New business cards soon...

I'm planning to use one of these two images on the front of my new business cards. I'm leaning towards the second one, but I'd like your thoughts. I've already recieved some feedback elsewhere, but I'd like to balance that out with some other opinons.

Anyone have a preference?









These were some alternate shots as well...

Well, I think that the first one is absolutely gorgeous, but not representative of your work I've seen in general, so I wouldn't suggest that one. Not loving the purple background on the second. My favorites are 3 and 4. Between those it's a tough call. Are these business cards to give to people so they will go to your stock port or to try and get more business?

Well, these are the standard cards that istock gives to exclusives. Last year, I made some fairly random choices both with images and contact info and wound up with pretty useless cards. Ideally, I'd like to get a nice all-around card this time. I plan to have a portrait of some type on the front, since its a full bleed image and maybe 2 product or landscape shots on the back since those are spot images. - have you seen any of the cards?
There is a a code for free credits and istock's logo on them, so to a large degree they ARE intended to drive people to istock, but I plan to include my website as well...

I almost wish they'd just give us a generic card. This is making me nuts.

I've seen pictures but never one in person. Since it's an istock card and not one you are personally making up I vote for the girl with the headphones.

I'll second that.
I think it's more representitive of the work you do, and she looks like she's got soul, something you'd only see if she were completely comfortable with you as a photographer.

I like the headphones one too, but it looks kinda wierd with the text and iStock logo. I can't seem to win here! I'm VERY tempted to skip the photo all together and just do my own cards and just leave them plain...
