Which version do u like best?
Posted By: Bori, 03-18-2007, 05:46 AM

I finished processing a very nice shoot recently. There's this one picture that I have two versions of, and I can't decide which one I should choose to show in my portfolio.

So, please help me decide which one is more appealing. As you will see the first version is lighter and the second is a bit more contrast, darker shadows. The difference is subtle but as you know can make a difference. Your comments are welcomed.

Very nice colors! On my screen - I see more details on the first version, specially in the center of the flower.

I like the second better one because the subject seems more isolated from the background. Assuming that's the effect you want.

They are both fine shots but, since you asked, I prefer the second, the Bokeh is more pleasant and less distracting.

I like the first one. It's just a touch sharper and a little more pleasant to me.

Thank you all for your responses. I sort of like the contrast more on the second although the first is slightly more sharp and detailed.

Thanks again!
