I wish I could have reduced the glare in my glass (which was the #1 seggestion from those who commented) but from what I understand it's against the rules to edit stuff like that.
I think the photo came out suprisingly well for the little effort I put into it. It was taken around 7 am on a Sunday, I had no make up on and didn't even really brush my hair. The lighting was all natural, just the sun coming through the bay window in my living room. I was sitting on the couch.
Thank you for all your comments!

I like the way you cropped this photo. I also like the softness & the slight touch of color.

Great shot, but I find the reflections in the glasses a little distracting

Really interesting, having the glasses in color! Didn't notice it in the thumbnail. I like the sharpness and intensity of this photo.

Love the composition except for the distracting tree reflections in the glasses. They may have been part of the point but I guess I'd rather see your eyes. :)

Looking through the thumbnail gallery, this shot captured my attention. I like the lighting and the close-up and the thoughtful look of your expression. I wish you had been able to reduce a little more of the glare on your glasses so we could see your eyes better.

I think a portrait should reveal some character, or emotion of the model, by showing expression in eyes or other facial features. Did your picture accomplish that? Yes.

artistic/creativity? good composition.

Technical? Very good detail/texture on the skin.

Overall? Nice

Lovely quality to this.

Good close up, but I think I'd rather see your eyes than the reflection.
06/18/2003 04:40:13 PM
Love the color of the glasses! Cool shot!

Great touch leaving the color in your glasses. My only complaint is the amount of relfection in your glasses... I wish I could see your eyes clearly. Good work.

Very pretty - I like the mood on this pic and how the blue stands out. I love your glasses - nice photo. 9.

A real nice soft B&W. Reflections on glasses make it.

Top shot.

Beautiful, but lacking contrast for my taste. Also, the difficulty of photographing someone with glasses becomes apparent. (6)

Great effect with the glasses. Pretty subject.
