    What are you running these through in post?

    I like the first one's color tone better than the second. I think the crop on the second feels strange to me.

    Those are my two-second opinions. All that matters is that these photographs work on the way you want them to though.

    Very nice. I am curious about the post processing too.

    The background is a bit disturbing.

    Thank you for your comments!

    For post I used VSCO presets and some sharpening using a high pass layer on Overlay.

    I really like the first one. The second is fine but not as good.

    The reason I am not so keen on the second 1) prefer slightly warmer and 2) lighting and crop not as good as the first.

    Which VSCO preset?
