He, he... was just an excuse to play with the pretty girl. But I checked on two monitors and still see the yellow-green tint in your pick. May be something in between.

By my lights, the first photo is by far the best of the lot, and for exactly the reason that Bynx doesn't like it -- there is a grafitti-on-the-Mona Lisa vibe to it that raises a photo of a lovely girl to the level of art. The others certainly engage the eye, but for no reason beyond the fact that we want to see beautiful naked women. There is no depth to the composition that makes us want to delve into the mystery of this person. In the first photo, I want to know the story of the woman's life. Not so with the others. FWIW

You know what, I tend to agree with you... (That's why I've particularly picked that image to post 1st):

I have to agree here. If the woman had been in a fire and was severely burned someplace she might make the photo interesting with a story to tell. But in this case the self imposed ugliness to her beauty is not interesting at all.
