    I like how it is overexposed. It bleaches out any detail in her bright white shirt and really draws your focus to her face. Not a conventional portrait with the overexposure, but very nice none the less. I like it.

    Thank you!

    To tell the truth there is a little post processing going on. Originally this was a color image, I ran it through Picasa with a yellow filter for the black and white conversion and then I added a very light glow (Which accounts for the over exposure).

    This is the original image:

    The image actually works very well in B&W but it's too mid-tone rich, and, as mdsoares mentioned, slightly over-exposed.
