treatment is a little better.

I like the colour shot, if only because it shows the state of the ship like GLM said.

The reworked B/W is much better than the first, however, and does transmit the sense of disrepair... but now I'd like to see that one in colour too

One little thing of the reworked image is that the area around the ship's aft has a small white halo - maybe overly aggressive contrast enhancement/dehaze tool? It's possible that it's just the ambient light.

It was my first thought as well.

Yes, I think it is flat and clinical in the original monochrome as well, I would add some film grain effects.
