    Hello:

    Here are two similar shots I got, but I can't decide which one I want to use. These are straight out of the camera. Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Right for me - smiles get me every time. :)

    On both there's a short black ribbon(?) just abaft of the stocking top hanging downwards. Not sure what it is but once I noticed it it became very distracting.

    Don't worry, I know about that and I will be sure to clone that out. Like I said, these are straight from the camera right now, so just looking for thoughts on composition/mood.

    Thanks! :)

    What are you going to use it for? The facial expression really makes this two very different images, both nice, but different.

    I like both for different reasons. really depends on what you're going for here.

    I think the second is a better pose as the head tilts a tad more and the smile. Of course some touch up for brightness is needed.

    What are the different reasons?

    Right now, I'm just posting on social media. I've been trying to post things almost every day and it's been drumming up some activity for me.

    I think I lean more towards the smiling one.

    It's the one on the right for me as well. IMO, her body position shows a certain flirty sense of fun (knee up, shoulders turned relative to her legs) that goes much better with the smile than the pensive expression on the left.

    Or maybe I'm just biased because you titled it as a pinup shot...
