The mono is very artistic, but the colour has a heart.

Like the ''spikey'' look Jenn.
Go for V2.
Not so much for the colour,
but for more ''spikeyness'' !!

Two great photos, Jenn. Do these grow around your area of Pennsylvania, "out west"?

V1 is a stunning image.. and so beautiful.. words would fail to praise it enough.. there's a sense of harmony and collectiveness and a sense of freedom in togetherness.. and a sense of reaching higher and together through it.. what the whole world should aspire to become..
would look great anywhere.. a cover of a book, on the wall.. anywhere..
great image..

Two great but contrasting images. It is a flower we are familiar with in the UK.

I usually like colour but today the artistry of the mono wins hands down. Smile

V1 for me - aside from the artistic feeling of the mono image, I just think there's more going on Grin

Take my UA for version 1, the beautifully processed, very artistic mono. (Must lie down now to get over the shock!)
