    Shot this one today at home. I asked wifey to stand in front of the window (it's overcast, and raining), and tried to blow out the background as much as possible, while maintaining proper exposure on her face.

    Thoughts? I think it was pretty successful, but who knows.

    Very successful in my opinion. Nice shot, what does it look like in colour ?

    Ok nice. I think I prefer b/w as the colour version seems to be over saturated. Great b/w shot though. Which do you prefer ?

    Very nice shot. I prefer the B/W photo too. Very good composition.

    I like both, but the B&W shot appears to be much more flattering, IMO.

    Mission accomplished.

    I find the pose distracting with the raised hands & also agree the colour version is way over saturated. Love her big eyes.

    nicely done...looks like you accomplished what you set out to...and well.

    i think the ONLY little nitpick i have, and might just be an opinion...i think i would close up that aperature just a tad so your DOF is slightly deeper. again, purely personal opinon.

    nice shot!

    AWESOME ... B/W is good but the color one is really neat as well.
    did you do anything in PP to get her eye color match her shirt?

    On the color one, I didn't do anything to make the colors match (intentionally, anyway).

    Thanks, all!
