At least a simple 'correction' was necessary for the first image since it obviously looked underexposed (this is perhaps the camera intended to secure highlight at the background since the metering was set to 'pattern'), which could also be confirmed checking the Histogram in the Levels (see? no colour information to the right of the graphics, which requires pushing the slider on the righthanside to the left). Simply selecting the subject with the quick selection tool would bring a smarter outcome before the correction. Well, further artistic edits are another matter of course mostly related with taste. Still, removing the line at the background simple suggested was a must to do, imo! Btw, I think you'd better preserve reflections in her eyes in the original in your final outcome also, many a good example of which could be seen even in time honoured portraits.
