Cab distorted on any 21 will do at that angle and
viewpoint....and I'm not sure it works for me either...;-) That is one
of those 'is this anything? photos...' As to no. 2..thanks...far wall is
all windows...of course blow out...It helps, of course, that she is
drop-dead gorgeous. :-)

A couple of points on the main:
The tilt does not work for me.
Is that cab really that long, or is it
lens distortion at the corner ?

I like Alt 2 best.  I find the composition just
about perfect, even if the background is 
just a mundane office environment.  I might
lower myself just a tad to give less prominence
to the forehead.  Another point: it usually is
difficult to have the nose cross the far side of the face 
and looks good; it does in this case.  The exposure 
is perfect (unless there is details on the far wall, 
lost in the highlights). The edge of back light on 
her nose and face works very well for me.  Anyway,
the subject is very beautiful.  And Ted willl be pleased 
that you are shooting from the shadow side. :-)

My 2 cents.  In all likelihood my currency is different
from yours.
