I prefer the second version with the cooler tones. I feel that it has more depth and looks more realistic than the first version that you posted.

It is a wonderful portrait, love the blue background, and the skin tones, including that wonderful smile is just gorgeous.

I really like what you have done here with the cooler tones..... I think you have improved it as well and should be very happy with it....it is a very nice style Mary. Well done.
