I'm designing this book of my best ice photos on Blurb and it's been pretty fun. I've come to a difficult spot, though. I know that I want a simple, stark background for the photos, and every colour I've tried looks awful. So it's going to be white (upper photo) or black (lower photo) -- please help me choose, in an e-mail or comment here.
Black tends to make a better background for photos, making the whites and colours in the pictures really jump out...but in this case I also like the stark beauty of plain white, as it evokes winter snow and seems less pretentious somehow. Yes, the whole project is pretentious, but still. I like them both. Over to you, loyal readers -- what say you?
Update: Thanks for all the help...it was fast and nearly unanimous, both here and on Facebook. One thing I played with this morning was a mix of both, like black for the cover and white everywhere else (which worked), and also the possibility of hybrid pages. Not that I expect anyone to change their "vote" or cast another, but I thought it looked pretty decent:
