Thanks for all the great comments and the humbling critiques. I should have played with a couple of different crops. I do appreciate the feedback!

Nice idea. Since the shot is so close I would have liked to have seen the lashes without yellow and the nails a little neater with the color, the look for this pic is in the detail. Good idea and comp.

Returning for comment:
very smart and alluring. i would have cropped at the first phallanx for dynamite effect. However, as is iy is deserving of a good bump in score.

not a bad concept, may look even better B/W

Very nice. I do find the tip of the nose a bit distracting and think a closer crop at the bottom would have helped. But I haven't figured the voters out, so don't put too much stock in my opinion. :) The focus in the rest of the photo is fantastic! BOL

Yellow eye shadow - that's kind of scary. An interesting idea and composition, though, and very sharp rendition.

Nice shot and unique idea, it would have been nice to have fingers in focus also which could be achieved by drawing back a bit, increasing the apeture to f8 or f11or more to increase DOF and then cropping to the desired size. Minor point, nice photo and one of my favorites.

This is definately a clever idea...I would have tried a squarer crop around the eyes and fingers (the nose kinda distracts) but still, a clever idea. 7.

Wow! She has also yellow eyelashes. I like her vision.

DId you try to crop this above the nose? Also this would have more impact if it was BW and the nails and eye-line be in yellow.

a bit more attention to detail and this would be a 10.

Nice concept, one of my favorites! Congrats!

Interesting. The nails could've been done much better though - with some real, glossy nail polish instead of paint.

great idea...how about those color changing contact lenses next time? :-) Would have liked to seen it cropped a little tighter by losing the nose.

Should have placed something yellowbehind the cam so it can be seen in the eye ... also hsould have cropped the pic below the nose .. still amazing pic ... 7

nice concept, a better finger nail polish job is needed
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the idea. I think the Yellow polish should have appeared shiny and smooth.

THe yellow around the eye really makes the picture. Good Job
