I had to have a 'play' with my new skull lol - I've had it for three days and it's the first chance I've had to photograph it! Glad you like it Grin

Love the processing. I think I like V2 just a bit better because of the light on the skull. Nice work.

Welcome to skull ownership. Wink

I'd lose the sandy overlay texture. Let the natural ones come through.

That's it, everyone has one except me so I'm off to the cemetery tonight. Now where did I put my spade?

Oh yes, nice pictures, V2 for me. Smile

The composition of v2 looks better balanced with the candle on the left. I prefer the light on the roses in v2 as well but there's more detail in the skull on v1. Pick the bones out of that!! TongueGrinGrin

The second composition for me is the more appealing it is very well balanced and very well captured. Whilst at the same time the processing adds to the unique and somewhat eerie ambience.

I agree that the composition in V2 is more balanced. However, I think I prefer the lighting and textures in V1.
I guessed that this was one of your's as soon as I saw the thumbnailWink

Two super images - I slightly prefer v2, I really like the lighting and the position of the skull - you are looking straight into his eye sockets!
