O.k. so some think it's over done... can't say I disagree... but in the end, pretty is pretty and I decided to keep it as it was.
Yes, there's alot of tonal adjustments and saturation work and dodging and sharpening and neat imaging, but they're available tools and I used them all for a change. Thought it was an interesting place to arrive and I'm happy with it... :)

I am stunned by this picture as it is just WOW! Id like to pick your brain about how you get your eyes so sharp and colorful.

this shot creeps me out all over, but it's very chillingly gorgeous nonetheless. wow, that eye.

Amazing colors, and the composition is perfect.
Love her eye and how it draws the attention in.

Okay I saw this image on the first day of the challenge...and could have sworn it would take top honours...I am surpised at the result.

And then I find out the photographer and was blown away. I actually have a similiar image in another portfolio...If you are interested...let me know.

Very intriguing - bumped for beauty and interest.

Her eye looks a little too artificial. Giving a 5 because of that. Otherwise, very cool.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/02/2006 11:22:46 PM
This is really nice but it looks a little over processed!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/02/2006 12:40:35 AM
Superb pose and use of color, but the eyelashes look very strange
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/01/2006 06:43:17 PM
just for the eye color alone -- one of my favorites this challengs
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/01/2006 04:09:04 PM
Interesting composition. The eye looks like a jewel, pearly sparkle. Looks a bit too noise reduced/lack of fine detail. 7

im sorry you ruined this picture by over editing it, it had great potential

I don't care for what must be blue shift of color balance. She looks either freezing or dead.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2006 09:54:09 AM
if this doesnt take the blue ribbon, then there is something seriously wrong going on around here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very interesting. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2006 08:47:21 PM
Nice composition. I think the skin looks a bit "over processed" as well as the retna and iris. I would have liked to seen a stronger reflection and I gave it an 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2006 08:08:02 PM
Very cool image, but way over processed IMO. I'm sure it will do well on DPC though. Nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2006 01:41:03 PM
Don't like the effect on her eyes makes it look like a painting... sharp and clear eye would give you top score.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2006 12:32:39 PM
Very beautiful composition. The color tones go together nicely. Great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What a stunning photo, 10 from me and a fav. Good luck for the ribbons.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This could be an awesome shot. You have composed it very nicely but I think your camera has limited the overall quality of the final result.

Creat concept... just looks a bit over processed to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Finally, an artful one!!! I like this, especially after 25 waterfalls and glasses of water!

Nice aqua tones. Beautiful eyes. Has a sense of mystery. Thanks for a nice diversion. Now back to the mundane.... LOL

03/27/2006 12:22:20 AM
this would be very well done, but it seems the quality is off or some kind of pastally softening effect is on it that takes away the punch
