    why choose? they are both beautiful. different animals. I like the composition with dark/light, clear/soft with the rich B&W I like the color with the ascending analogous of red, pink and orange with the teal. both good. I guess I’d pick the color if pressed to choose. Could be a fun series- same image in B/W then color. :))

    • Well, I must choose between the two as I’m collecting top images to sell in the fall. (I could use both, but really need to select only one.) It’s a tough decision! Thanks for your input. ;0)

  2. I grapple with this situation sometimes, too. I’ll ask my 10 yr old to give me his opinion.

    Wow they both are rich in their own way. I also love the red, pink, and orange background in the color version. It catches the eye in a serene, secondary way from the interesting potato onion in the forefront. But with the B&W, the onion is the entire focus.

    It’s like they convey two different emotions. Since this will be a fall sell, I’d say the color version.

    • Thanks for your feedback, Jen! I feel the same way. I love the deep contrasting tones of the B&W but also appreciate the multi-coloured BG in the coloured version. Something to think about. Thanks again. 😉
