My daughter is doing a photography project for 4-H.  Out of about 100 photos she has taken in the last few months we have to choose one to enlarge and frame.  We have narrowed it down to these two.  I would appreciate any advice you could give me on which one is better.  I know what one I would choose, but she disagrees.  Which one do you think is more artistically correct (not just which one is prettier)? Thanks in advance!







Edited to add more photos.  Here is the house in b&w and sepia.

Well in my humble opinion the Butterfly and Flower is prettier, but I thing the house is more artistic. Maybe try it in Sepia or B/W. That would make it super fantastic! Not that they aren't already!!!!

My sister did 4H too, and entered a bunch of photos for the fair! I should get her to join and give her feedback!

I'm not a photography pro, but I do know 4-H and I know photography judges are very particular.  I think they are both nice pictures, but I think the butterfly is a tiny bit overlit.  It could just be my computer screen.

I never thought of doing the house in b&W or sepia!  We will have to try that.

Yes, I thought the butterfly one is over lit too. 

Thanks for your help!

I have no experience with 4-H but I have studied photography a bit. I would go with the house too. Something about the framing of the butterfly doesn't sit right with me. The house draws me in much more because it seems more balanced within the frame.

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

I think I would go with the house and use the black and white photography, although since it has been photoshopped the judges may feel differently about it.

I just like the look of the B&W.  Nice photos.

The house. I like it in Black and white but, I think that it should be the original cause my friend didn't get good marks for turning an altered photo for 4h when i was in HS but, then again I graduated about 10 years ago.

the sepia takes away from the eeriness of the house, the black and white adds more depth and foreboding qualities

My favorite is still the house in color. The b/w looks nice too, but I feel like it doesn't have as much depth, especially in the sky.
