very very stylish, i think i would have liked more space on the right, but all it needs is a black boarder to give that,
lovely portrait

I love the hint of colour and the V3 mono. They all have a different atmosphere about them, and they're all beautifully done.

I thought there is no way I'll like the other two versions better than the first. But I think I may slightly prefer V2. All exceptional though.

i liked yesterdays shot, but this one is better if you dont mind me got the lighting just right here, not too bright on her skin, lovely skin tones, eye contact and pose, and again i prefer the de-saturated V1

i sort of agree with NEWMANP about having a bit more space on the right though, but thats just being picky as its a really lovely portrait that i bet she's dead pleased with

Its no 1 for me, a lovely image.
May I ask about post processing? There are a few people on here who have this wonderful ability in producing stunning portrait shots, that look extra special I would include you and Laura Ferreria plus others. I would love to learn more about the way you produce and process images like this one. Angi

I'm with you on 'hint of colour' thingie, v.1 works the best for me too, they're all just great though. Congratulations on your HC, it's so worth it.

Must admit that I prefer your manips Jo, but there's a real quality running through all of these recent portraits. Definitely more than one string to your bow, and well done on the HC.

Congrats on the HC!

This is something very special, it has a very 16/17th Century painting feel, a nice sense of Chiaroscuro such as Caravaggio or Rubens may have used, it is a simply wonderful portrait.

Now the bra... it doesn't marr the shot, but i do wonder what it would have looked like without it. Really nice work Jo.
