While both stand out in their own ways, I think that the new livery is brighter, more visible and generally more fresh-looking than the old one. However, the old livery seems, to my eyes, to be less confusing, colour-wise, than the new one, and easier on your eyes. I like both. If I had to choose one, I would probably choose the new one, primarily because it does look more modern and striking.

I still prefer the desert colors to canyon blue, but the new one has grown on me. As someone that often spots planes on approach, I also prefer the registration lower on the fuselage. The problem with both is the fade factor - as the time from painting increases, the colors fade quite noticeably, and do not look as sharp.
