when to choose black and white?

Photography Beginners' Forum - www.thephotoforum.com
Hi, often I set my camera on black and white while photographing – I think I can see the photo better in the camera screen this way, not sure if it's wrong or it just doesn't affect anything at all. So when I'm editing I often check the photo both ways and I have a hard time deciding each way to go. There is any tips on how can I value those options? My impressions are that I get more sharpness and texture in B&W but I lost some nuances of light.

Example:

There isn't much color in the photo at all, I get much more texture in the B&W one, but I wonder if it isn't more interested to let in colors because it is interesting to look at something almost-naturally in grey tones, and also the yellow-ish tone in the light part brings a bit of warm in contrast of the blue-ish part in the darker areas?
