LiiLii (6 of 8)
model Liilii in a vintage swimsuit – monochromatic graphic approach, emphasizing tone and the period nature of the swimsuit

One of the best benefits of photography is that multiple iterations of an image are possible, and all are equally valid. I shot and processed this image in June and still don’t know which is the “preferred” image.

LiiLii (4 of 8)
model Liilii in a vintage swimsuit – modern color approach, emphasizing the contrast of pastels on the suit and natural tones surrounding the model.

My usual advice to students is, if a image has no prominently featured color scheme, there’s no reason for it to be in color, and it’d be more effective as a black and white. A strong case could be made for either approach here.
