I did a headshot for an upcoming broadway star and assistant director who happens to be a friend of the family.

He was thinking he looked too "warm" (orange) in this. I created a cooler version, but I like the warmer version. What do you think? Or do both look wrong!?

(I added a less saturated version of the orange one to compare as well.)

I like the first one the best - it has the most natural looking color balance.

The second one is way to orange for me, and the third too pale. His ears, in all of them are also way too orange :)

when you see all the portraits in comparison I agree with Johanna.
But if you'd showed me the second one only I wouldn't have complained about the skin tone.
But what pops up very eye-catching are actually the ears!

I think the first one has the most natural looking colour,
funny, I didn't look notice his ears until they were mentioned,
now my eyes go straight to them

Another vote for #1, and yes, I'd do some work on the ears to tone down the backlighting coming through.

I guess we'll go with the desaturated version...and I've also selectively done so to his ears.
