Thank you to my beautiful model and fiancee Helen. An alternative title could have been "patience" as I played with the lights.

Cropped. Some minor cloning to remove stray hair strands, slightly improve detail on forehead and nose, remove a couple of skin bumps. Whitened eyes a bit. Contrast up, brightness down. Saturation down slightly. USM, resize, USM. Save for Web.

Excellent portrait portraying this mood.

This looks very posed, and therefore not particularly convincing.

a nice portrait. Perhaps a touch over-sharpened in my eyes.

From this angle at this focal length, the hand looks too big in proportion to the face. Lighting looks unintenionally too harsh. Reds are a little too saturated.

I think this would have been better in black and white, even though I'm not really a huge fan of black and white.

I like this shot as a portrait, it has strength, I especially like the hand gesture and the models gaze. It could use a bit of touching up here and there, the left cheek seems a little burnt in and there are a few distractions ofn the background, but nevertheless it's an interesting pose

Too posed... There's obviously something behind the eyes, but it appears so posed, that the emotion/mood is lost. (6)

First thougts... Jamie Lee Curtis. Very striking resemblance.

sooo much tension - the lines in the background are tense too.

reminds me of the movie 'Rosemary's Baby' for some reason. 9

Nice shot. A little more focus on the eyes would of really worked for me. Plus the slightest bit of white gloss in the hair draws my eyes from the face. 8.

Love it!!! This is very artistic-feeling...nice shadows and this does have a worrisome quality about it.
