I used a Blue Filter on the “Dark One” and a Red Filter on the “Light One”.

    The dark one in my view is more 'gritty'  and shows more detail....

    Light One

    Changes the eye definition.
    If I can see you, I can reach out and touch you.

    Henna's done as of 1230. That means at 1830 I can wash it out of my hair. The price we pay for beauty... ;)
    Are you going to share a picture of you with the goo plastered on your dear head?    I used to henna.  Wonderful stuff.

    One should NEVER share pictures of one's beauty treatments! Spoils the mystique...

    How true.

    I'm a fan of the Dark one.

    I went with the dark one. The light one looks too washed out for me

    Dark one, draws me in to study the detail and then surprises me with the eye.

    Voted dark, but the light is growing on me.

    I think dark better says "This is a manual on how to do camouflage".

    I think light better says "We're selling tactical products.  This photo makes you want to buy things"

    Comes down to what you're trying to say with it.

    I can see the dark one better.

    I've seen some spectacular things done with b&w pics. Should be a great canvas for your obvious talents.

    The dark one does not cause eye strain.

    Dark, but they both look like "Creature From The Black Lagoon."

    The dark one. 👍
    The light one had me reaching for the gamma correction and HMS buttons.
    Besides, the dark one reminds me of Swamp Thing. Adrienne Barbeau looks good in that movie 🍿

    I'm guessing it's bath time in the Shire. 😁

    I like the dark one better. Much higher detail than the light one.

    IMO, the real main difference between the two is depth of field.  The subject of the photo can be either the man or the mission. Both show the man in good detail and is a good photo by any criteria. The 1st indicates mission, since many salient details of both foreground and background are in good detail. The 2nd almost forces you to focus on the man only.

    To me, the first says "this is the mission". The 2nd says "this is the man".

    Depends on what feeling you want to convey. Depth of field can make or break a photo.

    I like the reflection in the water with the dark one, balances the picture better.
