    Neither one works for me. They both could have except for details that I find annoying.

    In #1 the two hands are lined up in such a way that you barely see the left hand. Just enough that I wondered what it was at first glance. I don't know that I'm explaining this right but hope you understand me anyway. lol.

    With #2 it is the shadow on the wrist that kills it for me. Otherwise, with just a bit of your face in the frame, I like this image.

    ahhh i didnt even see the shadow! doh! :(

    was using an overhead light that hangs from the ceiling as thats all i had available.

    thanks for your input. i will try and redo these two and fix those issues. i do know what you mean about the hands lining up in the first. will try and get it so its clearly two hands next time! ;)

    Maybe a different angle would help on the first one. But to be honest, I much prefer the second one. The bit of face really makes a huge difference.

    i think the second one is the best, but it is very grainy to me

    Personally I really like the second one. I find the composition to be more pleasing and I think the noise actually adds something to the image instead of taking away from it. I would try to do something with the blunt shadow line across the wrist and hand. I think just blurring it to make it a little more subtle would be a big help.
