John, Another vote for the cropped version, I think it's more intimate. They are both good though, this is a really great moment. Again :)
taken just a few days ago actually ... it was yesterday I put it on the computer, I'm going gagga .. :-) anyway, best wishes to all !
I agree with Ricardo:))) The sofa gives me some backgroud to stick to:))) Anyway both versions are interesting.
excellent expression an tones. but think the photo is a bit grainy.
Get maried John before.. the sooner the better,she is lovely and it seems that it is for you she is lovely att the moment... hurry upp!! 77/77

Hi John: Good Portrait, I prefer the wide crop perhaps a litle bit to the left. Beautifull girl!! Regards Ricardo
I wonder if a tighter crop is interesting .. ?
Very lovely and photogenic model here.
i like the cropped one ;) i am not allowed to give you a 7 :(
John Lovely!!! 7/7 Alberto
What a beautiful face!! I like the tighter crop, and would be tempted to pull even closer.
This model has a very sexy smile! She's not really smiling, but her mouth is, relaxed,... sexy! Love the candidness of this shot. Hands, fingers, eye lashes, hair, skin, pillows ... all of it makes the picture. John's lighting helps a little too, hmph hmph yeah! She's beautiful!!!!! and you depicted her so!!!!!!
Thank you all. She will be pleased too
Very expressive and beautiful girl.
Definitely the cropped version.. Her expression, and pose don't need the distraction of the larger frame. Beautiful shot.
Realism Great Black and white photograph. Everyone is so right, tone, light, plus the fabulous natural black hair of the model.The larger picture is superior, the cropped one lessens the good points.
Great work Simple but highly effective
Dear John, this is a masterpiece, the girl's personality is all there: sweet, sexy, intriguing, smart, rebel, captivating, funny. Great timing. I love the confidence she has in front of your lens. The cut you posted doesn't work, it's too tight and "airless". Beautiful B&W tones. Maybe it needs a bit more exposure on the face, but it will be difficult to improve this perfect shot. All the best
Ha, thank you Antonio .. I see all the same qualities in the photo as you do ... :-)
Taken yesterday ... .. after dark
