Hi Roy

I Like both. I am Sure it would Work either way. However IMHO, I think the Maroon looks better

Roy, I like the 2nd one the best- I think it makes the dog and hat stand out more.
Just my opinion........

Hi Roy,
I like both the closer crop on the dog in the first one and the maroon background in the second one, so basically my suggestion would be to crop the second shotto be similar to the first.

Hi Roy,

I like the maroon better -- Of course, the sizing makes them difficult to evaluate, but with the white background, it makes the dog . . . errrr. . . model -- look cut out, and I'm not a fan of the look. The darkness of the maroon also balances the pic better, but that's obvioulsy just a preference.

I too like the maroon one, it is one of my favourite colours.
Maroon is our State colour and the State of Origin Rugby League team is called "The Maroons"

I agree with Scott - both are good but I don't care for the stark white background. I do like the crop of the dog better in it, and the lettering in the first one off-sets the white enough that it works.

And I agree with Scott and Harriet, but would like to see how the maroon works with the text on it. I'm not sure there...

Second one.



I, too, am not a fan of the "cut-out" look that the white background gives.



Whichever you choose, I hope they sell well.

I vote for the maroon too..perhaps with some yellow lettering to match the hat?
