I chose black and white as it was a rather yellow party picture on high ISO. I would love to know about improvement ideas both as a portrait and on combinig the diptych. Does it appear imbalanced perhaps?

Both are beautiful portraits but I would prefer to see them separately - the imbalance that you mention comes from the differences in scale and focus. Individually I think they would be much stronger.

If you want to stay with a diptych, I would suggest placing the left shot on the right, and flipping the other shot horizontally?
Thank you for the comments. It is a great learning experience to see your work through someone elses eyes. And both your suggestions are better than my initial attempt.
I would move the left shot to the right but NOT flip the other
It would be fun to show her the flipped one and see if she notices
Two nice poses. On both shots, I note that there is a very shallow depth of field. The first has the focus on the edges of the subjects glasses, leaving the face blurred, the second leaving the necklace, midway, blurred.
With the absence of exif data, it's difficult to say what the camera settings were on, but I would guess at something like f3.5.
The photographs would have been better taken at an f stop of something like 5.6, to get a better depth of field, bringing the entire subject into focus.
I agree with the comment about single portraits, rather than the diptych presentation. A pass with noise removal would serve the images well.
