I'm not sure I understand the title but that doesn't affect my voting, I like this photo.
01/05/2003 04:19:46 PM
Very nice detail and clarity. The eyes lead me to the left where the frame ends. I would have liked to see more frame to the left of her 'gaze.' Nice shot... one of my favorites this week!
01/05/2003 03:59:23 PM
Great image. Very mysterious!
01/04/2003 11:33:05 PM
Excellent look!! I love the idea of the scarf draped over her face showing her eyes, which I might add are beautiful. Excellent photo.
01/04/2003 06:52:35 PM
This is such a sultry photo! I like it!
01/04/2003 04:24:35 PM
Wow. Excelent shot. 9
01/04/2003 04:06:51 AM
This is wonderful capture. Distant mystic eyes looking somewhere else. I like the DOF on woman's right eye. Good cropping!
01/03/2003 03:26:05 PM
really beautiful and powerful, 10
01/02/2003 06:43:50 PM
beautiful shot :) The only thing that I believe would make this stronger would be a dark veil... great work :) - setzler
01/02/2003 06:34:29 PM
i like this shot....the cropping and the veil adds some mystery to the image.....
01/02/2003 02:30:50 PM
Hypnotically beautiful.
01/02/2003 01:54:13 AM

lovely and alluring. looks like an old movie :)
12/31/2002 01:52:05 PM
Great picture, good detials *9*
12/31/2002 10:02:44 AM
I've seen the colour version of this (I'm *devious* like that ;) ) which is absolutely breathtaking. Would be an 11 if you could have entered it.
I don't think B&W does this any favours, but those eyes are still stunning, and the lighting, focus & detail are all spot on. The scarf frames the eyes beautifuly and adds to the composition.
Awesome work, but please show everyone the colour version after the challenge.
12/31/2002 05:32:02 AM
This is a beautiful shot. The tight composition is wonderful.
12/30/2002 08:58:11 PM

12/30/2002 07:15:28 PM
No comment necessary! Just "10"
12/30/2002 07:03:48 PM
Absolutely messmerizing (sp)...perfect tones and contrasts...This is a 10 for me.
12/30/2002 06:02:13 PM
WOW.....love this. Fantastic pose, light and focus. Nice. Congrats.
12/30/2002 12:01:03 PM
very nice. mysterious. sexy. beatiful.
12/30/2002 04:52:59 AM
Leslie? :)
12/30/2002 04:48:49 AM
Even without color this picture has a very strong impact and the lighting looks more balanced (the red in the original I have seen was so strong that it blew away the texture at the bottom-middle to the bottom right and right of the right eye).
Awesome photo!
12/30/2002 12:49:35 AM
This is awesome. So much mistic to it. The eyes say espianoge and intrigue. I love this. Everything is right about it. I'd definitely give it a 10. PTL
