I think the first photo might be well suited for Black and White.

Took a shot at Rainy day woman. I did a luminosity enhancement and blended it as "soft light". What this does is enhance the bright areas of the photo only. My aproach was that by enhancing the bright areas, the woman might stand out more in the photo seeing as she is draped in darker colors. then i applied a slight gaussian blur and only removed it from her head and the perimeter of her profile (including the umbrellas edges only). Below right is the original image.

soliz39!

Thanks for the effort and PS tips. It makes a lot of sense. Especially the umbrella. In you partially blurred version the pattern of the umbrella does´t disturb the eye.

Thanks

Torgny

I like the original, I think too much enhancment of the background makes you loose focus of the main subject.
Thought a BW conversion might look good. just for the heck of it.
