This image says it all.
I want you to always come back to this image, when things are tough, and look at the beauty one can see here.
Not only the beauty, but also the strength, that I see as well.....
Be strong, and be happy, and remember we all love you.....

This is terrific; there is such great clarity in the clothes and frame; they add great depth. Truly nice portrait.

I really like this photo, especially in that while your face hasn't changed much in the year between the photos - the knowledge and wisdom has. Its a nice contemplation on how much we can grow in a short time. :)

the idea is good, but im not sure if the white background is good. if you had a background similar to the one in the older picture, the backgrounds might look more compatible

her finger on the bottome of the frame looks weird and how the photo is stuck to the glass. i like the new less distracting background better.

I just really love the light and simplicity of this picture! Of both portraits actually! What an intriguing idea. I also love the fact that the natural / real element of the actually photograph has been left intact...this is a photograph left in it's purest and best form...no obvious Neat Image, no crazy photoshop"filters", just so natural and "true" and left to be what it is...very nicely done.

The finger is disturbing me a littel here:/
I think (personally) that it would have bin better if you could skip the finger or show more of her under her photo

After what? Nice image. I would have reshot this with the finger at the bottom moved out of the shot. Doesn't look like you could crop it out as you need the whole frame on the photo.

Very unique shot. I feel that the finger coming up is a little bit incongruous with the rest of the shot.

Unique concept, however I think the old picture distracts from your portrait of her.

I remember it well (it's not a full year yet). Stll love it. As for the new composite image, it is perhaps less stylish than the original, but there's still something about it ... like a hidden meaning, I think. 7

Interesting photo. I really like the idea and the background allow the focus to stay where it should be.

I guess this photo begs the question, one year after what?

Your title and photo make me want to know the story...nice portrait of a pretty woman.

Interesting idea, a good way to record time...
I like the focus on the face with the narrow depth of field.

Cool idea.. thumb covering the bottom of the frame distracting.
