Need help with deciding on b/w or color. Which one would you choose?
Any suggestions on image is fine too.

Both.

I guess brevity is not allowed, had to type at least 10 charactors.

BW

(Apparently spaces don't count as characters, either.)

I'd go with B&W.

Sandra,

What beautiful lighting you have on her. It really helps to show off that wonderful heart shaped face.

B&W is my vote.

What are you going to name this image? She looks like she is one of the "cat" from the play.

That is a STUNNING image. LOVE the black and white. I'd add a touch more contrast in the bw though.....it needs a smidge more brightness in the highlights....just my opinion though.

My vote is also with the BW and for comp, probably not add more contrast, the lights will bring out those highlights more. Kieth would know more but I'd be careful with her lower lip if you were to bring it up anymore.

Thank you all for your input. My husband chose the name for this one. He named it "Make Me". I found this girl working at a dress shop and knew she would photograph beautifully. I have done two shoots with her. Everything from girl next door to dramatic. She now works in a bank. She is every photographers dream model.

Hi Sandra;

If I were on the panel I'd give it an 82 at least. But I have an even better title. Your hubby's title would relect a look of defience. I would title it alluding to her hot look and call it "Smouldering". Here is how I see it being presented.

Thank you Craig,

I am most of the time at a loss for a name. I know how important that name becomes. I think Smouldering does suit her look. I like the way you presented it. I am new at competition (my second year). I spend more time with my painting than my photography competition. As you can see I do forget to put the copyright on. I do appreciate all the help you give me.
