I have a subfigure in which I want to shift one of the figures to the left, but when I shift it the caption is in its place. what should I do?

Here is what I have in latex:

\begin{figure*}[ht]
\hspace{-4cm}
\subfigure[1]{
\includegraphics[scale=1]{1.eps}
\label{fig:1}
}
\\
\subfigure[2]{
\hspace{-4cm}
\includegraphics[scale=1]{2.eps}
\label{fig:2}
}
\label{fig:fig}
\caption[fig:fig]{caption}
\end{figure*}

The problem is with figure 2

It's quite unclear why you should use \hskip{-4cm} to begin with. –  egreg Mar 21 '12 at 16:03

Your problem is better understood if you provide a complete MWE (instead of snippets). You are using \begin{figure*}. Are you using 2 column format? Do you want figures to come one below the other? Are you using subfigure package? If so, kindly consider using subfig instead as the former is obsolete. Bottom line: MWE please. –  Harish Kumar Mar 21 '12 at 17:07
