    I am seeking some advice on this one. Which is more to your liking?


    With some levels adjustments and some burning and dodging....

    No post processing (ok, a little sharpening...)

    I will keep the direction in which I am leaning quiet until I hear a few responses.
    Thanks for looking,

    I think I like the first one better.

    I think somewhere in between the two. I like the contrast of the first, but it seems a little too dark to me.

    I like the first one much better! Gives it a more sinister feel, pool sharks, dingy bar.

    I like the first one better too, except a tad lighter ... but don't lighten so much where it takes away from the swinging lights above the pool table!
