Exercise: Softening the light

These images were taken with light and camera the same. The only difference is that in the second a translucent screen has been introduced between the object and the light. The first has a greater range of light.  Dense and solid. Hard lines. The second is softer. Not as harsh.  With this the highlights and shadows have more detail. The shadow in the first is quite intense and becomes almost another subject. This creates a different dynamic. The eye moves between the two points. The second is less dynamic??? A single point??? Which do I prefere? They both have a different feeling. Drama vs Deadpan? Crunch vs Soft? Right now I think soft and deadpan is my favourite of the two. i am sure this will change…………………
