You have a style all to your own. I do really like this version more than the one submitted to the "Visual Puns" challenge.

And I thought my hair dying antics were way out there...this guy goes and dyes his eyebrows blue! Crazy. Na...I'm sure you didn't do it on purpose, but there is definately a blue tint to those eyebrows that strikes me as odd. Don't worry...I'm not voting since I entered, but wanted to point it out anyway. The only other thing bugging me in this shot is the angle/crop. over 1/2 of the photo is forhead, and with the slight forward angle of the head, it makes your forhead look larger in comparrison to the botton 1/2 of your head. Almost misproportioned (is that a word?)
Still a darn good shot and one that draws me in. I could stare at this for long periods of time. Good work.

The soft texture of this photo is is superb and the eyes are wonderfully alluring! I think the selective saturation in the eyes worked well too. I'm thinking top 3 for this one!

Stunning Photo. Beutiful example of how to make a picture flow. Good contrast on the eyes and face. Crisp details but still leaves you with a soft feeling of a portrait.

Excellent use of selective coloring. I think the crop is great and the focus is superb. The catchlights are very nice and strong. The smooth lighting works very well to create the very smooth skin tones.

a little flat. I don't really see any true whites. The highlights should be a bit more punchy.

Pretty eyes, but too much light reflection (could be cloned out) and way too much Neat Image.

This is the only one of this genre that I enjoyed and went back over an over again to view. The coloration is not overdone like in some of the other photos. Additionally I love the effect of the procelain skin. The cathlights in the eyes really add life. Speaking of the eyes they peer right through you. Perfect light perfect focus and for me a perfect photo. 10

Reminds me of a game called Tekken. I like the eyes but the skin is a little to plastic looking for me.

The only difference between this and your "iphoto" picture is the angle, i think you should have done something different or rethought it.

I think i've seen those eyes before. Really nice, very intense

nice eyes shot...but is that neat image that has made your skin look plastic?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful.

i think i've seen these eyes before..i hope your not getting slammed because of the non-portrait style maybe? great image though, loving what you did with the eyes.

This is beautiful, I'm not a real fan of neat-image but it really works well here. I like the selective desaturation you chose as well. Great job!
