The original shot was glum in itself with all the rain. I was tempted to keep these bright patches of colour.

I think it's great to have a taxi stand that is sheltered from the elements. Love the second shot.

Yes, the dash of color is really cool, though the 1st pic is nice too.

Much better than running out into the street, waving down a cab and dodging traffic!!!!

I definitely agree with Hildred.
Much better than waving frantically for a Taxi.

When I visited China a few years ago Xi'an was my favorite city. I like both your photos - each elicits a different mood.

Wonderful patches of colour, but do like the atmosphere created in the black and white version.
