Thanks folks for the great comments and the amazing finish. My daughter Jack puts up with alot of crap and for that I owe her. She dosn't say much but I think inside she gets a bit of a thrill from seeing herself in so many different ways. As usual, I'm not trying to make any deep statement... producing a nice image that's received well is good enough.
Take care.

Holy Smokes!!! She is amazingly attractive. I love the great color saturation and sharp focus. Her makeup is excellent and the spikes/piercing look great on her. Wow <adds to favorites>.

Great shot Rudy. Her eyes go with the hair and it is fascinating the way you treated her skin. Glad your daughter puts up with your antics!

Rudy, I don't know how I missed commenting on this yet, I am good for atleast 2 dozen of your views, I think this awesome, I love the almost porcelain colored skin. Your daughter is a pretty amazing model to have, she has some great looks and brings out many moods. Usually I congratulate you for a great finish, but this time its for a great daughter. :)

just noticed uv now got 8 of the buggars ...
i'm calling them buggars, coz for me they are so elusive ... thought my free study'd do well, but i't appears i'v still got no idea ... its come up from 3.9!!! to 4.9 ... i'm feeling disheartened ..

wow, great capture, her eye is stunning, awesome exposure
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/31/2007 09:04:20 PM
I gave you my highest score yet--8. REALLY great shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/31/2007 08:12:42 PM
Awesome! In a Goth Glam sort of way. Technically it's great as well.
Crystal Clear. No background distractions. Vividly colorful, as they mesh
well together. Definitely not dull. It grabs a viewer's attention.
Fits theme well. Lighting is almost perfect. ( A tiny bit bright
on the left side of her jaw and cheek. A creative composition.
Top 10 entry for sure, and a probable ribbon winner.

03/31/2007 07:03:53 PM

I love the alabaster skin and the framing of the eye with the smouldering tones of the hair. Very pretty.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2007 03:33:17 AM
Great shot - magnificent eye...
I think I would have cropped it a little tighter on the right to make the eye less centered, but that's just a minor detail. 8 for now...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2007 02:40:55 AM
Excellent detail, very intense eyes, the color in the iris is a nice touch
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/26/2007 12:56:10 AM
An excellent choice of suject for the challenge, as so many Pop cultures stem from it, Music, fashion, Hair, jewellery, and personal mood to fit the time....10
