For me V2 works better as it seems more believable with regards to the light. There's something that doesn't quite ring true with V1 and the masking/layering. It's still good, don't get me wrong, it's just a niggling thing.

V1 for me! Both images are excellent but I think there are more subtle details in V1 and the texture in the b/g adds a lot to the shot. I like the toning you've added to the shot.

I love v2 as for me the texture in v1 does,nt match up with the main subject as it appears to be a close up.

cheers for FB all
hmmm.... V2 is the reason i asked him round, as i wanted to do that particular pose but then i went a bit mad with the messin' in V1 lol

I am not sure....................
I really don't know whether to believe that is the reason you invited him round or not.

Good pictures resulted - whatever your motives

with the interplay of light and shadow you have some great shapes and lines going on.

cheers folks Smile

Not sure about it?? Are you having a laugh? This is bloody brilliant. Both versions are fantastic. No.2 is my preference for shear dramatic impact. This looks so professional and would not look out of place in publication. Love it.
25 Jun 2008 11:45AM
Both versions are fantastic but i think that i prefer the version n.2 Smile
25 Jun 2008 2:38PM
quite like the lighting / contrast in #2...

Excellent Jo, I doubt/hope my humble award will be the last. The lighting is excellent and the faded in background works well.

No problem, just realised I made a slight grammatical error though as although I doubt it will be the last award I did not mean to suggest I hoped it would be! Combination of a long day and poor proof reading skills, sorry.
