    You note a polarizer on the first image, but I see glare on the shiny leaves in the lower right corner. Watch for subtle changes in the appearance of plants as you adjust the pol. It can be hard to see through a small viewfinder. Overall there just isn't much going on here.

    On the other hand the next one is pretty exciting. And for a change I'm going with the color photo. Both versions seem monochromatic, but the gold adds warmth and richness that I find appealing. Also the BW seems busy and flat while somehow the gold color helps add depth.

    the first one I am having a bit of trouble understanding what you are trying to capture :scratch:

    have to agree with ksmattfish on the gold one.... the colour added makes it look a bit like a duotone, a nice touch to an interesting shot. very cool indeed 8)

    I'm with those guys. Of the two, I like the color shot better. Interesting catch.
