I think I like the cropped version the best. Both are very nice though. Looks like it was a fun shoot even with the problems and time constraints. On the cropped version though, it looks like the eyes were over sharpened or something. They look like there is something not right there. The over sharpening is a guess on my part.

I like the cropped version, although I may have cropped a bit more off the top of the hat. Nice shot!

Both are great but the cropped pictrue pulls you in and draws you to the eyes. I like it. The eyes almost become the subject.

Sonny,
If in doubt, crop. In this category of photography 90% of the viewers can care less about the area around the subject.

In my view the cropped version is more pleasing, but while emphsizing the eyes causes it to show a bit too much P'shop work on the eyes. I find that damaging. I think my choice would be to split the difference in the two versions' crop.

Cropped without a doubt. In the cropped version her face grabs your attention and doesn't let it go, very powerful image. In the uncropped version there are places for the eye to wander, doesn't command your undivided attention.
