    Hey guys:

    Here's a photo I made from a recent shoot with Juliana. It was inspired by a pop art image of Marilyn Monroe.

    Please note the word inspired. It's not supposed to be an exact replica. But I'd like your thoughts on the execution and color scheme.

    This is the original version, using the color scheme from the reference.

    This is a desaturated version. Juliana's feedback was that she thought the original version was a LGBT pride image, which was not my intention, so this version is less vibrant.

    And here is just a different color scheme all together.

    Thoughts please, and thank you!

    Edit:

    Here is a compromise. I've brightened the eyes, tweaked some of the colors and desaturated just a little. Thoughts?

    the desaturated image is nice. definitely a keeper.
    not really digging the purple. makes her look like an oompa loompa.

    The first two work for me. In fact I like yours much better than the image linked to.

    I vote for number one. Not really into the second or third image.

    The first for me, although the eyes seem a little "dark" and hence a little lifeless.
    But the colours work for me on that one. Second one is too bland for the idea.
    Third is too purple.

    My 2 penn'orth.

    Would never have crossed my mind. That being said, I like the 2nd one best.

    agreed.
    never would have thought LGBT if it had not been brought up. my first thought was artsy.
    someones a little insecure or sensitive about it maybe?

    looks pretty good, but you never post full sized images so its really hard to take a good look.

    but really like #2 you posted.

    Haha, it's just so much easier to upload a screen shot, because of the file size limitations.

    Well, actually.... she is bisexual haha, so that might be part of it.
