Which Photo is Better: A or B?

Article from Chase Jarvis Blog

Alrighty. Regardless of the fact that this A or B series (here, here, and here) has been really interesting for us, helpful, and popular with you (the last such post received over 1000 comments in 24 hours)…

This time it is of even greater interest for us. You see, we’re doing some image editing around here and we’ve stumbled into a little internal debate about which one of these two images is actually better, A or B. [You might remember these shots from the Nikon D7000 campaign...]

Hearing from you will help really help us. No qualifiers, don’t worry about our objectives, or the “assignment”. We want to know which one of these shots you like better. And please tell us in the comments below, not via twitter. Raw preference. Period. If you can add some “why”, that would be nice too. Full 600 pixel wide images after the jump. Hit ‘continue reading’ below [and btw, I've got a $1 gentlemen's bet riding with Erik about which one will win, so don't let me down!]…

After you all weigh in, Ill tell you which one I like, which one I thought you’d like, and why.

This is image A, below:

This is image B, below:

So which photo is better? A or B?
