I actually like this version best, the soft Sepia background color is warm and pulls all the detail and colors together. The white is bright and can make the piece 'pop' out more but the colors seem to get a little washed out apposed to here, this feel warm while the white is more cold.
My comment from SheezyArt: "I am so feeling Klimt here. The level of detail and intricate pasterns on your background border is stunning! It feel so alive and in motioning. She is beautiful with the design flowing off into the border, and everything is so delicately drawn, such fine lines! What care you out in to your works! [^w^] "
