Needlework and Seedlings

I had.. the hardest time ever choosing between this version and the black and white version. I love them both so much. I even asked my friends and fellow photographers, Gillyface, Sarah Ann Loreth, Brad Wagner, Evan Walsh, Molly Strohl, Chelsea Roden and even my boyfriend (who isn't a photographer but I heed his counsel anyway.. wow I've been watching far too much Game Of Thrones...) but in the end the votes were tie. That is, unless you count Molly's vote, which counted for 20 votes but I decided to give the others a fair chance. haha. so I had to make a decision.


As much as I would've liked to post the black and white because I love it and I don't post black and whites much in my stream I just had to go with this one. Although, I will be posting both versions on my 500px page so you can all see them in all their glory. haha. okay, so maybe they aren't that glorious of a photo but I like them. I honestly didn't think this photo was going to turn out at all... (which I say about most of my photos) and i hated it through most of the editing process.


Sometimes things just work out. (:

    Hmmm hard choice indeed.. I do like that in the colored version you can see that your eyes match the green tones of the leaves!
    ...Though the contrast in the b&w version is gorgeous as well...

    I was a bit late to the conversation on the Flickr group, so I never voted.. but I really do adore the colour version. I love the natural, earthy colours. Also, your eyes are really, incredibly, my god.
