Very subjective question to ask :-) For me, I prefer the first one, in full colour, as it looks more natural to see insects like that to me. But I have been known to be wrong, just ask my ex wife.

I favor the color version. I think selective color works better with inanimate objects.

Thanks . Of coarse I do not think it is natural to see anything with selective coloring. I am also known to be wrong and you can ask my ex wife as well:)

Thanks Rab and Brian, I also prefer the color version but I think it needs a little work.

Another vote for the colour version, I haven't seen many mono wildlife macros that I have preferred over the colour version to be honest. Nice capture though ;)
