Thank you all so much for the generous score and the comments! I can't remember the last time getting so many comments during voting; it has been exciting to watch. I really like the image but was uncertain if it was exciting enough for film noir.

This is my beautiful niece who so willingly poses for me. She is 19 but this image makes her look so much older. I have entered other images of her in the past.

Again, thank you!

Really not surprised this won!

I am quite surprised it's not over eight though. I had a feeling it might be your image and your niece, how beautiful.

Congratulations.

IMO, hands down the best pic of the challenge and best fit. Not only are the eyes captivating, they express just a hint of despair. Great shot!

Please change the title to suit this beautiful film noir portrait. Perhaps "Satan Met A Lady" or "La chienne", just sayin....
