Interpretation: Face Off

Challenge #48 in the Ways of Seeing series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
When looking at one of our own images, we are often faced with the challenge of how to prepare it for viewing. How should it be cropped, should the color be enhanced or reduced, use subtle tones or high contrast, make it sharp or soft focus? Prepare two versions of the same image. Use whatever technique you want, make whatever adjustments you want, but make the two images substantially different. Submit them both and see which one garners the best votes.
