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.
