Holy shit he looks like a lobster. He looks less like a lobster in the first graphic, so I favour that one a bit more. Both are good. I think I see a motion blur on the front pic of the first graphic. If that is what I'm seeing, I'd take that off. No need to overdo the motion blur. The bottom one, I'd do something to the back cut of Batista to make him less lobster-like. Although it does look cool, like he's emerging from hot lava, and makes him look hella angry.
The back Batista pic is getting old. I'd change it, but there arn't to many good Batista pics out there. Maybe find some action pic of him for the background. I like the blur on Batista. Lately I've been trying to not colorlize my pics, its looks good like that.
I'd say their about equal, but I'd fade the blended pic of him in the second one a bit around the sides and maybe the top a bit. His hair doesn't blend at all, which makes him stick out despite him blending perfectly around the neck.
You can see the background on both of the Stacy cuts. They're still decent cuts though. Hair is hard to cut out. It takes forever, but I make sure I go through and erase any background parts in a cut. I'm decent with cutting out background parts in hair.
