    I like #2 but I would use lower f stop to blur the background even more.

    Technically speaking, you should probably leave negative space on the side of the frame that she's facing (opposite of what you have in your crops) for a standard smiling portrait. As it is in 2 an 3, she's falling out of the frame, which isn't very comfortable to the eye.

    maybe you could blur out the tree branches? Just a quick question...did you shoot from the ground up? for some reason, she looks like she is looking down? Just wondering....

    I vote for #1 since I like the way the clothing relates to the setting

    I like the first one. The other two her head looks unnatural it looks like when you cropped it her head looks bigger than her body, or bigger than it actually is.
