#1 - nice, soft light, great "gesture"/pose appropriate for the mood I think you are trying to capture. In these types of shots (probably for many types), the background can make or break the image. For #1 the two "ropes" are distracting, especially the one on the right - it can be cropped out but then the eye is even more drawn to the one coming out of the top of her head. Still, a very nice portrait. #2 - the "ropes" again but even more of a distraction is the bright watch (our eye tends to go the brightest and sharpest part of the scene first) and, to a lesser extent, the triangle of something shooting out of the upper left edge, right where most people's eyes begin to enter an image. Again, a very nicely light, pensive, pleasing portrait with a very natural hand position.

Fully agree with Roger here. The face, pose and b&w all look great but the backgrounds do not support what counts. TFS Francis.
