Not sure if I like the blue look.....too cold. She looks warm to me so Id go for more of a warm tone.

Its definitely different.
I have to look at it a few more times to have an opinion about it.
Thats an odd border.
The body positioning is nice but the look on her face makes her appear to be sad.
Very different.

Tough crowd...

How about now with the warmer tone and odd border:

The edge/border, the blue and/or sepia motif are remindful of earlier type photographs which often had those kinds of looks (usually from aging). The beauty of the "Blue Dano" is it's subliminal-ness (perhaps a pose or scene of mood caught un-noticed or unexpected). The second photo, the model's pose is too contrived, but most people I suspect would prefer this more classic pose. As usual, it depends what one is looking for or even expects. (The first photo is suggests something caught as a surprise, maybe by both the model as well as even the photographer.) "Blue Dano" clearly is much more sophisticated.

As a whole, I prefer the second one better. The sepia tone along with the pose and further processing looks more natural to me. An old classic artistic nude.

After thinking about the first photo a little more I came to see it as the expression of sadness could be translated as the blues. Then the blue color helps to tell the story.

Just my crazy insightfulness.
