Very sexy shot. Nicely executed and great black and white work. A little blown out in a few spots but still very nice.

I like this shot. It's a good look. I like the position of the glasses. Well done.

Beautiful (the photo, too). I personally prefer more midtone detail, but composition and focus are right on.

Outstanding entry and very worthy of a high placement. The tones are excellent and I think the tight crop and unique tilt work perfectly... great job! 9

Returning for comments and bumping up. Cool composition. Love the b/w choice. Just as a minor nitpick I would have liked to see either sharper eyes or less sharp glasses. As a result your eyes take a slight back seat to the glasses which is the first thing I notice. However, if this was used as a ad for a eye glass company this would work perfectly. Regardless of that I like this a lot. Good luck!

Incredibly good high-key portrait, nice perspective. It captures the essence of today's modern woman. She is driven, smart, sexy and making a big impact on the corporate world. B&W works well in this composition. Kudos to you. This should be a top finisher.

This is a really cool portrait and one of my favourites. I would of liked the main focus more on your eyes than your glasses but overall, excellent work!

Very elegant, the clarity is great.

This shot feels very classy in black and white. I like the tilted composition a lot and the focus is superb. The catchlights in your eyes are great. I like how your glasses rest down on your nose and you are looking up into the camera.

your skin looks fabulous..only minor complaint is the shadow on the wall
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Is it just me? The diagonal flow of the scene and the glasses down the nose are pretty hot!
Seriously, interesting presentation, cool pose, good light and good contrast: 9

nice and simple, great connection with the lens, like the skew in the composition

I like this portrait: the diagonals work very well here..contrasts are good.

You used the full tonal range perfectly here, the conversion to B&W was a good choice. Taking a photo of someone with glasses, especially a self portrait is not easy. It is difficult to get the side of the person's face lined up with the "through the glass" side of the face. But here you lined it all up well. And you are very photogenic, I would love to photograph you one day :)

Stunning!

What I like best about this (and I hope this won't seem too presumptuous, especially from a crusty old dude) is that you have made yourself look very interesting. I mean more than just pleasant to look at, but interesting to know. Intelligent. Not self-absorbed. Stuff like that. It's a technically excellent photograph as well. Very fine portrait. 8.

Wow - I really love everything about this photo. Beautiful, smart, sexy. I like the angle also. A really great job.

CUTE! I like the tilt and the diagonal line. Nice high key too. 7

WOW! Lighting is perfect here and I really like how you've composed this shot. The down turned glasses really give this a sexy but sophisticated feeling. Then only suggestion that I can offer is to maybe loose the little lock of hair that is behind the right lens. It pulls my eyes away from yours. You are a beautiful woman and this is a wonderful photo that you should be very proud of.
