    #1 hands down. 3 is cropped in too close and I prefer the natural expression on 1 vs the smile on 2. 1 looks appropriately contemplative. 2 looks a bit contrived.

    Nice shot!

    I like the fact that you can see more of her face and expression in #1 but #3 looks more intimate which IMO fits this type of shot better so I would crop #1 like #3.

    My personal favorite is #3, followed by #1. I like the closer crop--I feel it has a balance that's missing in #1.

    My favorite is # 3. I like her expression and I like the crop on this one, deifnitely a more intimate portrait. Plus, I think the lighting on the arm and then leading to the hands in better in #3. In #1, I think the arm is too dark compared to the hands.

    #3, prefer the tight crop. I do find the reflections from the ring and pants at the bottom a trifle distracting, but it's a great shot!

    Okay, I did a closer crop on one. I added another one. Like the silhouette or the full frontal.

    #3 is tops in my books. They are all very well done though... you could enter them all.

    I think #1 with the tighter crop is even better now. I think it's important that you can see more of her face than in #3. I'd stick with the low light quasi- silhouette option instead of full frontal, which leaves too little to the imagination.
