When I dragged image one to my second monitor which is still set up for the PC I used to have, there was no real image to see, just black - it is pretty dark on my main (profiled) Mac monitor although if I look at it from the side then more detail appears and it is rather interesting. The question then is, is it my monitor or yours that is influencing what I see, or is what I see what you intended? The second image, on the other hand, has a pleasant sense of pattern and just enough mystery. Far more satisfying.

Very black here with little detail, And shows a little shape but 90 percent of the picture is just black

I think Sue that you may be seeing it as it is. Almost completely black with just a hint of a ladies shape. Looking from different angles complements the image.

It is the 10 per cent Kev that should make the difference but I think it is not to everyones taste though. Thanks for the comment.

Great image - love the mystery of it. I started out prefering V2 on my uncalibrated laptop, but looked again when I read your last comment and agree the V1 actually has more to it becasue it is so dark. Fine work.

Cheers Rockfish. I think we have got so used to looking at correctly exposed images that we forget what correct means. I love the way that you can gleam more detail from the image by looking at it from different angles including down onto your monitor.

I found V1 very intrigueing and noted my own reaction was to look at V1 more than V2. V2 is easily recognisable and any novelty factor soon wears off. Much to my own surprise I prefer V1 an almost, but not quite, black image.

Sorry but I find it still far to dark. I can vaguely see the silhouette but if its that difficult to see why bother.
