I consider both these pieces better than the other entries I have seen so far.
I dig the colour scheme and text in the first, but feel it is too centralised.
The second is not to my personal taste, but I like the way my eye follows the motion of the subjects hand, from the left then away to the right of the image, nicely done. My only qualm is with the darkness of the bottom right corner.
My initial response would have been to vote for the first, but upon closer investigation, I find the second not only has more impact, but is a better composition overall.
Normally, that theme of sig would put me off, but the maker has done a great job, in my uneducated opinion.
Vote goes to #2.

I had to sit and look at these for about 10 minutes before deciding on which to choose. I think number one has its issues but the simplicity of it speaks louder than the complexity of choice 2. Number 1 is broken into 4ths rather than thirds, and a little messy above the hair with the background stamp. The color, mood and feel of the piece is wonderful though. Its simple, subtle and still flows nicely.

Number 2 is the superior signature in technique and design. Normally I would base my opinion on that but the content and background just don't do it for me. I think the style is completely over-used and mechanical rather then inspiring of feeling. Ultimately I want to feel something when i look at a piece but with number 2 I feel bored. When I look at number 1 I feel refreshed with the blues and soft greens, but almost a desperation because the girl looks like shes dead and floating in water.

This was a tough one to call

Close one. Mine was #2 in case nobody had figured it out already.

Good battle, Freak!
