    Budapest, July 2017.

    Two shots, different processing for both. Which is preferred?

    x-e2, 18-55 @55mm ISO 400, f/4.0, 1/680.
    pp in Luminar, then sharpened and vignette added in LR6.

    cc very welcome. Thanks

    The processing (grain) makes her legs look dirty in the first shot.

    I do like the crop in the first shot better...

    +1 to both comments. The combination of contemplation and intensity in the first shot crop is quite compelling but the grain and tone cast is offputting. I'd try the same crop with the second image and you might get the best of both. I also like the fact that the pedestrians are not in the second.

    Thanks for those suggestions. I'll try cropping the second version and see what it's like.

    ditto. 1st crop, 2ond processing. I am no fan of grain, and the yellow-green color cast does not help the first shot in my opinion

    Actually, the top of the photo could go just a bit above where it stops in the first crop? maybe? Is that 1st shot square? Maybe try 4 x 5 (w x h)?

    Interesting, I see it totally differently:
    Beautiful light, texture and colors in #1 – I very much like the processing! #2 looks way too soft and a bit boring to me.
    However, I'd probably try to desaturate the guys in the background of #1 – that blue shirt is too much of a distraction i.m.o.

    Final edit, Just different crops. Interesting the difference in 1:1 or 4:5. I like the 4:5 better, it removes the seat opposite the subject. Thanks for that suggestion.
    Really appreciate the feedback, thanks for taking the time.
