I'm leaning toward unedited. The washed out one didn't turn out as expected and the greyscale just makes her look weird.

The shoot was supposed to be outside, but it rained so this is just an impromptu setup. I usually do dark backgrounds indoors so they are easier.

need to get further from the backdrop
also need to light the backdrop +1 to +2 full stops over 0EV.

Also iron your backdrop.

In #1 and #2 she is very yellow...#3 isn't so bad...

Yeah not much room to do that. And I am not done touching it up, including the temperature.

It's about 1/2 to 3/4 of a stop underexposed as well. Here's what I did with CS5 and the very small web image I was able to DL from photobucket.



BAsically increased exposure with limited success because I don't have the RAW, sharpened eves, removed jaundice, burned out the wrinkles in the BG, whitened teeth and whites of eyes, and selective dodging and burning of key areas. Also cropped a lil. Cutting off mid thigh is not...erm...ideal? Could do a much better job if I had a full size file to work with. Feel free to PM me if you want to email me the full file to mess with! I love doing this kind of stuff!

EDIT: After looking at it again, I may want to go back and add some vibrance to her face as it's looking a little bland right now. Possible make the red in her lips *pop* BRB...
EDIT2: done. Slightly better. IMO, in a female (especially a pregnant one) the photog ought to emphasize soft skin and curves.
