I do like V2 as you can see the lovely expression on the little girls face, to me it is timeless, lovely image.

V2 is very delicate and subtly composed but too much light and shadow in v1 IMHO and the dandelion is overexposed with blown highlights. I can see what you wer trying to achieve but it hasn't quite worked in v1. Still gets a click for v2 and these are just MY opinions.

Both just fantastic I can't decide which I prefer. I will have to think about hiring that model again !!!
Preferable to lying on my tummy in my neighbours garden trying to catch the light on those beautiful seed heads.

Paul might be right here, but who cares about those blown highlights - it is a marvellous picture, very artistic and your little model sure loves it. I like how the light makes her hair and profile shine,
Second is also very beautiful.

"but who cares about those blown highlights"
2 good shots, prefer #2. However, Robin 1 has made good constructive criticism here, and this IS a photographic site after all, where we are supposed to offer help and good advice, and also improve on our photographic skills.
