Here's the same picture... just one in Color and one B&W...

Which one do you think looks best?

I like the color one best! Shows off your natural colors (hair, eyes, and lips) but of course they both look good.

Just my two cents...and I must say that it is that of an untrained eye...but in this case I prefer the color version. Generally speaking, I much prefer black and white, but in this case your natural coloration makes your eyes stand out better in the color version. The B&W version sort of washes out a bit for my taste, but that may be exactly what someone else loves about it. Therein lies the beauty of art.

You have a couple of B&W pictures in your portfolio (one by JT Smith and one by Mike Caldwell, I believe) that are really quite outstanding. I'm talking about stuff that would make me do a double take if I was flipping through a magazine waiting to catch a flight. In both cases, your eyes have just enough liner to make them come right out and pull you in. I am totally an "eye guy" and this one just doesn't grab me the same way.

But like I said, I'm just an inexperienced newbie, so take it with a grain of salt.

I'm a fan of B&W, but in this case I think the color version has a bigger impact.

Both are great, but I'm partial to the B&W one.

Thanks!!

I've grown partial to the color one as well!!

Doesn't it kinda remind you of Kate Moss?

Thanks so much!! And you are exactly right about the eyes with the color!!

The B&W does kinda flush me out.... I LOVE the color!!!!

Like I asked Lobo... doesn't it kinda remind you of a Rimmel ad that Kate Moss did?

Comparing yourself to Kate Moss...

At the risk of coming off as a major ass kisser, it really isn't fair to compare yourself to Kate Moss. I only vaguely recall the ad that you're talking about, as my real interest in glamour is relatively new.

I was never a huge fan of Kate Moss as she always appeared to be cold and disinterested in her shots. That may have been trendy or a hot look, but I am far, FAR more interested in a model that reaches through the lens and grabs the viewer's attentions. This would be the reason that I'm such an "eye guy".

The work that I've seen of yours has a much warmer, engaging feel to it. It would certainly be wrong to not give credit to the photographers that you've worked with, but it has to start with the person in front of the lens. So like I said, don't compare yourself to Kate Moss...it really isn't fair to poor Kate. (And Lord knows she already has enough troubles right now!)

Just my humble opinion...
