I kinda like that -50 at the top.. But for keeps, you can't beat the new colors.
Caution wake turbulence, you are following a heavy jet.

My choices would be either the top photo ( -50) or the soon-to-be-out bowling shoe livery.

For their current/new livery, I would have preferred that they kept the old NW compass logo and titles along with the larger red coverage of the bowling shoe livery but just changed the lower part of the plane to the new silver (any titles and logos on the silver part would still be done in black).
