Took my black & white version and colorized it using separate layers (each set to color blending mode) for each color.

Tried to imagine what the skin color for a woman from India would look like, and went with that color.

Thus far, I think this is the best yet. You did a superb job rendering the skin tone, facial contours, and shadowing. The original didn't have much contour detail, leaving the face rather flat.

I would like to see the clothing a bit more muted, however. It pulls my eye’s attention away from the woman’s face. Other than that, the clothing is just as well done.
Hummmm...I think a touch of rose tint to the lips too....

Thank you Cinthia. I agree that toning down the clothing would improve the overall photo.
