    I think I prefer the first one. Her elbow poking out the top of her head looks odd. Nice light and pose though.

    I agree - the first is best. Very nice lighting on both.

    1st without a doubt for me! The phantom limb (elbow) in the second really bothers me!

    I prefer the first one too, i love her hair and you're cutting that off in the 2nd one.

    The first one is by far the better of the two.

    well taken portrait....first without cropping is best.

    however i wud have got an horizontal cropping, first from just beneath the fingers....leaving more space in front....avoiding her bra strap.
