there's one with the arms close, one with arms apart, and one in between..
My view..
The best to me is the arms close because its not just a frolic but an exploration and curiosity which is well expressed by her face.. Also, the face's composition better with variable light and some part of it is hidden which incites a subtle charm.. Moreover, as she is looking at the sand in her hands with curiosity, it exhibits she is not in a hurry, which suggests its about leisure and peace.. Also, it incites more curiosity in the viewer..
The one with arms wide apart (this one) is just good.. There have been many shot like this.. In that manner, as the mind takes it for granted, it wanders on other things such as her beauty and form, which are beautiful.. The color of her shirt and shorts are much more visible here as it is what I start seeing taking the upper part for granted..
the third with arms in between wide and close also incites curiosity.. It could resemble a prayer but the hair are wild and flying in the air so it could not be a prayer.. That the hair is flying in the air does not give it any stable mood.. and so it becomes a wild frolic again..

So for me winner is the arms close..

It will be a hard choice to make - perhaps you could put them together as a triptych! Smile

I like this one because of the arch of water over your model, brilliantly timed and caught! Smile
