New PF Style- Which color should be default?

Our new style comes in three colors, as before. Which of the three looks best, and should be used as the default color scheme?

In order to avoid bias, I am not including screenshots or listing the colors here. Please click the links to preview each color. IE 6-8 users- please don't vote, as you'll just see the old green style. Update your browser to version 9 instead, if possible.

Color 1

Color 2

Color 3

Whatever color is chosen as the DEFAULT, each member will still be able to pick from the other new skins or even the older classic themes if they prefer. Members with older browsers which do not support the new skins will simply default to one of the classic themes (or to whichever one they have set).

This is pretty easy. Regardless of personal preference, the default should be that which most people will be familiar and comfortable with. Since the recommended web link default colour is blue, the blue scheme should be the standard.

Red.

Whatever colour is chosen I hope it is used for the rather ugly black section at the top of the page as well.

The new design looks great with all three colors! Good work! My favorite color of the three choices is #2.

Mine does as well but if you click on each color it will open a new tab in that color. I've had mine set to red by default since I joined. There is something about the green that just bugs me.

Vote Color 2! RED

Green #3

I tink the GREEN looks the classiest and the softest of the 3 choices, although the red and black correspond to the Pentax color scheme.

#1 and #3 are both nice, in that order. #2 not as much.

Of the ones presented, I prefer the blue. I would actually love to see something with a black background, as that is so much easier on the eyes. I know you guys may think that is too derivative of the other guys, but hey, they had to do something right, right?
