I don't  know why, but for me, somewhere warm and tropical is always a colour vision.  Black and white makes me think cold and windswept.  If that tree was battling raging storm under a heavy clouded sky, I'd accept the black and white, but a sunny beach......😕.  I guess it must be something about the places I experienced as I grew up.  Do others see things the same way?

 

appart from that, I do like the composition.

The B&W treatment suits me just fine.

 

Aguinaldo , is the tree the first of a new mangrove like tree population that is expanding towards the sea or is a remanent of many more trees that have long since disappeared?

B&W vs color is a matter of taste in my opinion.

I always prefer the monochromes because I think they are more artistic and we are not distracted by the colors.

The photographers I admire most shoot in B&W.

Since this place is close to a river delta, the shore may be in constant change so I think the case here is the second option.
