Which is better? Black or white?

I never know which to do and how much to add.
Border or not to border...that is the question.
Any suggestion? anyone

I personally prefer the white one as it makes the landscape stand out more.
Lately, I have noticed, no border seems to do better in challanges.....

Thanks...I really like your borders....How many pixels do you add?

Just to be different, I suppose... I prefer the black one. For me, the white border is too "jarring". You're going along, looking at the image and then *wham*, there's the border. But the black border tends to fit in with the image as there are already blacks within the image. It's more "soothing" to my eye.

I agree with you..I like the black better, also.
