    Neither. The first one gives me a sense of vertigo and the second makes me cringe.

  2. How to sort blog readers by sense of humour. Amusing as the second one is, it can’t compete, in my mind, with the first.

    I prefer the first one, though the shadows kind of ruin the effect. It would have been a bit better against the other wall, as then the shadows would have been realistically possible if he were standing straight up.

    eek for the first one,made me feel queasy.

    Second made me laugh.

  5. Sohvan says:

    I prefer the first one. Took me a while to notice how it really is.

  6. Dave says:

    The first one is the best because I haven’t seen it before, you posted the other one previously.

  7. M says:

    Second one isn’t very good. I like the first one more. Made me smile.

  8. mickeyd says:

    First one is quite clever. Second one somehow just doesn’t work, maybe the guy should have been a bit smaller and standing closer to her face?

  9. Mark says:

    They’re both good, but I prefer the first one – it makes me wish I’d had that idea when I was there! 🙂

    Get your head out of the bin, Mate!

  11. The first one! It has been thought about and I think quite clever and effective.

  12. Bletherskite says:

    First one for me. The second one is mildy amusing but the composition is not as good as others i’ve seen

    I prefer pic of the man leaning against the wall, it’s posed and happy.
    The other is poorly posed and mildly amusing.

  14. Lindamp says:

    First one. I don’t think I’d’ve even noticed anything about the second one if I hadn’t been prompted to look closer, as it doesn’t really work.

  15. knobody says:

    the first one. it’s clever and i am in awe of his athletic ability. he makes it look so effortless.

  16. catena says:

    The first, by far. The second I guess is funny in a 5th-grade-male type of way.

  17. NoAstronomer says:

    The first one is just brilliant.

  18. simbel says:

    The first one! Very clever, and good execution. The second one is lame.

  19. says:

    Both were classic, although I think the first took more effort. Well done.

  20. Alessandro I. says:

    Second one is very nice! The first one would be lovely without the shadow…

  21. Mollie says:

    The second one looks photoshopped…clone tool stuff under the woman’s head. But why?

  22. Baciu says:

    The first one is the best :)) 😀 …. =))) template
