    The colour is certainly stronger in the newer image. It's hard to say how to improve it because it really depends on what you want to do with the photo and what message, if any you are trying to put across to the viewer.

    I would say it was leaning towards an emotional and somewhat lost expression. A lot of the time, portraits with this are very fitting in black and white or sepia so maybe give that a try.
