Always listen to your mommy. I would be a fool to interfere with that. I already edited the long winded fluff out of it. So let me rephrase the question. Do you like your women pink and softly lit or gray and in the shadows.
When all else fails, count on a man's primal tastes. LMFAO

You've introduced a new factor with that comment, Hits.

I base my level of saturation on what looks real. I'm working towards reality, most of the time. It isn't in favor here, but it satisfies me.

It depends on the chop, I think. Even when we have "monochrome", most often it's actually slightly saturated too, like in your example.

Showed my 8 year old nephew the comparison. He liked the "second one, probably because it's more colorful."

For me, it depends on the subject, in this case, I prefer the saturated one.

Thank you Icy, Duane, Newsy, Christine and Pree. I reckon there are arguments for both given circumstances. I created a monochrome recently just for ghits and siggles. After doing the normal caricature manip I destroyed it with contrast and Vivacity just to give it a gritty, illustrative quality. It looks okay, came out cool. If people like it I will invest in a far more complex chop of the same technique. We throw stuff at the wall and see if it sticks. But seeing the response here I may stick with the normal to high sat chops I have been doing. Do you all think it might be fun to have a monochrome or semi monochrome contest?
Cheers T

We could have a black and white chop contest. But "vs." just means open. And "semi" opens it up to interpretation.

I'm late to the game, but I'd probably prefer the less saturated version if it were slightly more saturated. Ha. It almost looks like an oil painting that has aged.

Sort of near unanimous then. Anyway, the Mr. Frost chop that I did in a new style nearly monochrome; more or less tanked here as opposed to Facebook where I published it to rather rave likes. So what is a guy to think? Hahaha.
That is the toughest part of the art process, "what will they like more?" Personally in the past I just did what I like and generally at least got a base hit. But as I get older, I am more concerned about the wants of others and as it should be to some degree. But it is a sloppy science figuring that out.

So Newsmaster, what about for kicks we do B&W and/or sepia approach to modern images made to look vintage. That is sort of kicking around with monochromes. Might be fun.

I think the Mono Chrome thingy kills the Light Values to the point of distraction. I Think the Color Version is a Fabulous Composition. If Monochrome or HDR Type stuff is employed? Look at some of AZRainman's dynamic use of Light Sources. I Think that was a good Look.

Take Care. Tracy

Boy, some great entries and some real crap hahahaha. I didn't even think of focusing on "Ha hah" content until too late.
I hit my chop with all the tricks and buried the traces well. Maybe it was glossed over because it looked fairly natural- you know, nothing special? And that's the point! So I thought.
Truth be known it took a looooooooong time to dial in every element to look like a part of the whole. So I am miffed but still enjoyed the game. Next time I need to remember to post the sources. That would tell the long story. Always a good idea to do that. Cheers

I agree Hits. The source image would have helped tremendously. I had to back-search most every significant image to tell how much work took place. I was on the look out for your chop and never could pin it down. I expected to see some retro aliens or a couple of freakshow oddities. But truly, you did have a great image and it would not have surprised me if it had taken the Gold. I've heard you say these type contest are a crap(s) shoot. The big ones are volatile and you never know how they'll turn out. Luck Helps Too!
