if you take the two images in this post, layer a flat version of the b/w over the color image, then set that layer's blending mode to luminosity... then play with the opacity of that layer.. maybe ~50%... you'll get some of the nice texture and modeling/depth that you have in the b/w version but still keep the bold color of the color version. just something to try - you may not like it.
+1 ... I was gonna mention that as a possibility for the color, but figured I'd give it a go once I got my system back up ... which btw, will hopefully be later this evening.
