Trying to decide which picture to post to Flickr next. Which does everyone like the most?
Wow, tough call. They're all so different. I like all of them a lot.
Put them all up?
all great job
I like 3 & 4 best
they're all pretty solid, but they are all very very different...i guess it depends on what you wantto convey with the post.
i like the last one most.
i really like number one.
yeah... they're all fantastic.... but #4 stands out the most for me.
2 and 4, I like the lighting in 2 and 4's comp makes it a great shot.
I think the last has the most potential out of the bunch but I keep getting drawn from the subject down to the light/flash by his left knee.
Thanks for the input everyone. I went ahead and posted all of them to flickr plus one additional photo taken on a different night. Here is the other one.

Interesting thought. To me I never saw the person so much as the subject but rather the shadows cast on the floor.
Even so I still get drawn to the hottest spot in the frame which is the light. If his body completely blocked the light it would be another story though.
It actually makes for a far less interesting shot. I have 7 shots of him from this angle. Six have the light hidden, this was the one that the light accidentally made it into the frame. It was definitely the most interesting of the bunch.
I would have to see the others to understand I suppose. Also I would recommend cloning out the lights in the negative space on the last as well.
The shot has a lot going for it...but there are also things which take the attention away from the subject for sure.
