    Hi Jon. I didn't cut it. This girl was a pro and quick as hell. I was having a hard time keeping up with her. The second picture is exactly as I took it, with no crop, color correction, anything.

    That's why I put it up here though. I felt it was close too, but agree that she looks radiant in the second. What's a girl to do?????

    Definatley the second, try a really tight crop of her eyes or face to make it seem that it was delibrately done so close.

    I think the first would have been better if she was looking at the camera but under the circumstances you mentioned...

    That second one is great... it just radiates ALIVE!! Also, I would try black and white saturating the colour more... I just love that when it comes to portraits!! Great work!

    Excellent exposure. Obviously the model is not bad either. I am not sure if one is better than the other. They are different from each other. The distant look of the first frame keeps me guessing. The playfulness of the second shot makes me say "whoa; she is definitely a model". What were your intentions during this shoot?

    yeah i really like the second one better too. it depends on what you might be using this picture for. wait actually, it doesnt matter, because the second one is pretty much universally better. not that the first one is bad, but her smile is just...wow. its good to have in the picture. that is a beautiful model.
