I like the first one better, she has a lovely smile no need to hide it. Just my opinion though.

The lighting is good, but I think the skin smoothing is a bit excessive IMHO

The Girl got what she got from mom and dad. Be proud of it. Post what she looks like without the skin processing.

The over processed skin really contrasts with the lack of lipstick, and that her neck is completely untouched. Especially in the second one. It looks like the processing is only half done. The smile is definitely much nicer.

I agree I love natural pictures, maybe remove the odd spot.
Can you post the original.
Pass on my congratulations.

I also think it #1, remove the loop of her ear-ring ...... it keeps drawing my attention.
