I like how the light looks more prominent in the edited version..but I prefer the natural more subdued tone in the wood on the floor in the 2nd shot. Thanks for posting both. Its always interesting to see!
not sure what you used to straighten out the back wall (i'm assuming the warp tool since the windows a little inconsistent) - but there's a feature in ps that you can use to fix perspectives like this. let me know if you wanna learn more.
I just love the edited version and I could only prove that if you would have heard my ahhhh when I first looked at it :-) for more reasons: the sunrays above the window are visible, I like the dark orange of the shades on the wooden floor, so intense and I think the sun is often like that in reality, her shilouettes are swimming in the same color which i find beautiful. Better contrast, more depth. I think anyone who havent seen the original would beleive the first is not edited at all. And what a beautiful model you have :-)
A little of FILL in light on the person would have made a difference,the flash off the camera at the side with a cable, but the old saying practice, practice, and more pratice

Yes , sometimes we need to change the saturation, brightness or anything else, but in this case the best is the original. Try, not to pass trough the natural colours . Nice composition ! What you use for editing?
i prefer the edited version- i'm an addict for supersaturated photos, but i think it might have been a *tiny* bit too much, especially around the girl's arm. the key is to make it look vivid- but real.
you've MASTERED aligning the geometry of the architecture with the photo's frame. i still cannot achieve that perfectly-parallel look, and i've been avoiding architecture for that very reason.
