#2 is the better overall shot. #1 the branches in front center detract too much from the image. There are also small branches in #2 going across the torso, but they're much less noticeable. Still a great set overall.

I prefer the pose and mood of the first one, but I agree that the branches are a bit distracting. It got me thinking "what lenses delivers that kind of bokeh? It looks like the 21 except for the FOV" but seeing as it's the 55, there must have been many many branches around her.

Personally I don't find the branches distracting, I think they add to the overall feeling, but I can understand that they are not for everyone. Photography is subjective, it wouldn't be fun otherwise It is always good to get other peoples opinion regardless, to build on.

I like the first most, the branches give a bit off a voyeuristically / paparazzi feel to it as if you weren't suppose to be there, adds some tension to the photo. So in my opinion an appealing photo. Last one is great to looking at the lighting and the way the background makes the model pop to the foreground.
