    I like the B/W - I definately noticed her eyes more and the background less.

    You all know how to work with the lighting so well for your portrait photography - oh, how I wish...

    I prefer the color version. The eyes have it.

    I like her look and the way you framed her. I think a little more technical work on the pictures could make both of them look so much better. To me the color and tones in both look a little washed out. Looks like you are shooting digital, if so play around with the curves and contrast. The black and white looks like you used channel mixer to convert? If so I would turn down the red add more green and blue so it looks just a little underexposed and then add a little contrast.

    is she naked?

    Definitely Black and white. The background is less distracting for some reason. It emphasises the subject more. Makes you look at her face, which is the whole idea, is it not?

    i think you should crop the photo a bit at the bottom. seems like you're showing the upper chest area for no reason since it doesn't actually go anywhere. and i like the B&W photo better too
