I don’t know... Looking at the camera type self portraits just don't really do it for me. How about one that looks like it was captured the moment you are lost in thought or doing something , those feel more natural and artistic i think.
the 2nd, 3rd and 4th maybe would have been great if only the cropping is correct plus on the 4th the hair was distracting in your face... the 1st photo loved it... it's a bit of alone, mysterious and captivating... the cropping can be acceptable... the composition wise great...
Im a professional, and it's immediate that 1 and 2 are the best options. I'm torn. 1 has better lighting and composition (even though you're centered, the lines lead you into it, and it has a modeling/fashion look.
But I like the color of 2 and it portrays story, however I dont like it's composition with you in the middle, seems off.
Personally I think that 1 or 2 are the best options as both are more intriguing to look at. Now breaking it down, while I like #2 because your pose is interesting to me (in a good way) I feel like the photo mostly draws your eyes to the corner of the photo and into the black background. On top of that the green lighting almost causes your black and red dress to blend in. #1 really stands out. being in the center of the tunnel allows the leading lines to draw the eye directly to you. Also with the yellow light against your dress, the object of the photo (aka you) really stands out from the surrounding.
