On the right is the 'ideal' face shape for a woman, computer generated, and based on mens' preferences. (The relevant study is summarised in The Telegraph https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/11502572/Are-these-the-most-beautiful-faces-in-the-world.html and surely other newspapers too.)
I posted pictures of both the female and male 'ideal' face so that we could compare the two. As you can see, the woman's face is quite wide, but has a narrow jaw, i. e. a heart-shaped face, whereas the man's face is narrower and slightly longer overall.
The reason I'm asking this question is that, men's preferences in this study (and in others I've seen) are for a heart shaped, i. e. quite wide in the cheeks, face for a female, whereas on this site, I've seen quite a few people saying they like long, thin faces, like this type of shape:
Although lots of models, for example Miranda Kerr, Kate Moss, Daphne Groeneveld, and the model below Miranda.
Several photographers I know (they do fashion, lingerie and art nude, their work has appeared in British magazines) tell me that wider faces (coupled with a narrow jaw, like Miranda and the other model above) photograph better than long, thin ones, which aren't very good for photographs.
Why do you think that some people like long, thin faces?

Going through your photos - I tended to favour the rounder wider face, I thought I might go other way but when I left it to instinct I picked wider face1
