I find #3 to be a bit disturbing.

The subject in #6 has the best story to tell.

But I must object to the pose in #3. It may be fine for a family album, but not for a wide audience--too suggestive. (And I realize I'm going to hear 'Speak for yourself!' on this.)

A good portrait tells a little story about its subject. Just some photos here can achieve this. Some say nothing to me. I'm just honest.
Vote for 1.

Youre right. Just thought the same. A hint of erotic in this photo. Too much at all I think.
Sorry
