She is gorgeous and your photograph of her really brings that out. I love how her pupils are so wide - adds a sense of wonder. You do very, very nice work.

This is such an emotional shot that it brought tears to my eyes. What a beautiful girl and it seems as though you captured a certain serenity about her. Terrific!

I really thought we would see this in the top 5 at least. It was in my top 2!! Great capture, you succesfully captured emotion, but it is still general enough that people can interpret the meaning for themselves depending on what is happening in their lives. I know that it touched me in a very personal way and I love it! Plus, your model is beautiful, in both pictures. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Beautiful model. She's brave enough to shave such nice hair, just to enhance her amazing face... Excellent composition!

Wow! Beautiful lighting. I like the way the person's pose contrasts with the pose in the picture. It would have been nice if the framed shot was a little more focused, but a cool idea and shot never the less. :)

Extremely well done photograph. Detail and setup are especially nice.

This photo...although beautiful and poignant in itself... is a true representative of a photo-journalistic approach to photography. A picture is worth a thousand words they say, this photograph says so much more.

Excellent job! Excellent subject! (9)

I think the best photographs demand that the viewer take time to figure them out. I would prefer to see a different composition on this, but the photograph has, nevertheless, accomplished it's job. - 10

Might offer more with the model looking at the framed photo instead of directly at the camera.

Without the hair, her eyes stand out like magic. Very nice job.

This photo doesn't need a title to tell the story, I like how she's looking straight into the viewer's mind..... Nice job

There must be an interesting story to this. You have told quite a bit with this photo. I love the composition and this is one of my faves of the challenge. Good luck!

This is a powerful message, and I think it is absolutely beautiful.the lighting is a little harsh, but i think the message overpowers that.

Interesting. Why are so many hair shots being dominated by beautiful eyes! You could fall into those pupils. I hope the subject didn't shave the hair off for this shot. But... I hope she's not going through a bad illness.
If she is... I hope she recovers soon. I like the composition and the story it tells. Congrats.

Lack of hair does nothing to diminish your beauty. ..... ..... ...ok, took me awhile to stop staring at your eyes. :)

Great concept, beautifully executed. Best of luck to you.

Wow. A very dear friend of mine has started her treatment this month and I was thinkking about her when this challenge came up and now I see this image. Very powerful. Her eyes speak loudly. Technically the lighting is nice and the crop is very intimate.

Beautiful woman.
