Any thoughts on this one - i tried to highlight the road and crush the black to create the contrast. I also added some grain to give it the feel...

I like the track and the rays of sunshine but the trees on the right are just a solid black space. I'm no expert with photoshop but I would try to do some selective work on that area to bring something out.
See some other photos on my flickr page

I prefer the B&W, just need some details pulled out of the shadows as Richard suggested

I personally like the colour version more it just looks much better I don't think B&W suits this image to be honest as you loose the depth of the photo shown in the different colours. Possibly a portrait style would look best to cut off the dead space to the right of the frame and keeping the view focused on the path towards the setting sun.

I prefer the colour version too. B&W takes away from the image totally.
