An image left over from the headwear challenge. I really liked the outcome but wasn't able to do what I wanted under the basic rule set so thought why not enter in the free study. It turned out exactly the way I invisioned from a not so pretty original. To me this is a very good example as to why digital photography is a process from begining to end. So much can be done from so little and the end result can be so satisfying... :)

seems like a bit too much neat image on the skin ... but overall great photo

superb, although I don't think it needs so much black area on the left side.

I can't be sure, but I believe I saw those eyes on another great shot recently - and they are still wonderful. Bumping you up a bit :)

Simply beautiful! Love the shadow falling away from the eyes! Amazing. Maybe a small comment, it looks like the whites of the eyes have been processed a bit too much. Personal opinion, but I like a bit of 'life' left in the whites of the eyes.....Great shot.
