thumbs down on both. Your port has no need for these- and it looks like you have had a caesarean

My preference is number 2 too. Makes the image more about you than the space you're occupying.

You have better already - but number 2 is the better one in my mind.  You fill the space well - and the first one - there is little that the scenery adds to the image - so why have it? if it does not enhance you and your pose?

There is nothing wrong with your scar.
For  what it's worth, I'm with everyone else - I prefer the tighter crop.

sorry, i vote neither.  the arms are unnaturally tight to the head giving a very static appearance to the image.

Although the tighter crop is appealing I prefer #1 with that great curvy line through the body from head to toe. I'm also enjoying the bit of setting I get, it adds a nostalgic and exotic touch.

I didn't realize it was a scar; I thought it was an indentaiton left by a recentlly removed undergarment.

I like both but the second crop is a better overall image.

#2 as well, though #1 could have held the merits of composition and full body. But it's clogged with randoms bits that compete with the model for attention.

While in #2, the nice bokeh bkg draw us to the model. And back, and back again...

I say the first one, nut it needs to be cropped, your expression is better on the first.

This. smile

(though I also agree that it might be nicer without the lines on the stomach area, whatever their origination. They're just distracting. This is the same reason why some people shoot "strip" sets in reverse, so lines from tight clothing don't show.)

You are shooting DX aren't you? The background is very busy and it is way too sharp. One of the biggest drawbacks to DX is you are forced to work with lenses of shorter focal length, and therefore, greater depth of field. In order to get soft backgrounds you have to work with larger apertures. Since most people who are shooting digital are using slower zooms, you are forced to go with smaller apertures, again, with greater depth of field. Also, I find her face too dark, it could stand a little lightening too so it matches the tone of the rest of her body.

All is not lost though, it can be fixed in Photoshop by selecting the background and using the box blur tool. Just make sure you don't hightlight right along the outline of the model or it will blur that too and ruin the image.
