Colour vs Black and White photography

One recent subject was photographed both in black and white (with an SLR camera) and in colour (with a digital camera).
I think that showing them next to each other highlights the strengths and weaknesses of the two different mediums.
Here are some more black and white photography images to feast your eyes uppon.
The black and white photo is moody and the focus is on the subject, shadows and composition.
(28-80mm, Canon EOS5, Ilford 125 FP4)
The colour photo more impresses with its range of colours and nuances.
(~35mm, Sony DSC-FX77)
Due to the low resolution, I don’t think the example highlights differences in digital format vs. 35mm film.
