My app allows the user to choose a color from a color picker or from an image, and has a wooden background (the one seen in these mockups) throughout. I have these 6 icon mockups, and i'd like your opinion on which one to use?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I like the bottom-most one as it's showing a complex concept, but visually, at small sizes, it's simple. All that said, heads up that this question will likely be closed as opinion based questions don't really fit on StackExchange. – DA01 Nov 23 '11 at 19:48

The last in your set stands out as being well balanced and neither completely static nor bland. The landscape colors in the pixelated image fragment on the left, combined with the target in the lower right, immediately make me think of a first-person shooter, though, and I can't shake the impression. A flower, or something else that doesn't say "scenery," would be less ambiguous.

Aye, I'd go for the last one too. @AlanGilbertson, seems you played a bit of Doom back in the day? :P – rikkit Dec 27 '11 at 22:54
