I like no. 2 best, she looks a bit serious in the others and it balances the context nicely. Dingo, maybe she was cold?

Thanks Rob

Yes the library is one of the oldest in Ireland - not much in the way of heat

As they stand, No.1 is my favourite out of the set. I see this set as a beginning rather than an end product.
The main couple of reasons/observations
It seem as though you have metered the whole scene and having placed the librarian in front of the window to make best use of available light, with her fair skin this has led to her being over exposed in my opinion. Either spot metering on her face or dialling in exposure compensation would have helped here. My next major thought revolves around the choice of pose. She is a librarian in a library, perhaps she could be looking in a book, glancing up from a book, slotting a book into a book shelf, experimenting with different poses could pay dividends I think.
A nice set with room for further development and improvement. She seems to be very amenable to being photographed so maybe you will give her another try.

Thanks Nigel

I hadnt said what camera I used for the shots - namely the Pentax Q and 01

As you probably know its dynamic range itsnt great and highlights can get blown out easily. That being said I am enjoying the Q for environmental shots and its probably a camera I will use more often

Granted but I think the Q has down well in other areas - im going to try spot metering next time and try and dial in some exposure -1

The great thing abut the Q is subjects are usually more relaxed in front of it than if you get out a full blown DSLR. The librarian certainly appears relaxed about proceedings in these shots.
