The Editing Conundrum.....,

These are Sweet Peas. They grow at the corners of my drive, and originated as stock from my grandmother almost fifty years ago.

Often I will make multiple exposures of the same subject, then select the best during the editing process. These two are of the same blossoms and were done within one minute of each other. The only technical difference is 1/2 stop in exposure. I've sized them similarly, and they were edited similarly. One is a more accurate color rendition. The other I find somewhat more pleasing to the eye.





Which do you prefer, and why?
