Krystal restaurant in Decatur, Ala., reopens after double murder

I really love it when a photographer gives his editor the choice between a literal and a non-literal image. Photographer Cary Cosby covered the emotional reopening of a fast food restaurant after a double murder. He shot all the straight pictures, but also captured this complex image of sad faces reflected in the window of the restaurant. Which of these two pictures do you think works best? See all of Cosby's images here.
