New work- Lighting conundrum

  Last night I had Jay Jones over to photograph my new work.   He and I are having an ongoing conversation about capturing the surface of my sculptures with stark shadows versus the soft lighting that most people are using these days. I am including the soft lighting version of Qatar for an example. I  like them both, but wonder which style shows the surface treatment better? I like the dramatic lighting, but is it too much? I would love some opinions on this issue. Thanks!
