v1 shows the mud well, Lillian, but I do like the eye contact and lick of the lips in v2. Maybe just a slight crop off the top to put his eyes on a third would make it perfick.

Tigers playing in the Mick, a bit like Brodie who comes home after a winter walk with half the park adhering to his undercarriage,
Love both shots but the portrait in V 2 is the one I like the better, Lillian.
Congrats on all the UA's.
