The BW is a clear winner here. You got a very honest portrait here from an intriguing subject. Excellent!

I really like the B&W version of this image. I for one do not consider freckles to be a flaw, but rather an accent! She is beautiful!

Same here. Beautiful images of a beautiful girl. And her freckles really accentuate her beauty. Well done.

The B&W really pops out. Very nice job transitioning. Love it!

One of the things I love about this forum (and others here on FM) is that not only do I get to see wonderful photographs and gain information as well as inspiration, but I often get introduced to photographers I've never heard of.

As a woman, when I look at this post, and the Liedtke work that deinfaces linked to, I have tremendous empathy for these women, and how tough it must have been for all but the thickest-skinned of them to handle growing up in a society that places its highest values on physical perfection and flawlessness. Women can act tough, but inside, self-doubt and self loathing can really take a toll. I can't say whether deinfaces' model is using her tats as a deflection mechanism. I think I understand what you are going for and yours is a B&W project. I will say that the color version is more soft and flattering - only by the standards of today's mainstream views on beauty or attractiveness. I have yet to finish my first cup of coffee, so I am not sure this even makes sense!

I should add that I find it very interesting and a bit refreshing that the men commenting here like the B&W image.

Geez, how'd I miss all the fun? Too late to vote now. Well done on this one and so many others. Keep it going, Bob.

Thank you, Zorro, chrono, and Jim.
Sharon, wow, such an insightful post - eight months after posting! Glad that you find meaning in Fritz Liedtke's work.
