The title means "blissful news for me" in Latin.

post challenge:

Very pleased about all the comments - thank you all so much!

This was a hand-held self-portrait taken in my bathroom in front of a window (with trees outside). Lighting was window lighting and I'm pretty sure the bathroom light was on too. The face paint wasn't actually paint but metallic markers. I don't recommend putting those on your face, haha!

I'm very proud of this. I did a lot of detailed post-processing, but I'm also proud of the photoshoot itself.

This is my fifth highest scoring image to date and I am very happy about that, thanks everyone :-D

Nicely done. You almost matched Larus' score, which was similarly held back due to the rainbow theme.

This is lovely. I'm very surprised it didn't score higher. It's a lovely shot. Beautifully done.

Quirky and beautifully conceived - you have every reason to be proud, it's a great shot. That soft glow around you makes it seem like you are in some enchanted forest. Hope the marker ink came off eventually!

Terrific portrait. I like the angle you took on this one. The face paint really adds another dimension.

Also love the way the paint colors are reflected once again in the eyes and a bit in the background.

I am absolutely amazed that this did not do better than a 5.8 score. You were robbed!

The eyes alone would have qualified for this challenge. I think the face paint is distracting from the true rainbows.

nice job on the eyes, nice and sharp

What a great image. I love the focus, brightness of the eyes, stunning!

Excellent focus on the eyes - love the makeup and the softness of the skin and background around the face

Pose, composition, make-up, all good. The model is pleasingly seperated from the background, and certainly stands out well. My only slight criticism is that the background foliage is a bit 'busy' and somewhat distracting.

Rainbow eyes, beautiful. 7

Great focus on the eyes and a nice soft background
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent portrait, the eyes are amazing. The light is reflecting a little harshly off the mettalic face paint, particularly on the nose and the colours don't really scream rainbow. However a great image - 7

Nice work on the eyes though on the whole I'm not totally convinced by the lighting. Good composition and choice of subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

good POV and good focus on the colorful eyes, face painting color choice is not too rainbow-like. lights on necj are blown
