for the 2nd imagine it was in direct sunlight so I exposed to bring the sky out on my camera but then editing it and raise the exposure on it, I think this is whats has caused the grain.

I think #1 has too much wasted space, I'd crop in tighter.
She looks a little sunburned in #2.


-- Image Editing OK --

I really like the lighting in #1, although I'd crop it to portrait orientation. For #2, can you darken the shadows and/or reduce the highlights on her dress to bring in a bit more detail and contrast? As far as grain, I'm not seeing it and I highly doubt anyone else will in a small or large print.

Number 1 I like, but too much wasted space as has been noted, number 2 way too soft...

In number 2, whatever that thing is to bottom left draws me.

I like #1, great feel to it along with good light. I would leave the orientation as is but get rid of some of the head room.

#2 works for me. Noise could definitely be the problem with the processing you mentioned. Fill flash would have been a better choice.

Nice subject, but your posing needs work. I'd suggest looking up some posing guides from the likes of Clay Blackmore or Doug Gordon.
Make an 'S' curve with the body for women and it will flatter their figure...weight on the back foot, slight turn away from the camera, head back towards the camera...they'll look MUCH better.

I like #1, I don't know if I would change anything. Just personal taste I guess. I am not too sure about #2.
