Which one looks ok?

I know everyone has different tastes but which one looks good to you? Or do they both look alright? I have been messing around with photoshop all day. Well, almost. Smile I've just been so anxious to learn more on editing a certain way. I wrote down all my steps this time so I won't forget what I did! Biggrin My eyes are not great right now though because I am getting tired. I need to go to bed! I forgot how addicting this can be! Smile

Which one? I don't know if you can see much of a difference. I tried making his skin tone better but this is where my other post comes in. (Actions and skintones-does it really matter all that much?) these aren't sharpened for web but I believe flickr sharpens them a bit. Thanks!

#1).

#2).

cool Smile thanks! the only difference between the two is a color balance layer and I'm thinking I'm going to make a couple of different ones for the different color changes. Awesome! And just so you can see the difference. Here is the regular one. This one I just edited in ACR and reduced size, frame, watermark, saved. It's just a small difference.

# 2

I like it because you can firstly see more of his face, it's not black on the left.
And its a bit creamier Biggrin

I actually like #1 better because I feel the face is too bright in #2.

I like your last edit better. I did like #2 b/c it was creamier, but then again, it was a bit too bright. He's handsome as ever though!

thanks Smile i edited these on my uncalibrated laptop.... now i have a calibrated external monitor so the 3rd picture (the non edited one pretty much) looks normal to me. I'll have to work on a new edit again. Smile
