So I did some macro work on a cherimoya (they look so fascinating). I have a bunch of shots, but I also treated the same (or similar) framing differently, either from a processing or lighting perspective.

I'm curious as to what you think works best.

Thanks,

For me #1 and 2 are strongest. 3 has less shadow detail. Alien landscapes for sure! WELL DONE!

How funny, I hadn't even noticed the deep shadows especially in the bottom right. I may reprocess to pull some detail out of there, because I do like the harder shadows that make things look like stingrays in this shot, but that corner is a bit dark, isn't it. Thanks for the feedback.

1 and 2. #2 is the most abstract art, #1 is more realistic and compelling but could use a bit more contrast and detail to pop. Both are very nice.

My preference is for #1. B&W seems the best suited for the photo. I find it more dramatic and interesting.
