    I am going to be giving this picture as an 8x10 to my Father in Law, and can't decide which PS treatment I like best. I know they're not TOO different, but enough to give me greif. :lol:

    Tech Info: Shot on Canon Elan7, Fuji Sensia ISO400 Slide film, Scanned from a print. I can't remember the other stats, Sorry!

    i like both, but the second one probably more because it isnt so BAM! as the first one is, that bright yellow really pulls my eye away from the rest of the image, which is a shame, because the rest of the image is what makes it (the ducks and bridge)

    I think the second one too. I like the clouds better in that one. Great job. Your father in law is going to love it!

    They are both great. Why don't you give him both, one for home and one for the office.

    I like the second one personally, The softness suits the mood created by the photo.

    I like the first one. For some reason I don;t like the lines in the second one.

    I like the second one - I think the muted look draws more interest (for me, anyway)

    Another vote for the first one :thumbsup: the texture on the 2nd is just enough to be distracting

    I think the first one. For me, the texture in the sky on the second is too much.

    oh i didnt even notice the texture in the second before. can i change my mind? :D

    sillyphaunt: i would suggest darkening the bright yellow on the left of the first image to tone it down a bit and then use that one, because the colors are better, it's just that light is distracting i think.
