Greetings from Split, Croatia!

I was recently doing shoot with my girlfriend, who also happens to be my most used model and muse. We took this set of photos and disagree widely on which ones are the best ones. I like the ones with wet hair and she thinks they look terrible and she looks terrible. What do you think? Thanks for your feedback.

Regards,

Daniel Jones

After years of marriage the correct answer is always " you are right sweetie" :)
But my personal favorite is the one without her hair wet just because of the way the back lighting filters through her hair

tell her she is RIGHT!

as others have said, the expression on the first is better, pose is a little better.

the wet hair is okay but just a little off, maybe another frame is better.

I get the smile humour, but I think it looks better on an even tighter crop - and that would be my preference - #2, with a tighter crop, slight increase of exposure on her face with a few small edits because of the tighter crop.

If the OP has an any issue with my crop/edit in order to give my #2 vote - I will remove it.

Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

It gets a bit noisy cropped at that amount, but, better framing indeed. I have the same shot at different compositions, some tighter, so maybe I will use one of those. The focus was much better on #2. Thanks.

Your girlfriend is right. As you already know lighting and processing might be better, but that is not the point.

Both pictures are of a strong and beautiful woman of impeccable character her choice in men notwithstanding.
