Both are fabulous, but the first is me wins for me with this striking pose and the ply with the veil. Perfect lighting too! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks a lot James! I also like the first one a little bit more. Maybe because  it is unusual for us to take photos from someone with a veil

Both are great...very slight preference for the second one.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to discuss the photo!

Very very different!! Das erste Bild ist absolut gelungen und somit wirklich sehenswert!!!

Beim zweiten Bild stören zumindest mich, die  -   zumindest in der momentanen Situation der Aufnahme  -   "knochigen Ellenbogen", die nicht unbedingt zeigenswert sind.

Ich denke, dass hätte der Fotograf, der ansonsten, was die Ästhetik betrifft, es hier schafft Höchstleistungen abzuliefern, sehen können bzw sehen müssen.

To me, the first image is very strong and mysterious. The second one doesn't appeal to me for the same reason I've mentioned previously. I don't like contrived, unnatural hand and arm positions. Can you imagine walking down the street and seeing Lilly leaning up against a wall in this pose? What would your impression be?

Dare I say that the pose of the second portrait reminds me of a flamenco dancer. I feel sure that was not the intention, on the other hand I love the directness of the gaze in the first image which is absolutely first rate.

Werner, Brent and David, like always, thanks a lot for your time to discuss the photo! I always like these kind of discussion and I fully understand your points. One the one hand you have a more traditional photo where my focus was on her eyes. On the other hand you have the same model in a totally different pose (with bony elbows Werner) which is for sure not a natural pose. But you also have to see these two different photos in a context where the shooting took place. It was in Tehran and 20 m away from our location you had many women on the streets with a tschador. For Lily it was normal to take a photo with the veil, she knows how to emphasize her face and her eyes. And in the second phase of the shooting without the veil she very often just stretches her arms maybe like „I am feeling better“. And maybe this pose is also in contrast to the more or less traditional setting of the first photo.
