Hi there! your work has been featured here --> [link]
plz shoot me a note if you'd rather not be a feature I apologize for the cut-and-paste message - all a part of time management Keep up the great work!
I find the background in the other to be too distracting. My vote goes to this photograph because of it's neutral background, diffused flooded lighting, and better use of the frame (not to mention b/w is my favorite photographic medium).
