    I love the full color version. The colors are so vibrant and clear, it’s almost unreal. If someone said it was a promo picture for the show “Pushing Daisies” I would believe it! So cute!

    I think color is more appropriate for the landscape aspect of the shot.  You lose the ocean altogether in the antiqued one.

    I’m going to join the minority and vote for the vintaged one for the large print (that is, unless you want those bright colors in the room it will go in). It looks more like an art piece to me.

    However, as a photograph, the color is stunning. There are certainly times where a photo calls for color, others b+w — This is a color time. I vote to use the color for your thank you cards and such for sure.

    I actually prefer the vintage one but that’s just where my taste lies, I don’t really go for pics with lots of bright color…Either way, it’s a beautiful picture!!

    I actually like the vintage one better. Looks more artsy. Good for hanging on the wall.

    I like the first picture with color more.  It really brings the two of you out whereas the gray picture doesn’t have as much effect.

    I LOVE the color. The vintage is nice but it looks like an overcast day while in the color it looks like perfect wispy clouds. Does that make sense?

    I like them both, but I’d probably use the color one for this purpose.

    The color one is pretty but almost…”too” bright for me. I’m really a sucker for the desaturated prints, though. I know I’m totally outnumbered; it’s just my preference in photos for what looks best in my house with my color scheme, and that color scheme is always my go-to! Super cute pic by the way!

    Of course I prefer vintage in general, so I picked that, but I think it would look better with a different, maybe more sepia, wash.
