Jen both are great but the masculine edge of B. Very cool.

I like A best. Something about the edge on the photo on B makes her head seem chopped. I am wondering what if would look like if you lost the line on the photo and made it larger so it seems like it is framed in white. Does that make sense. Just a thought. :)

I like the text and photo layout of A, very clean feeling. The only thing I must play with is swapping out the photo. Something about her head getting cut off in the middle of the card bothers me.

This was a tough one, but I voted B. It feels more bounded & finished, which I like. Lovely!

I'm in the minority, but I chose B. It feels more finished and the border on the photo compliments your typography nicely. I also like A, but like others suggested, maybe swap the photo. I think what's unusual about this photo is that the sky blends into the white space so it appears seamless, so it makes her cropped head more obvious. Oh and just read Chris's suggestion for b. I like that too!
