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

prefer the whole version more definite
Nope. I like the cropped version better. Well done.
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.
... you may consider it better than the original, though I feel it loses something?

I like both! Nice job!
uncropped adds attitude, which compliments the expression. either way, quite a face.
Well, opinions seem pretty equally divided between the two so far. Frankly, that is my case too! Many thanks to all.
better with the hand, imho. makes it more candid and gives it more personality.
either way, it's a well done shot!
Without the hand draws you more to her pretty face. Bravo again !
I like the full frame. She is art unto herself, and you've captured her well, John.
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?
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...
Cropped - better - nuff said . . .ok ok - I'm in love!
Thanks Raymond, that's the one I went for too ...
I like the cropped version much better. I'm really drawn into her eyes in it, much less in the uncropped image... Lovely Indeed!
