I really really can't decide. I wanted to do this set in B&W but I'm loving the colours....

Please help!

I'm thinking B&W as well, the skin tone just looks a bit creepy with the towel in color.

Do you like your chocolate with almonds or without? Both!:)
B&W but only because the color seems to be slightly off.

The color version, my eyes go straight to the towel.

The B&W, straight to her eyes/face.

Nice shot

Try B&W with color on lips.

Of the original ones posted, the B&W. The color would work but not with that processing. Needs to be softened up, imho. (less contrast, slightly darker...etc.)

I like the original color version. Nice effect. I would desaturate the towel slightly.

Colorizing the lips looks cliche.

It's a nice shot, but my 2 cents is either make it a B&W or make it full color. The "sorta" color shot doesn't really work for me.

hmmmm, very mixed messages.

Sorry miniphotog, I don't really like your edits ><

I hate selective colour lol.

so to achieve the colour original of this image, I did all my BW processing and then backed it all off to 60%, that gave me the "colour" image.
