I like the B&W also -- but I think it looks a little soft compared to the color shot. It's probably due to level compression -- there's not much at either end of the histogram. I'm sure you played with different conversions...I took it into CS3 locally and when I started to play with it I noticed the difference in brightness of her arms makes for a challenge at higher contrast. If you want to see what I ended up with, I'll post it with your permission.

Naperville, eh? I'm not far from you at all...Glen Ellyn.

Thanks anyway Chuck,
but I don't really like my stuff messed with by someone else. Good or bad I like it the way I created it and that's just the way it is.

Wow. Hard choice. I like them both but what really is the high point in both photos is her eyes! The pop in both renditions and really draw the viewer in. Either one is a keeper in my opinion.

Good day sir!

No problem at all, Matt. Didn't mean to imply that my conversion was better -- just a different take on it.

Thanks Mike and Chuck.
Chuck,
It's OK I just think of my finished work as just that "Finished" The way I wanted it.and someones elses way is what they should do on their work. I see you don't have very many shots of your own on your web site but a couple models from a work shop. How long have you been a photographer around here, I just don't recall ever running in to you?

Matt

I like the color version even though the B & W shot is nice.
