Seeking Your Opinion on my Photography Through the Fence Experiment...

In my Sustain series, I always include a bit of the urban environment to convey the urban agriculture/ sustainable living concept of the work.  Last week I tried shooting through the fence for the first time. My intention is to use this image to make a mixed media digital tintype, but I also like it in color.  What do you think of the resulting composition?  Do you like it in color or do you think you would prefer it in black and white? (The black and white version is reversed in order to prepare for the transfer process, which will bring it back to the right reading orientation.) Please comment with your thoughts, thanks!
