Which Cover?

I need your help. Which cover do you like best? These are all rough mock-ups--I'm looking for the general idea you like best. Fonts can be changed easily. Please ignore the watermarks--I haven't purchased any of the images yet. 

And if you don't like any of the covers, please say so. You can answer in the comment section. Thank you!! I really appreciate your help!

The story is a YA urban fantasy about a teenage girl who discovers she has enough Light to battle a nasty demon.

 
#1 Girl with Aura

 
#2 Light Burst 
 


#3 Light in Palms



#4 Hands Holding Light

 
 
#5 None of the Above

OK, let's see if I can get my thoughts out clearly. I like a lot from all of them, but I think it would look cool to have the girl(a shot further out, not a closeup) of her holding her hands out with the light in them. Have her looking down at her hands.Does that make sense?

Sorry I meant #3--got the numbers mixed up.

Sorry Rebecca, but these covers don't lure me in. The hands idea I like less than the girl, but the girl does not hold my interest. Perhaps with more contrast . . . But even so, it doesn't give me a flavor for the book that makes me want to pick it up.

Usually I like covers where I can see someone's face, however...I also like the last cover, too. :)

I like the one w the girl--because of the eyes and how very fair she is. I also like the one w the light in the palms. I like the title font on last cover. Not a huge fan of the borders, but black more than blue. All great options, but those are my favorites. Best of luck!

I like the top one best of the four, but to be straight-up honest, I'm not in love with it either, it just doesn't say urban fantasy to me.

I like the hand ones the best. Good luck!

I think I'd like some combination of #1 and #5. I like the colors on #5 and YA usually seems to have faces on the cover. Hope this helps!

I like the first one the best. The next runner up for me is the last one, except I think the hands look too cartoony. But I like that the background has more depth and design. Can you take the picture from the first cover and put it on the background of the last cover?
