Now that is close - #1 I think the shadows take away from the photo, #2 is my favorite. I would have liked to see the eye in focus so a slightly different angel perhaps. They are all very sharp.

NOW that is CLOSE! =)
Maybe I need a 300 lens?! LOL! I always want to go further with the 200! =)
For *me* I like #2.
The shadows work with it.

Hey Bwield,
Looks like the k10 is working well I really like the 1st shot so that one gets my vote.

That's how I look in the bathroom mirror first thing in the morning.

#2 does it for me. I sort of agree with daacon about the eye, but it also works well without it, in an abstract kind of way.
