Re: Does this one work better?
In reply to Deepak Kaw, Mar 28, 2013

I like the first one better.  It is a more interesting pose.

Both have the problem of darkened faces in a high contrast lighting situation, much like backlighting.  Making the face more visible, or accepting that it won't be, that decision defines the photo.   The first brings more emotional power, and engages more areas of the viewer's brain.  But you don't have a frontal face view.   You should just play with it and see how it satisfies you.   In terms of color and subject, it has a Steve McCurry feel, but the way he shoot the faces tend to dominate.
