№12. With white on top cut off is fine.

For human like portraits in BW, check Jane Bown and Yousuf Karsh.
You could try free Nick's collection from google for BW conventions.

IMO.
The rest is... how girls are saying it... yeoou. Halloweenish. Where is nothing to like in over processing with degraded image quality.
IMO.

First things first - the image is flat and B&W rarely benefit from that. You decided to make a random image BW and the choice was wrong here :]

D***, some of the following edits in this thread. Please, stop. Overprocessed with plugins and necessary effects. It is perfectly allright to play with them at your leisure, but don't post them as legitimate suggestions ;]

And I am not even in a grumpy mood here.

Precisely. If my opinion is negative about overprocessing an image, it cannot voiced out? Do we now accept only positive critique now?

I appreciate your input...I do very much enjoy other people's takes on my photo, as I'm new to editing and I find it fun to see what other people can do with it. I enjoy viewing them all. :-)

Did Dago or I say that you weren't welcome to opinion? Of course not, we just expressed our own opinion.

No, you can comment anything you like.

I would not have made my post if you weren't speaking authoritatively and as fact. The only fact is your opinion is your opinion only and doesn't make your right by default.

There are many styles of images and if they don't suit your taste, that is fine. Feel free to comment but do so knowing it's still only your opinion and not fact.

Hah, right in the feels, right in the feels!

What does "C&C" stand for in this thread's subject? I stated, that the newcomer should not consider other takes on the image as suggestions "how it should be", because, yes-in-my-opinion they are mostly overprocessed images, which do not benefit the image itself, nor the learning process.

Now you guys got all worked up, because you like your own creations and somebody said they ain't good. Come on. "Comment and Critique", Sirs, "Comment and Critique". The thing, that you like your own edit, doesn't make it good - The Fact.

Of course, everybody is welcome to post "My take on this" comments - why not. I just pointed to the OP, that, in this particular thread, they should not be considered as advice how to do things. That was the second point. In the first one, as you surely remember, I said why most likely it won't succeed - image is on the flat side.

Olafs you are blowing this thing waaay out of proportion. No one said that you couldn't C&C here. I get it: you don't like the photo and you don't like the edits that have been presented as possible interpretations of the photo. I GET IT. You have expressed your opinion and that is great. Another "fact" to be considered is the fact that: Just because you say the photo and the edits are not good doesn't make it so either.

I happen to disagree with you. I think that the picture is lovely and the edits presented so far(yes I have more!:-)) are excellent. These edits were provided merely to show the OP some ideas of what COULD be done with the photo, not what she SHOULD do with the photo. Unlike you however I will stop short of advising the OP to consider or not consider a particular editing style or idea that she may have to apply to the photo. She is free to edit as she chooses and so far at least, with the exception of my third post, she seems to like the edits that Dago and I have made.

For me the eye position and set of the mouth suggest the model is disgusted. Someone has kicked her puppy, is trying to rationalize the action, and she is having none of it.. Given that, I want a moderately gritty result from processing and a crop that leaves room for the her disdainful gaze.

That makes sense, the grittiness. If you look at the difference between the first photo I posted and then the second one that I converted to B&W, I had edited a few things with the second one and tried to make her mouth look a little less "frowny". I couldn't do too much to change it though
