I think the eye shadow and lipstick colors add to the image, so I say color. I am just not happy with the photoshopping effect, but that may very well have been your artistic intent.

The "color" shot wins, easily.

Hey there Dave,

Please expand on your thoughts about the Photoshoping, I would very much like to have your opinion on it, as to what exactly it is that is unappealing?

Thanks....

The skin is very very smoth, you have no texture on it, it's also a little flat (I thin the skintone is not right either)
Everything looks out of focus now.

I love the picture though... The model, the light, the colors, everything it's great.
I'm a manipulator, if you want I can work with the original for you.

I like the black and white best....On my monitor her skin tone in the color one appears to have the morgue drawer blues!!

Thanks for the replies so far everyone, my intention was to have the cooler, smooth skin, sort of a Vampira look with out the boobs…. I seem to have gotten my objective done the way I wanted judging by the responses.

Check the face thread for a warmer look with a different wrap on her head, and let me know what you think of that one if you like.

Thanks

I have to go with the color and agree with dave.

Further note...Have you ever seen a picture in a picture?

Looking into her eyes and crop a horizontal crop with just the eyes and expand your image to look at it further. That's intense.

I have to agree on the softness. It's an obvious filter effect that really takes away. However, that effect works better in the bnw version vs the color in your example. Sorry to hijack that.
