Shimano LX Crankset question

Do you people think these 2 cranks are the same looks wise? they seem to look like different colors to me.
Crank 1

Crank 2 (the pewter not black)

i really like the look of the one on the jenson site but they are all out of peweter and black would look ugly on my bike. the "Crank1" site has the same model and looks to be about the same color. its all about looks.....j/k lol these seem like good cranks for the price

There was an 03 LX with black arms and gold chain rings. I got that from Jenson. They seem to work just fine and the price is right
