Better late than never! Giving someone a choice is to spoil them. I loved this portrait until I seen the uncropped version!

Hernest Ernesti Luchino
prefer the whole version more definite

Douglas Stemke
Nope. I like the cropped version better. Well done.

Bob Jarrell
There both are nice but I think the hand adds something special. I'm not sure what but I like the one with the hand much better.

John Peri
... you may consider it better than the original, though I feel it loses something?

Jayme Hall - Bardstown, KY
I like both! Nice job!

Michael Raddatz
uncropped adds attitude, which compliments the expression. either way, quite a face.

John Peri
Well, opinions seem pretty equally divided between the two so far. Frankly, that is my case too! Many thanks to all.

Filip Pizlo
better with the hand, imho. makes it more candid and gives it more personality.

either way, it's a well done shot!

Angel Pena
Without the hand draws you more to her pretty face. Bravo again !

Robert Farnham
I like the full frame. She is art unto herself, and you've captured her well, John.

Thomas Linn
The votes continue I agree with Angel...the cropped shot does focus you on her face. IMHO I think it is the better shot. John, do you know any non-photogenic women?

Michael Brown
The cropped version makes her look 10 years older, more sophisticated. Like the hair, but there is something about the ear-ring....too long perhaps? Nice picture as usual, even with clothes...

Rod Melotte
Cropped - better - nuff said . . .ok ok - I'm in love!

John Peri
Thanks Raymond, that's the one I went for too ...

Raymond Elstad
I like the cropped version much better. I'm really drawn into her eyes in it, much less in the uncropped image... Lovely Indeed!
