Working on improving my workflow and style

Please tell me which edit you prefer of these by voting for either #1 (the photo on your left as you are viewing) or #2 below. I would also love to hear some comments if you don't mind explaining your vote. Thanks so much!

They sit side by side on my screen and that makes them hard to judge. Also, I really don't see any difference in the colors.

Why is side by side hard to judge? I put them together on the same canvas for just that reason. Nothing worse than scrolling up and down to compare, imo...

Plus I see a big difference in colors, especially looking at her face and at the overhead supports. I wonder why they look the same on your screen?

I see the left image as warmer and more saturated. The right side image seems to be more accurate in color. DISCLAIMER: I'm on my iPad, so I'm not sure my display is accurate.

Skintone looks more natural in #2 for me but I like the vibrancy of the colours esp hair in #1 but maybe a little too much for the face.

The image on the right is warmer and that's the one I prefer. The image on the left seems to have more blue.

Because of all those lines going in opposite directions pulling my eyes

On a different computer now and I see the one on the left more red in the face. The one on the right looks better.

I think your iPad is pretty accurate, Ed, thanks for commenting!

I think you and me are on the same page - I love that vibrant color on the metal supports and the red sweater, but you're right, too much for the face.

You're right, Brooks. Having a hard time learning Lightroom but today, I watched the Kelby tutorial disk that came with the program and learned a LOT. Hopefully I'll do better next time.

I should have separated them with at least a broad stroke! lol. Sorry about that.

You're right about the face. Thanks for the input!

You can shoot tethered into Lightroom. Just saying.

One day, my friend, when I can spring for a laptop, I plan on doing that! Or maybe building a cart for the desktop and pulling it around with me
