    The blacks and whites are too strong for me. Maybe turning down the contrast a bit would help me like these as well.

    I think the first 2 would make great candidates for a "Touch of Color" where you leave like one or two focal points in color but leave the majority black and white. Sorry if for knowing the technical term but Ive just seen it referred to as TOUCH OF COLOR

    I see what your saying. You do/did see it alot but it does SOMETIMES still make for a cool shot. Especially in some situations where the "straight" B&W doesnt quite work as well.

    I like 1, but I feel as if 2 is slightly too contrasted and 3 is just plain too busy all together. Some separation of color is definitely needed if you're going to shoot something that leads one's eye over the entire photo (as expressed in 3), Just IMO though...

    Thanks all for the feedback. The more I look at 3...the more I think I was trying to make chicken salad out of chicken poo.

    I think of the 3 I agree that 1 is the best.

    Overshapened...perhaps, I may look at softening them.
