    Hi,

    I can't decide which I like better. :scratch: What do you guys think?

    Don't beat yourself up on deciding.

    lol... does that mean the picture isn't worth the time?

    I actually am curious. 30+ views and no one has given their opinion about either one. That tells me everyone must thinks the picture is just so-so, or worse yet, blows!

    I like the color version, the warm tones and the moon in the sky.

    Color version is better... the B&W doesn't really enhance the photograph, at all.

    In the color version, a viewer clearly understand this picture to be a tree silhouette against the colors of a post/pre-dawn sky. When the sky is greyed out in the B&W, that contrast is no longer apparent and the photo really loses all of its appeal.
