B/W Low Key Portrait - C&C Please
8

Hello! Second time posting on this forum. I usually convert my portraits to B/W only if the B/W version looks better or as good as the original version. With the studio-style portraits, especially with off-axis lighting, the original colors often look vibrant and gorgeous, and I had been unable to convert them into B/W to my satisfaction (i.e. To my eyes, the B/W versions do not look as good as the original ones). Until a few days ago, that is. Finally I was able to convert one of my images to B/W that looked pleasant to my eyes. But I left a hint of color. Below are the B/W version, and the original colored version. Please give me any feedback you have.

I am also very curious how other members of this forum might convert this image to B/W, if anybody has any extra time to spare.

TIA!
