Excellent, great composition and light tones. Your eyes look great and the whole expression shows determination. Lovely study.

Your face goes well with the frame size of the photo, long :) Nice shot, I like the soft focus. You probably don't need any more comments on how pretty you are, so I won't.

Good execution of the soft effect - especially on the right arm in the the hair. The face and neck are lighted perfectly to show the features, but not make them harsh.

I like the softness of this, how it looks almost like a charcoal drawing. That one wisp of hair out of place is my only gripe. Very nice image!

Your knee is in better focus than your face. I think I would have cropped the knee totally. The rest is a super soft focus portrait. 8 without the knee. 7 - floyd.

why so sad, sunshine? the higher contrast really works...assuming you were trying to convey a sombre mood. the darkeness around your eyes looks very sad. resaturating the colours and flattening the contrast would change the mood entirely IMO.

nice.

Very good shot... This looks mystical in some way, maybe because of the blur on the arm, not sure. Maybe should have shown more of your forehead.

Everything about this is great. Your eyes are so haunting...the texture of your knee that is pulled into the bottom of the frame...the softness, the simplicity. Great job.

Nice framing, but I'm not crazy about the knee - it's kinda coming out of nowhere and looks a little strange. Would have liked to see this in color for the eyes.

Love the framing and the soft-focus -9

I like the soft focus and soft lighting as well, which bring out your features nicely. Cropping works well here too even with the top of your head cut off. I also like the negative space to the left, which helps to define your face. Pose is well chosen. You have big beautiful eyes and the shot is very captivating. Beautiful photo of a beautiful woman!

Beautiful large eyes, what color are they really? This is a very good portrait, cropped perfectly - 9.

nice composition. Eyes are very bold and looks very clear and nice. your hair giving them some kind of the frame.

You look kind of scared
06/18/2003 12:09:30 AM
The softness of the photo combined with the your georious eyes really make this image strong. This has a real since of vunerability that most only see after years of trust. Wow, what an image.
