  1. Usually I’m all for colour, but I’m kind of digging the black and white one a bit more

    1. This one has been so close! If my vote counts, then the b&w is behind by just one. ONE! Usually, color is a lot further ahead. 😁

  2. In this instance the gold.

    1. Whoa, it is a battle to the end! Color and black & white are tied, I think. 😊

  3. Think I like the warmth of the color.

    1. Ah, yes! The color positively has more warmth to it. 😊

  4. Both have merit, but I love this exquisite piece of art in full color. πŸ™‚

    1. I can see why. Maybe art is best left untouched. πŸ€”

      1. Art is always open to interpretation, as they say, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” πŸ™‚

        1. So true about any art form.

  5. Black and white

    1. It is my choice too. Thanks for your comment. 😊

  6. What I fine work(Arbeit)! A wonderful art-work(Kunstwerk)!

    1. Absolutely, the detail is magnificent. 😊

      1. Yes, the detail and all details together. It looks like a paradise-bird (Paradies-Vogel) or a “Pfau”(german).

        1. You are absolutely right. It is a Pfau. Great eyes you have. Is a Paradies vogel also a flower? There is a beautiful flower called Bird of Paradise that I love. 😊

          1. Dies ist ein Vogel🦜And such beautiful birds live in the Dschungel, in warm countries.

          2. There is a butterfly, too, which is called “Pfauenauge”.
            πŸ¦ƒπŸ¦šHere You see a “Puter”(Truthahn) and a “Pfau”.
            πŸ¦‹The butterfly has great eyes painted on the wings, and so has the “Pfau” wonderful eyes painted on his wife (Schwanzfedern).πŸ‘οΈ
            Perhaps I know the flowers called paradise-flower?

            1. I’ve never heard of a Paradise Butterfly. I will look for them the next time I visit a Butterfly House. Hopefully I can get a picture of one. I think I have a photo of a Bird of Paradise flower. I will look. 😊

              1. Oh No, that was my mistake. I meant “das Pfauenauge”.

                1. No problem. πŸ˜‰

                  1. β˜ΊοΈπŸ™‹

              2. Thank You very much.☺️

  7. This time I would prefer color, but black and white ist beautiful, too.

    1. Danke! (Is that right for thank you?) Have a wonderful day, Gisela. 😊

      1. “Danke” ist right for “thank you”☺️

  8. I love the first one.

    1. The doors have captured a whole lot of attention in the original golden color over the years. THanks for you input. 😊

  9. Black & white again

    1. I am leaning toward the b&w this time too. 😊

Words can brighten the grayest of days.
