Playing Around With Photo Editing

For some reason, this photo has proven to be a fun one for me to play with. I have tried several different combinations. It was a very random spur-of-the-moment shot. We had just gone out to dinner at Chloe's favorite restaurant, Akiras. It is a Japanese Teppan restaurant where the chef cooks in front of you on a big cooktop. Chloe and Pearl just love the onion volcanoes.

After dinner we came home and as I was unloading my camera from the car, I noticed how beautiful the red/orange blossoms were on our pomegranate tree and how nicely they contrasted with the wall of white star jasmine by our kitchen. I asked Chloe to pose for a picture and she was more than happy to comply. I think picking flowers is one of her favorite pastimes, although this time, it means a few less pomegranates in the Fall. I really liked all of the variations on this picture, but I think I like the Black and White best of all. Which one do you like the best?
