1. Oh, gorgeous, Peggy.

I canít decide which version I like better, the color or the B&W. Each one has its own unique interesting qualities. Maybe I lean a bit toward the bright yellow. Itís bright and cheery.

2. Thanks so much, my dear Ohiogal!

I love these flowers and I just spotted this one today. It's late in the season for these, but it still happens!

So I wanted to do something different. And this is what I decided!

I like 'em both too, for different reasons. The yellow is bright and cheery, but the b&w shows off the details a bit better, I think.

3. Peggy you have outdone yourself!

Both versions are exquisite and it's hard to choose a favorite of the two. That said the subtlety of the black and white treatment is exceptional.

4. Oh my goodness, my dear flamin lib!

I'm thrilled that you like these so much. Your words carry a lot of weight with me!

Your thoughts about the B&W are especially appreciated. I did think a bit before I did the post-processing. I was very pleased with how it turned out.

Thank you again!

5. Nicely done.

I prefer the B&W.

No, the full color.

But then again, the B&W draws attention to the detail without the distraction of the bright yellow.

Oh, the vibrancy of the yellow really grabs me.

This is worse than trying to pick a winner in the monthly contest.

I recuse myself

6. Wow, thank you so much, my dear MichaelSoE!

You made me smile!

I feel your dilemma and I understand it.

No need to recuse yourself! Enjoy them both for their individual qualities, which I think is what you're doing!
