Comparing color to black & white is like comparing apples to oranges :lmao:
 
do you like apples or oranges :)
 
Yes I do. But pleases don't ask me witch I prefer. Because it would be like apples to oranges :lol:
 
The second is vastly superior. The first one is simply lousy in a bunch of ways, the second is quite good.

You got the flash off-axis, and in fact straight into Rembrandt position, or very close. The dramatic chiaroscuro works well with the "almost Rembrandt" lighting, but of course you'd want some fill or reflection with a more modern look. You've separated the model from the background in the second, as well.

The camera angle feels slightly low in the second one, though. Maybe just a hair. It DOES create an impression of tallness in the subject and it's not like we're looking up her nostrils, but you might consider a slightly higher camera position.
 
thanks Amolitar :)

Do you like apples or oranges?
 
In this case, I like oranges, and would politely refuse your apple ;)
