Both beautiful, - kinda prefer the V2 crop, - focal point seems not to be on her face in V1.

Prefer V1 - and the b/ground is so apt for her expression. Super work, Jo.

A good looking young lady, well photographed, and I like the background effect. Prefer the crop in V1, I think it helps the viewer concentrate more on her face.

God but she's pretty Jo. Reminds me of Alice in Wonderland for some reason. Don't know why though. V1 for me ... I like the tighter crop.

Like the contrast between teh skin and the grungy background.
Can't make up my mind about which is a better crop though

V1 for me. I like both the placement of her in the frame and the use of the background as contrast to her wonderfully smooth skin. The color and content of the background also serves to give this such an innocent appeal.
(I know what you mean about not seeing them....flying from the nest...wish I could bring back those wonderful moments when they were closer to home.)

Jo, you really have been prolific this year and as I've not been on much lately it's great to look through so much of your work in one sitting! This is a wonderful image and I really enjoy both versions. The colour, expression, processing and the choice of images are all first class. Keep it going!!
