A colour frame of the eights and their shadows.
I think I prefer the one in B & W where the color does not come to disturb the reading of the forms.

A good one too, but I prefer the BW version for a more graphic perspective !

although this is nice, I scrolled back to the B/W, which I think works better. The impact of the pattern is emphasised more in the B/W treatment, as there is no distraction to the eye from the colour of the foliage and grass.

@grouser: Thanks for the feedback, mister g, and for the record I prefer the black and white version as well, but in taking a few colour frames it was that very reflection of foliage colour on the eights that was my impetus. The world "as is" and the world "aesthetically preferred" is a constant fulcrum that I love about photography :)
I like the pattern of the shadows.

Je préfère la photo en noir et blanc !!! Plus d'impact visuel !

I like this composition better as it reveals more shadows to complement the forms above!!

@Steven: I like the varying opinions that we often see when monochrome and colour are offered as views of the same scene. I prefer black and white for graphism due to its way of showing an alternate version of perspective, contrast, form itself... but the vast majority of us SEE in colour and it is important to view the world and the things in it, with colour also getting its fare share of "the stage" so to speak. This frame depicts an entirely different viewing angle, looking toward the South rather than the North of the previous black and white shot, and depicts the visual reality of what this art installation looks like and how it interacts with its public space. My thanks, Steven !
I agree it would look better in B&W as there isn't much color, but the inclusion of more shadows to complement the art above is what won me over. :-)

@Steven: I had a third frame to include in the series that shows only the shadows, but thought too many eights would become crazy eights. Thanks.
Great POW... i love it!

A beautiful photo of this intriguing structure.

Horizontal 8s: please Rick, a 3rd shot looking east or west! 8s - without modifing their inner nature - will be seen as the infinite symbol !
infinite as the words we can glue to any image we look at, loosing perhaps another occasion of peace :-)

The B&W version works better for me.
