Well...I do prefer this version. Just a problem to fix: neck and left part of face are too dark IMHO. Next time look at for a better light-position of model

It works, but the original BW is better IMO.

I don't know how much of the original shot you have to work with, but have a try at straightening the horizon for another version.

You've captured a very important element - personality.

Mac, she's standing on a slope, see the B & W version. You'll have her falling over!

IMO,Both images are fine as they were produced. The slope and the converging row lines are the anchor here bringing viewers eye directly to your sisters pretty face. Color vs. Mono becomes Tomato-Tamato. The deep shadowing on the face adds to the look of unposed happenstance (- if she was holding a single daisy old-timers might think image was taken at Woodstock in the 60's) -- well captured. thanks tg

Thanks for your feedback, I will lighten the photograph a bit as this is the original, just cropped. It's slightly too dark around her neck where as the b&w was lightened. Great comments though, thanks so much for taking the time!
