Opinions on this image?

Hey all,

I posted this on FB... I was going to trash this image, but I couldn't quite bring myself to do it because I love the way the stamen are in such sharp focus. So I did quite a bit of editing and came up with something I like. On FB some people gave me some nice comments as a result, but then I did a bit MORE editing and I'm wondering which of the three you guys like best.

1.
Columbine

2. with texture added

I just love these Tracy! I'm having a hard time picking a favorite between 1 & 2.

I really love #1. I think it is slightly edging out #2 for me. And I can't believe that the b&w isn't my favorite. I just love the soft colors here. Both color edits are really nice. And the texture really does add a nice effect. But I keep coming back to #1. It just looks natural. And I love it!

I'm with you guys, the more I look... I like #1 best too. Just very natural and pure. I just wondered if the tones were too muted or if it just didn't work at all or ?????? Sometimes it's hard to know when you're subjectively viewing things!

I would choose #1 as well. I usually prefer b&w everything, but not for this one. Lovely!

I don't usually do floral B&W's, but this one seemed to work with colour and B&W. But I prefer it in colour too... but then, I'm a sucker for colour 95% of the time. I love everyone else's B&W conversions, but when I convert my own stuff, I almost always 'miss' the colour.

Thought I had previously commented, but am not seeing anything. The picture is beautiful, my preference is for the second one.
