Dark or Light?

 Most of the time I know pretty well where I want to go with my café art, but occasionally I am at loggerheads with myself. 

That was the case when working on a photoodle from a photo of Jud Shumway performing with his Sawgrass Blues Band at Night Music at Town Center, Peachtree Corners, on July 10, 2021. 

I just couldn't make up my mind whether to go dark or light. There are twenty versions in my folder of this photo manipulation session. I have worked on it, off and on, for several weeks. 

Here are the two finalists, you can decide for yourself which one you like.

  1. Ok Ludwig, since you asked for an opinion, my choice would be the first (dark) version. To me, it shows more detail and therefore is more interesting. Also, the dark background is less distracting than the whiter one for myself.

    1. Hi Beatrice,
      Thank you for sharing your view. The more I look at it the more I agree with you. It also shows the environment, the evening concert, better. Yep, you are right!
