Looks like a noble woman. You can see the wisdom of age. Looks fragile but not frail. Nice.

Lighting is a little harsh, but a good portrait otherwise. Nicely composed. What does it look like in black & white?

Nice job. I like the lighting and the angle. The only thing that bothers me is the glare from the light on her glasses.

beautiful portrait of a beautiful woman. great use of negative space. would suggest that you might want to completely take out the details in the negative space before delivering a final print. this is an exquisite piece of work. don't know if you shot it with the challenge in mind, but the angle really adds to the impact. good luck.

I like the way this seems like a picture of a person instead of an old woman. Nice illustration of the connection between dignity and authority. The detail comtributes to the beauty of the person and the portrait.

Good photo!

By chosing to capture her from below you wanted to show her dominant position. That's good. I think if the light came from below, too, that would have emphasized this impression.

very nice idea, I like the setup, though I would have taken care to put some sort of black backdrop behind her. That light in her glasses is distracting as well.

very beautiful photo! The lighting is placed well and really brings out the lines on her face. It is kind of an extreme enterpration of the challenge but overall I think this photo is going to be top 10

Good use of negative space. Good lighting, except for the glare on the glasses.

The reflection on the glasses kind of takes away something from the photo.

Great angle. Great expression on your subject's face. I like that she is looking to the future, almost seeing her future generations. I see pride and determination in this woman's face. The only flaw I see is the glare on her glasses. I know that is so hard to get rid of, but it really does distract from her face. Nice thought out. Powerful image.
