The first one really does nothing for you. It's badly cropped/framed and the focus seems off.

I rather like the second one, though that one is also cropped badly (way too close to your eyebrow). I like the eye contact and overall expression you have.

The are both out of focus. (blurry) The second would be better with a little less of that arm covering your pretty face. The first is not very flattering.

Just my worthless opinion.  Best of luck to you! Keep on shooting and try to work with better shooters when possible.

This sums it up pretty well

not a big fan of either, sorry.
I do not like the glamour blur type editing done on the first and the pose isn't that great.

If I had to pick which I thought was a better, more flattering photo, it would definitely be the second one.

The first image does you no benefit. Would make a great class discussion on how not to shoot a model.
Recommend: taking away from this a sense of what is not working on how you present to the camera and work from there. The best models know how to present/angle themselves to the camera in order to capture their best image.

they are very bad and pretty bad respectively.  Too bad your arm is infront of your face in the avatar shot it would have been sooooo much better with out it

Ditto.  The second one has potential but the arm kills it.
