I'm for # 2 also, there are a few hot spots in the first one. Nice shilhouette !

And did I mention how much I dislike this cell-phone filming? Have been to the ZZ-top concert yesterday night and from our place up there we've seen hundreds of people filming wissa I-phone. And if I say hundreds, it was certainly many more :?

#1 for me - I like the brighter background, the figures are clearer, and the silhouette of the boy's baseball cap ia great :D .

I prefer # 1 myself, but, maybe try to make the people full black silhouettes, and maybe crop that phone out on the right.. I agree with Birma that the full side profile of the kid is great. I also like how you have people cell filming :lol: in so many different directions.. My 2 cents John

#2 for me, too. It's more interesting to see the child's camera screen than all the rest in the other image.

I prefer the side on view of the child in #1 but like the silhouettes in #2 - as suggested above, can you darken the shadows in #1 to get more of a silhouette?

Number 1 for me, also how about clone stamping out the peoples mobile phone screens... thats the only thing that attracts away from the image for me.
