Hi marek: Before i post my opinion i would like to know, what kind of technique are you using? All I can say for now is that the black line around her eyes looks good on the B&W version but not on the colored version.

That's because the eye lining matches the lips in color instead
of the hair/eyebrows, which is not the case in black and white.

You cheated hahaha... that's cool. You didn't do any dodge or burn neither used blur on it. I think it would look much better if you clean her eyes, lips and hair a little bit.

Re: Bombard me with critique please.

Here is my opinion but not on technique ( out of my depth a bit there )
I like the work done on both the colour and B&W but ( you knew that would be coming ?)
I find the bit of background through the hair on the left ( looking at the screen ) distracting as well as the freckle/mark on the arm
on just the B&W the thumb nail looks dirty ! and i think i would like to see a bit of the iris on the right eye to match the left one ( it looks a bit to solid a black )

Ok. The eye lines are too thick and they don't look uniform, and so the lower lip line. The stray hairs on her face, and like Palms said: the thumb nail looks dirty, and the background shows thru the right edge of the hair. These are really small details but they can do a big difference on your portrait.
