    Hi! :)

    I can't decide which I like better. The b&w version or the second with the brown wash over it...

    Which do you prefer?

    I Prefer the B&W. The contrast makes her stand out from the wall.

    I'm definitely feeling the black and white more.

    Can't go wrong with the Black and White but I like it how her face features stands out more with the brown finish. I pick the brown one.

    Doesnt matter what you are trying to use the picture for????

    I think they are both cool but you could kind use them to say different things?

    But If I had to pick I say Number 2!

    I find the bw makes her look like she has no legs. They blend in too well. The brown wash evens it all out so she more than a torso.

    Thanks for all the input guys! Much appreciated! ;)
    The mood of the image changes too, to me, from hard to soft...

    I think that's what you're referring to as well? Or am I wrong?

    B&W ALWAYS STANDS over SEPIA toned.....sepia tone give a look of 30s while b&w is always good....however in ur pix i liked the both because of her dress and mood....keep up.
