I think it's interesting that you chose the same exact pose from two angles! I agree that your eyes really stand out in the first "bird's eye" shot! Other than your smile, wonder what about your body pose/the framing/the photo in the second shot makes you feel like you are less happy in the second picture.
Perspective changes the way I view myself. From different ways the camera faces me, I look like a different person. From the bird's eye view you can clearly see my colored eyes which is hard to see from different angles. Also, I had the same pose in both pictures and you can see the pose better from the Bird's view. The Woman's View makes me look unhappier than I really was taking this picture. My smile looks pretty fake and I look unhappy, I was caught off guard. I still liked this picture so chose it anyways. I think the way my head is tilted, my serious face and my body posture give me this unhappy look. In the Bird's Eye picture I am sitting up straight while in the Woman's View my body looks sort of slumped and more of a tired look.
