Without knowing the intent of the shot, I'd have to go with the first one.  It gives the viewer a better look at her, and the clothes and shoes.  I would prefer her facial features to not be parallel to the bars though.  The washed out look doesn't work well for me here.  I think deeper blacks and crisper details would push the image further along the direction I think it needs to go.  But that is personal style preference.

I like the first one also. It gives the feeling of the model trying to escape. I don't like the washed out look either, primarily because the face is the most washed out place. It feels like back lighting. If the face is clear, I can see it would be better.

The top one... it looks like you're gnawing at the bars. It might be a bit stronger as far as pose goes, but the gnawing thing is silly.

The bottom one... I think this is the stronger shot from an emotive point of view.

First one , you can see the llamas facial expression better. I like the colors in both. Great work!
