I like the soft coloring on the lips and eyes but the skin is much like a mannequin.

I don't mind the high key look, but the expression, particularly her eyes seem to be a little flat and empty. I like that her hair stayed natural while her skin was blown out. It's a nice shot. : )

Her left eye (from her point of view) is smaller than her right eye. To compensate for this it would be better to create a composition where the smaller eye is closer to the camera to get a result that shows both eyes at equal size. Therefore you'd have to shoot the face at an angle and not straight on. This would also compensate for the fact that her mouth is not in the same line as her nose and eyes.
The lighting effect is interesting but a little bit harsh around the edges of the hair.

Nice glamour shot. Looks very high fashion.

It's a nice portrait, although I feel that her skin is a bit too soft.

I love the high key, and think it's been very effectively postprocessed. The colour contrast between eyes and lips is also so effective. The dark shadow on the left eyebrow/lid disturbs me though. Still, a wonderful portrait, that really speaks to me.

The ivory perfection of the processing emphasizes the asymmetry of her shadowed eyes, creating an awkward effect.

Certainly does have a dream-like feel. Love how the blue eyes jump out of the shot!

Looks like a little too much Neat Image. Also, the high key is a little blown out.

A little overblown whites I think.
looks interesting and the look is very captivating though.

good work.

Lovely image, only tiny issue is that the reflection in the eye is a little strange, looks like straight flat pixels (thought it was my screen to start with :) ) Beautiful portrait

I like the concept, but something about the execution is bugging me.. it might be the blur on the skin....

she is overexposed and the colors of her features overwhelm the image rather than her.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Looks like a little too much Neat image messed the eyes up a little.

Like the hair, high-key and blue eye combination... Very good technically.

I can see that the processing is intentional, and that you're going for a particualr 'look' with this, but I think you may have overdone it just a bit. I like seeing the texture in her hair and lips, and I would like to see just a bit more of it in her skin (as well as just a hair more color and less 'glow'). I like the pose and the expression, it's just a bit overdone in the processing.

Nice. I like the high key look and those eyes look good. A similar problem I had with my entry was the pupils weren't big enough. Your's is fine but I think if they were bigger it would make this look even better although I'm not sure how to accomplish that myself especially with the lighting you're using here. Regardless of that, this is a very good image!

The lighting on the face is a bit too harsh, and that combined with the soft focus gives her an almost corpse feel. The whiteness does really bring out the hair, eyebrows, eyes and lips, however. An interesting portrait, for sure. -6

I like the soft feel to this picture, but the un-eveness of the eyes is the first thing that draws my attention. One of them is a bit darker and also not fuly opened

What happened? Maybe some like this processing. But I dont. Looks to unreal.
