how do you hold your fingers?

Which way do you hold your fingers when you are making the sign of the cross? The open palm way where your five fingers represent the five wounds of Jesus Christ. Or do you hold your fingers as shown in this picture; which originated from the Eastern Orthodox church. The three fingers touching represent the Holy Trinity, Three Persons brought together in the Godhead. The other two fingers are tucked into the palm of your hand, representing the Two Natures of Jesus Christ (meaning He is fully human and fully divine). Thank you Fr. Jonathon for showing us this.
