    I like the third one. Not only are you using thirds, but the flow of lines to balance the image. The first one has a lot of dead space on the right that doesn't work for me.

    I actually love them all. I think #1 is interesting. Sometimes the white space makes you long for more... I LOVE IT!!

    Thank you :)
    The first one I was trying to have her eyes lead you into the space and wonder what she might be looking for, but she was looking "up" too much and lead you out the frame to early.
