This was taken at a wedding which I was fortunate to be able to assist at. I was taking pictures from the balcony in the church and was looking out for people looking back at the wedding procession - this one really stood out.

Cropped a small amount (~5%) top and left to tighten the composition. Applied Noise Ninja. Converted to B&W with channel mixer; small tweaks with levels and curves to get the right degree of contrast.

Just realised I forgot to sharpen it!

I love how the DoF clearly tells you who is the focus of this picture. The title lends more depth to her gaze.

While the face is very centered here it still stands out well because of the light and dof. Nice work.

It appears to be over the shoulder of someone at a wedding. If so, I think thiss was a creative shot. Taking a picture like that of someone in the pew is not what you expect to see in weading pictures.

I don't usually like comments or give them, but since candids are near and dear to my heart, I have decided to comment on every photo in this challenge.

Nice smile, nice tones, looks like a shot from the 50's at some prom. However, without the title, the photo offers little else. A 5 from me.
