Whoaa..bizarre! Very cool photo(s).

I'm going to be a bit different and say that the photo I (would) like best would be a "combination": the central image of the touched up version, but without the background. In other, hopefully clearer, words: a closeup of where the artichokes meet in the center of the plate, with the plate as a background. In other, even simpler, words: a crop.

Diarrhea of the keyboard here. Meh - it's Monday...what are you gonna do?

I like the original better. Artichokes are delicious and beautiful without manipulation, in my opinion.

You make me want to eat them!! :)

I prefer the 2nd touched up version over the original, warmer tones, no distracting plate. good composition.
