    Not to jump on the ruddy flash when he's having his photo taken ;)

    Took the first with just ambient light in my room (dim) and then used my sunpak flash in the second for a bit more light.
    Not quite shore which I like more -- so any thoughts?

    I like the flashed on far better, the grasshopper does not look like a problem in that one because one can see exactly what it is.

    Nice pix


    Kinda like the first one more, looks like it's part of the logo.

    I actually liked them both the first one gave it a old rusted look and the second one gave it a new crisp look

    Thanks for the iput all - glad that its not just me that is finding it tricky to decide which is the better. I do agree the insect has more clarity inthe second - I might try to play around with the RAWs and emulate the effect of the first in the second shot - a bit more clarity with the older age touch.
