    Took this last night in the shade while the sun was setting. All I did was crop the photo and slightly adjust the overall color to be more correct. What do you think about it?

    I think the selective colour is ruining it for me. Maybe colour instead? Or a different, film-like treatment like tin-type?

    I don't think its creepy at all. Its a beautiful young lady and its a nice shot. But I will say as a general rule of thumb I don't get excited about selective color. So I don't like it, but I almost never do. I'd ask your family and friends to get a final decision. Maybe show them a full color, B&W, and then this one. See what they think, cause they'll be the ones who will see it up on your wall or whatever.

    I like it, but the blue looks a little too light.

    I really like the color version. Not crazy about selective color, not just with this, but with most any shot. Her expression is very strong in the color version, and I think the selective color detracts from it.

    Thank you for the comments. I like selective coloring but I see how the colored version looks better.

    Great photo. I have to agree with most here that I like it in full color best. I like being able to see the pink cheeks and lips and the color on her top really helps. You captured a great expression and her eyes are crisp and spot on! The catchlights are great. Nothing really to criticize. Nice job.

    Thank you. One of the reasons I put in black and white it because the mom thought the top was little distracting. However, I agree that it looks better in color. :)

    Anyone else?

    I like the color best. It could look good in B&W too, but the version you have is a little flat.

    Would it look better in B&W if I bumped up the contrast?
