A works best. For B you'd almost need a photo of the people standing as there seems too much open space at top and bottom to work with the beautiful design. There's not much happening in the photo of A background wise so it balances with the detail of the design. Hope that helps.

A for me. I usually go with color, but A is really striking to me.

Tough choice, but I went with B.

I voted for B, the type is really fun and I think it suits the lighter, brighter colour. I also sometimes feel like a brighter colour suits a new years wish best (but I went through the same dilemma with one of mine and settled on a darker colour). I am wondering if you might want to try a different photo for B. Maybe more of a close up or something that fills the space a little better like in A. But still something in lighter tones, like the one you've chosen. Hope this is helpful!

I like A because the lettering is beautiful so I like it as the focal point / having more contrast.

I said A - the lettering really pops in that version

Polling for color - leaning towards the chalkboard treatment, but thought I'd toss out a couple other options (B has the drop shadow...). It's always so hard to decide! Thanks in advance!

I picked B. I like the minty blue-green. The type is very festive, and that color seems to best reflect that!

I love the color in B, but I think the color of A works better with this particular photo.

I like A with the photo, agreeing with Melissa, but love B maybe with a different photo.

Hi! I like the darker background with this design, and the dark navy in Option C works especially well and is a nice twist to the usual black. Lovely lettering!
