    then
    Colour

    But any would suit me, although I'm not a fan of graffiti, (on her arm)

    You could try with small "boxing gloves" as a "fun" shot - but maybe that is my mischievous mind

    Nice picture, and interesting blog!

    I agree with Bill, I too prefer the B&W version...

    I seem to like the B&W and mixed versions about equally - couldn't pick one over the other. The full color version is my least favorite, but its not that I DON'T like it! Just don't like it as much as the other two.

    Definitely 2. The first one is terrible (sorry) and the 3rd one just looks like a typical desaturated Photoshop image. The second one is cool though:) make it a bit less perfect and it's awesome:)

    Color first, though it's a bit too much color, even for me, and I'm known for liking brights. That said, it's very much in a classic illustration style, which color seems to suit best. Second favorite would be the mix, same reason.
     
  9. So far that day by midnight Montreal time the Blog got <strong><span style="color:#990000;">842 unique visitors</span></strong>.

    From this crowd in total I got <strong><span style="color:#990000;">281 messages</span></strong> giving me their choices. Many people preferred to write their opinion in private e-mails. I noticed there is a fear out there for getting spammed by Spammers when you become public with your e-mails. This being said, at Blogspot (my Blog provider) lets you post in few ways. If you have a web site, or a member of Blogspot or few other such organisations, or you post under a name without any web referral, or anonymous. In eigther way, you can't post your e-mail at my Blog and make it public. You are safe in that way.

    <span style="color:#990000;"><strong>109 people preferred the MIX.
    57 people liked B&amp;W
    15 people liked COLOR

    </strong></span>Majority of the opinions were expressed the day of the Blog. I have gotten very few answers few days after the Blog post.

    I had to print out the names and cut them out. (except one Anonymous without a name) Put it in a basket and pulled out one name.

    The winner is: <strong><em><span style="color:#990000;">Vidar from Norway. His choice was Black &amp; White.

    </span></em></strong>I will mail the limited edition matted print as soon as I get his mailing address.

    Congratulations Vidar.
