Perfection is the Enemy of Creation

I can't decide.  There is a photo contest for Glam Affair's Amberly skin.  Win, place or lose, photo contests can be lots of fun.  Like blog challenges, they push you to experiment a bit and then to focus on something in particular.  In this case it's a skin that I really love.  I've taken several photos of it.  Though I can submit two photos, I'm not sure which two I like.  Is a SLink hand in the first picture a no no?  Is there enough face in the second one?  Is the third photo a little flat because the shadows are so soft?

More often than I like to admit, my favorite photos happen by surprise. I take lots of pictures from different angles and in different windlight settings.  Some things work, some don't.  I'm not to the point where I can follow a set of procedures and turn out consistent work.  However, I think my skills have improved with experimentation.  I'm not perfect and neither are my photos, but a wise woman once paraphrased Voltaire when she said, "Perfection is the enemy of creation."  Who?  I forget.  I already said I wasn't perfect.
