    3 & 4 look the same so I think they might be ok where they are. I put 2 last because it does look darker than the rest

    I agree with the black and white one, I thought it when in color, but it is obvious in b&w.

    Thx Marti, I think so too, now. This has to be exact, no guessing, that why I need fresh eyes to look.

    Wow, I have heard people say to take a b & w picture, but have never tried it. It is neat to see how well that works. I will use that trick in the future!

    To my eyes, #2, 3, and 4 don't have sufficient difference in value, if you really need a difference. Depending on what part of each one is more visible in each piece after cutting, they might go in different order.

    I'd go with 1,3,4,2, too. My favorite trick is to look through the viewfinder of my camera or take pictures of the colors.

    I agree 1342. Because 3 and 4 are the same value, you might want to substitute something else for one of them, even though they are both lovely.

    Do you have a piece of red plastic, can't remember the name of the tool, look through it and it shows the color value.
