Keep 1 / Ditch the rest

I’d like to try a new experiment.

After “working a scene”, post two or three of your best resulting photos. Commenters please say which ONE photo they would keep, with the rest being ditched.

I’ll go first:

Photo 1:

Photo 2:

Photo 3:

I love this concept!

I prefer photo 2 because 1) it’s cleaner and 2) there is still enough there that catches my eye. Would the flags pop more if this image was in color?

Photo 1 is more appealing to me. I’d ditch 2 & 3.

Photo 1 as well. Ditch 2&3.

I agree with Cindy, Keep 2 🙂

 These were from the 5 yes, 5 no exercise…..

Vickie, I’d keep the first one.  There is more interacting going on between the two women.

@joelandrew I’d keep 3. 1 feels a bit obviously placed, 2 is a bit underexposed and I don’t like the black bar in front of the pig. 3 I like the feeling that it looks like you climbed into an attic and found the scene. I like the angle of the lamp cable complemented by the reflection on what looks like the black bar I didn’t like in 2, and I like the dynamics across the frame from the blooming lamp over to the dark shadowy depths.
