I like #1 better, because I've never been a fan of grain, however in this case, it does add something to it, and it does work.

Number one for me also. I think the grain would work if it were reversed. Dark instead of white. I really dig the out of focus background. Great shot!

The second one reminds me of something out of the 60's or 70's,south Asia.
I too prefer the first one! That's quite a combo your shooting with!

Number one is cool. I like how you have him looking into the frame instead of vice versa. Very good shot.

Hi Steve...
Although the initial look, the 1st shot does appear to be better, but I keep going back to the 2nd one as it has a feel to it as if it's an old shot from WWII... I do like it....

This is one of those strange things that happens from time to time. Try viewing the images in isolation from each other (scroll so that you can only see one at a time) and they work in different ways - seeing them together somehow alters what I see... I do agree that the first image looks more modern and the second has a vintage feel...

Hey Steve..... both work for me in different ways.... when viewed alone each conveys a different meaning......

In essence.... I love both of them and just goes to show what you can do with one image processed in unique ways.......

But.... it's the strength of the original image that makes this work... excellent stuff!

Hey, Steve,
There is just something about that graininess in #2 that appeals to me eye. Now, if I were looking for a portrait to put on the coffee table, I might choose #1, but I love the moodiness and darkness of #2. But, truth to tell, they are both very nice.
