Default Which Background Paper Works Best?

Funny on my laptop the LO looks fine the first way. But when I put it up on the flat screen the LO seemed to Bright!
Which on do you think is better the orignal paper or the on that is altered?

The lighter on is Here

I like the lighter one because it makes the photo more prominent - the eyes go directly to the white dog - which is your goal, right?

I like both of them. I like the way the picture pops off the page on the lighter one. But I also like everthing matching
I am not used to the look of The Big White Dog (Cody) shaved so That might be what is making me hesitate on the lighter BG

The fact that because I was doing a Challenge and copying the X behind the photo, I have only done this a few times before. This also might be my hesitation on this Page. The darker BG subdues the X.

Thanks for the fun input I have recieved So Far.

I like the first, birghter one better,
the colors are much more friendly than the other one.
the second one is a little bit too cool for my taste.

I like the first lighter one too, pops the photo more!! Even though they both look great. I know what you mean by the layout looking fine on your laptop and then too bright on another screen, I have the same experience a lot!!
Hope we've helped!
Hugs

Thanks for all the input

I do like the way the photo Pops on the light BG
I think I might try removeing the X and try something else.
You do you thin?
