spt




here's what i like about my black and white photo:

i don't see the ruddiness of my complexion that comes across in color photos;
i think my face looks thinner (less bloated);
i don't see as much gray in my hair;
my lipstick reflects a lot of light

here's what i don't like about my black and white photo:

i can't see the green/hazel of my eyes;
my pink hair looks gray;
i can't see the color of my light-reflecting lipstick;
i feel like i've taken way too many spt's sitting at my desk;
and... you can't tell that i am actually wearing my orange shirt in this photo!!

I think you look great in both pictures.
But i do like the color one a little better. Because we can see how green your pretty eyes are.

Sandi said...

How nice to be young and cute no matter whether it is color or black and white. Aww the good old days.

Barb said...

I like the comparison idea you did. I'm a fan of the color pictures, but you're right, there are some advantages to black and white. Great lipstick color!

michelle said...

Cool comparison. I love black & white, especially in pictures of me, I think it is flattering.

Jenny said...

I too enjoy the comparison. It's funny because I think black and white seem to make us look more flawless as well.

Jill said...

I like the black and white, but I love your lipstick color! Do share - what is it?

Thanks for a fun spt!

Jennie said...

Thanks for a great challenge. I love blk & white. I think the lack of colors makes for a more interesting picture sometimes. By the way, I love your own b & w photo and the spt challenges.

Thanks Lelly! I love this SPT!

Elizabeth said...

You look great in both.!

Jill said...

I like both photos of you and your reasons for liking both. It's interesting.

Marla said...

I also think B&W tend to look more classic. I think we might do our family pics in B&W this year....

Becky Porter said...

Just discovered your site. Thanks for the great idea! I like both pics of you.

I finally did it~ although I used last weeks subject. Sorry. I love the idea of black & white. I am just computer challenged.
I like both of your pictures~ they are great.

Rachel said...

Black and white is always classy, but the color photo of you is beautiful!

michelle said...

oops! sorry, that "mic" was me, hitting enter before I was finished!

Holly said...

This was fun Lelly! A girl always has to have options, right--even between B&W and color. I think both of your portraits are great. Your eyes are so vibrant!

Emmanuelle said...

Oh, you look really pretty on both pictures. Black and white or color, I like it as much on you. On myself, I usually prefer black an white. But I most often don't like picture of myself.

Amy said...

I love that you put the color on the bottom. STrikingly different (and fun to see the famed orange shirt!)...

Claudissima said...

hey i think that is a cool comparision just like michelle said, but what struck me most...is your profile picture with this one...soooooo serious!

Claudissima said...

ups..did you change your photo now?

Amanda :-) said...

I still think your pink stripe is superb! What a stroke of genius that was.

It's good to see both types of shots, to compare. It's six of one, and half a dozen of the other, isn't it?

Va va voom. I love black and white photos. Sad I missed this SPT. Keep em' coming!
