Lily, a child who was playing when I went out to shoot sometime in March. Natural light, in the open.
No neatimage, her skin was really that smooth :).

I haven't submitted a picture in a long time, and wanted to share this. I really like this picture very much, and I hope you like it too!

It's amazing how much more powerful this shot is when you obscure the nose and mouth. I would have done that, since the crop is awkward here. Great eyes with such depth.

I feel like she's trying to speak to me.

Beautiful eyes, great title, I think it might be too tighly cropped at the bottom. How did the photo look if you left her lips whole? Still a great photo though!

Wow, what an excellent way to describe her eyes.

An absolutely priceless shot. Perfect crop, outstanding job converting to BW. There is a timeless look of innocence in her eyes. Regardless of the position finish, this photo is forever.

Pretty eyes, a little too tightly cropped for me.

the only thing I seem to miss in this photo is the part of the mouth that's cropped. but, I love her eyes and the innocense that's in it. nice job!

Super sharp, beautiful focus on the eyes! Not sure about the crop...I might have given it a little more room on the bottom. Very lovely tone to the image!

I really like the expression in the eys - beautiful eyes with great catch lights. I feel the crop is too tight along the lower lip
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful eyes, I wish all of her mouth would be inside the frame, like that it would be better although it's not bad as it is..

Great image! Very nice post processing job - great crop!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great eyes, you've really captured the look perfectly. I'm unsure about cropping thru the mouth though, seems slightly awkward.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2006 05:01:58 PM
The eyes are great, but the crop seems too close for me. Just a little more of the mouth/lips would have been more appealing. I think it would have balanced better with the fact you included all of the eyebrow on the upper right. Other than that, good job.

love the crop/composition and the tones. Rendered well, appropriate DOF. 8 - good luck in the challenge.

There is no question thst the eyes are stunning. The image is very aptly titled. Beyond the eyes, the tonal range is very nice, but I don't care for the slight yellow/green hue in the browns. Also the crop is a touch awkward for my taste, particularly the way the lip is clipped. But, it is worth repeating: the eyes are GORGEOUS.
