I love how we can just see the ouline of her mouth through te head scarf. Her right eye is slighly out of focus. Gotta watch out for that short depth of field.

Oh those eyes, and I love the barely visible mouth beneath the cloth. My first reaction is that this could be our winner! Good luck.

There is certainly mysterious beauty here. Good portrait but I find the background a little busy for me. I think she would have stood out more with less detail there. But very nice.

the veil should've been much less revealing.. her eyes would've been much more prominent in this picture that way! And her eyes deserve that!

Outstanding lighting and color. Focus is excellent and textures of the cloth and your model's skin adds to the impact of this photo. A ribbon is certainly coming your way. Great job!

BEAUTY~FUL!:) 10 (my first one)

Gasp!!! That is one of the most beautiful and striking portraits I've seen. There's not one thing that keeps this from being absolutely perfect. She looks 3-dimensional like she is coming right out of the photo. It seems like everyone would HAVE to give this a 10, so here is another one :)

Nice! I love the saturation!

I like the lighting a lot here.. I am trying to figure out how you did it. One light from top, another from left of camera ?
I wonder why you used a deeper dof here. Did you try shallower dof also ? I will wait for the chalenge to end to see your details.

Terrific lighting...soft, no hot spots and sharp. Nice composition and line. Bumping.

Beautiful picture, the eyes are so clear and although the off focus area would be better if solid color. Great work though!

Very exotic. I like the contrast of her garments (sorry can't remember the correct term) and the green foliage in the background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

She is Beautiful!! Love her brown eyes and colors all around her. 10

This doesn't work for me...the incredibly pampered look of this individual (eyebrows, makeup, supersmooth skin) clashes with the context in which she's presented...

She's got such nice eyes, I would have just taken a photo of her face, as is...

Compositionally, I like the photo and it looks well toned. I find the background a bit distracting as well as the red light on her left shoulder...I bet you got some great photos out of this shoot, though!

Wow, those eyes are amazing.

The lighting here is simply supberb. She also has the most beautiful eyes and is thus perfect for this shot. 10

At first my thought was, "Okay, this pose has been done..." but I was very pleasantly surprised to see a new emotion in the eyes of the model. I like your scarf selection and the background. You captured her eyes wonderfully - they could probably be a little crisper, but I really like this shot. Very well done. (8)
