Mark.

these are both great. i love the eye contact, and the casual playful pose that works well for a child. good selective focus.

i think both formats have merit here. i like the context of the first one. and i like the offset closeup of shot #2.

i liked them both, and can't really fault them much.

I thing the tighter crop bring the girls to a more personal level. It isolates her as the main subject better.

#1. Great pick!
#2 I don't like the crop. Too much unmeaningful space on the left.

Thanks all for your comments, she is a sweetie although speaks basically no English so my wife was directing. Was a cool place to get to shoot.

Nice photos but #2 is my pick. The offset give a sense of the environment without distracting from the subject.

I'm not a great fan of "rules" in photographs, but I'm going to invoke one anyway -- the second shot doesn't quite work for me, and in trying to understand why I am drawn to the rule of thirds. By my eye, the rule-of-thirds corner in the second places the center of attention in the girl's right eye, while a crop that placed it in the left eye would have the bulk of the girl (for want of linguistic elegance on my part) within the four corners of the rule-of-thirds box. I imagine that that would have the effect of drawing you "in" instead of propelling you "out" of the photo. But that may all be BS.

I like #2--it draws attention to the face and the beautiful expression. The raised foot on #1 casues some distraction to my eyes.

Mark,
I like um both very much, my fave is no 2, I like the space and the way you have softened the background. Brilliant.
Mark
