Please let me know which of the following is your favorite out of the B/W and color orchid photos. I need some opinions and feedback, so feel free to elaborate on why you chose one over another. Thanks in advance for your help!

Feel free to look at the many other orchid photos that I have and nominate another one...it's so hard to choose!

B/W 2: Because it has a nice movement to it, and seems more visually interesting.

B/W 2: Because it encourages the eye to continue moving around the photo.


Comments on other photos:
BW1 - pretty and soft, but the colors may be too muted for a black and white photo. There isn't a lot of contrast going on.
BW3 - high impact, but only on the flower area. The stem area doesn't have anything going on, and the eye gets trapped in the flower area.
Color1 - I like this one, but I felt my eye was trapped in the center of the flower. I think it's a cool effect for a trance-like photo, but not for showcasing a particular flower.
Color3 - I love the color and light in this one. However, the leaf in the foreground is distracting, and the tear in the petal is unfortunate.

You take some really nice pictures!!! I grow orchids at work (we have a long windowsill), and I love seeing pictures of pretty orchids!
