Here are two versions of a fountain.... Let me know if you like one more than the other. It looks to me like I should have used a more narrow aperture to include more detail of the fountain but my aperture disks were missing at the time of this shot.

Very neat Joby, I can't decide though which I like better.

"Savdem" helped me in a recent "Critique" post to understand the difference he felt between color and B&W (or in your case sepia toning). He said that he felt color brought out feelings, whereas B&W tends to emphasize forms. I believe that I agree with his viewpoint. It all depends upon what you are trying to do with your images. And by the way, I like them both.

I like the contrast of the first image, but the sepia/mono tones of the second. I think maybe making the bricks lighter in the second might give it more pop. I think the wide ap. works well though :-)

The blue on the back and the brown in front gives the image extra depth I think.

I like both version.

I lean more toward the first one because of the mixture of the browns and black of the fountain against the mutted browns of the tiles behind it.

And the Sepia seems to bring out more detail of the fountain though.

I don't think this is a good lensbaby subject the way it was composed. I feel this way, because I feel the image taken without a lensbaby is just fine the way you have it composed, because 1) there is symmetry and 2) there are patterns to framing the symmetry. The lensbaby adds nothing to this shot, in my opinion.
