Chrissy I tend to like the first shot for memories sake , you can see the detail of the dress and close look at the flowers but I like the 2nd shot for the composition .

I actually like one for composition AND memory - the flowers of the dress seem like an important component. And I think the bouquet pops a bit more in #1 too - maybe the contrast is a tad higher?

For sure number 1. Not only because the dress is a key theme or component of what the picture is all about but also brings the bouquet off the center. Good shots.

Too much background in #2. #1 is my choice.

#1 for sure. Great detail in both flowers and dress. Nice 'interesting' shot.

Thanks for the input everyone! Looks like #1 wins! :)

Gail, I see what you are saying about the grass head thingies, but I guess they don't really bother me since she is standing in the field. Do you think they are very distracting?
