The warmer skin tones definitely work better with the mood of the image, although on my screen her blusher seems a bit too
warm now, and is the first thing I saw! Looking at the image like this, I'm now definitely leaning towards taking that lower leg out completely (despite what I said yesterday). With the warmer tones, it now seems to have too much of a presence (even though comparing the two images, it's no more there today than it was yesterday - weird!).
I think with the lower leg not there, the line from the guy's arm, her thigh and that wonderful billowing blue dress behind her is then unbroken and makes a much better shape.
The more I look at this one, the more I'm liking it
