Lace Offsets or not

To offset or not?
Some Lace Patterns lend themselves very well to Offsetting and improve
when thus handled, yet amazingly some offsetting becomes detrimental to the general look and appeal of the changes.

The Webshot Slideshow of changed patterns from the Stitchworld 940
book is a good example of patterns which have benefitted by being
offset, yet the reverse can be said for other patterns.

Showing are 2 examples of a handlace-converted pattern, which I
did in both versions.
The comparisons speak for themselves!
