Nice colouring on her dress, her hair, and the books behind her.
Also gold tinting on her jewels and the chair.
Backdrop of a city with a church and a tower.

From the same studio:

The ambrotype was made around 1855, the tintype around 1856.
The ambro seems to be American, the tin seems to be British.
Perhaps the photographer emigrated?
