    I do like the first one. Did you try taking a bit more off the top to eliminate that scrunchy thing? Also, I would lighten the shadows under her eyes. Don't remove them... that would change her looks entirely. Just lighten them a bit. Clean up her face on her right cheek. And what is going on in the lower left corner of the frame? Why black and white for this one?

    The last one is an interesting approach. I find it a bit unsettling. Maybe because I've not seen it before.

    Thanks for the input Pete. The lower left corner of the frame is her mother holding her. She's actually looking over her shoulder at me. I like the way the black and white looked on this, and how her eyes look.

    Here's the color version as well for comparison...
