Beautiful portraits! I favor the B/W over the color one (at least a bit)!

TFS!

I think that the b&W pose is better than the colour one ..... but .... I really do not like b&w. I see in colour and, apart from the very occasional shot, feel that b&w only tells part of the story. For instance, in these pictures what colour is the lipstick, the dress, the eyes, the nail varnish, etc. all of which tell a story in themselves and which are told very well in picture one but are lacking in the really nice picture two.

So, yes, really nice shots but I would like to see the second one in colour.

Sorry if I have offended anyone but that is my personal POV and I hope everyone understands.

@ trainer Ken: To my taste this is not your best shot of this beautiful model.
With her fairly muscular and tanned arm, her face looks a bit small and pale. Also the softness of the skin on her face is a bit too much for my taste.

@ francis: The one from yesteday is a very stylish and creative portrait. Works well in B&W for me.

Francis for me personally I like my eyes on my portrait shots to be sharp. I just don't see the cyclops delivering that.

Agree.
I like mambo's pic. Perfect focus and lighting (albeit the screen reflection in the eyes is a bit distracting). What a good looking young man.

Francis, the last one is a bit ordinary (for you!). You've come up several excellent pics but the last one is just very good.
