    I would choose black and white. I don’t have a black and white photo anywhere in my home and would love to hang one up in my living room.

    What an awesome giveaway! We just had a friend take some nice family photos so I’d love to enlarge some on canvas.

    I love the black and white with a color highlight effect. Beats having to use photoshop.
