A while ago I posted this photo, and everybody hated it:

Self-portrait in fuchsia

Do you like this one better?

Yes. Put the smile from B on A and that would be the bestest.

I think that you are too rosy for a black background.

I like the composition of the first one better, but you look much more like you in the second one.

Smiling Patti = good
Up-lighting = hideous.
Black background = not so much.

I have to agree with the put the smile on number 1 and that would be wonderful. Your hair color seems more vibrant in the second one and darn it, who can resist a smile and cute glasses on a lady? Not me. You look very stern or as if you have been interrupted in the first picture. That is the only reason it doesn't jump out at me.

I like it more, but it's still not the 'real you'.

(And no, I have no idea what that would be, but might know
it when I saw it)

Yes! Probably because you're smiling.

B > A for various reasons expressed in varying degrees by the other commenters.

I think you need a crop in your hand in pick #1 and I agree with the others that I like your smile in #2 but not the black background. I wonder what background would be most complimentry though.

Yup, B is better than A, because of the better lighting, the more uplifted face, and the maniacal grin.

Have you ever considered dying your eyebrows?

The catchlight in the eyes and angle are more flattering in #1. Add a smile and drop the black bg.

Yes but…

I guess these are self-portraits. Like lawyers, artists shouldn't represent themselves. (Exceptional self-portraits prove the rule. ;) Find someone to take one for you; maybe you can return the favor.

For the sake of clarity, I meant, "Yes, I like the second one better, but…."
