DEFINITELY the second one! I LOVE LOVE the vibrant green against that hot pink. LOVE.

I like the 1st. I like how you can see the flower through the water Smile

And thus you see my dilemma! I love the color and composition of the first one, but the flowers in the drops are so tiny. The first one I love how I got the flower in the droplet big and sharp...but the photo as a whole is a touch messy composition wise.

Definitely a TOUGH choice. I love them both, but I'm voting for the one with the hot pink... Just like the composition better. But I do LOVE the tiny, crisp flowers in the droplets in the first. I think it's just the large shadow (ETA: I think that's a shadow?) in the bottom right of the image that makes me shy away from voting for that one.

Yeah the flower in the water droplet of number 1 is definitely super cool...but the second shot is so awesome it wins out for me in the end. JMO! Smile

Yeah...that leaf on the left hand side is making the shadow on the right hand side. I hate that shadow too. I should have ripped that leaf right off!

Both are amazing! I say #2 though, the comp is just way better. But...have you tried a different crop for #1, like maybe just the flower and the drop? IDK if it would be even more awkward, but it might be worth a try?

Love 1B! I really like the change in the crop. I would have said #2 but I'm loving the new crop.
