Her first name is kind of unique, so I'll protect a little bit of her anonymity and call her just T for now. Anyway, I'll post the entire set when I'm done with them, this is just the first one I've processed. She's a dance major here in the midwest.

Full color or desaturated? I'm leaning toward desaturated.

She has a great face, and if you are taking votes, I strongly prefer the full color version.

+1... really like the color over the tinted image. Nice capture!

Great image and lovely model. The color version really does it for me. The desaturate image seems a bit too cool for my taste. However, that's just my personal preference.

full color is best although I would increase the contrast slightly. Just IMHO.

Prettiest Ford I have ev.....oops wrong forum.... Anyway back on track the second doesnt look desaturated to me looks more like you played with the contrast and brightness rather than saturation.

Thanks, guys. I'm still leaning toward the "desaturated" version myself, but I appreciate all the comments. Nobody has mentioned it, but I do have some shots without the back railing of the bridge running through her head. Even with that imperfection this was the strongest of the images taken at that location, I think.

For the processing, the images are the same with the exception that the "desaturated" one has a layer filled with a light blue (RGB = 0/18/44) and its mode set to exclusion. Contrast, brightness, and every other setting is identical. Pretty dramatic difference in the end result though. And I can't remember if I found that tip here or on a different forum, but it's quickly becoming my favorite action. I need to be careful to not overuse it.

Obviously I posted this one because I think it's a pretty good shot, but any additional comments are welcome.

Agree with others--you nailed the exposure and WB in the full color version. What's NOT to like!
