Very pretty. Reminds of the portraits of the golden age movie stars. A classic. Would've like the eyes to be slightly desaturated though or is that really your eye color ? :)

You took a beautiful portrait and in my opinion punched it up about 10 notches with a very bold and stirring approach to editing. I love the tones and the crop and think this image is worthy of a ribbon. Great job. 10

Staring up at the sky - kind of reminds me of Hamlet's Ophelia. Day-dreaming Laurie.

Consider blending out the edges of the contacts. Otherwise- very nicely done.

Very cool. Great lighting. Not a big fan of selective color, but this works.

Nice self portrait. Has a very dreamy feel to it and I love the green eyes. Great work!

I don't really like the 'glow' effect used on the face, however the eyes look fantastic!

cool eyes, selective desat works well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2006 01:33:20 PM
monitor recalibration time for me again! At first I thought it was was a little lob sided but looking at the screen from an angle brought out the rest of your hair. Great work (but then you started off with a good canvas)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2006 11:17:40 AM
Uha, great picture.. Beautiful work you did on the eyes :o)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2006 10:51:41 AM
Heya Laurie, great selective desat! Are you wearing green contacts?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2006 06:03:38 AM
This has a very old-Hollywood movie feel to it. Not a fan of the selective color on the eyes, though. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2006 03:28:38 AM
I recognize you, I forgot your name :S This is beautiful. Your eyes are stunning and I like the pose.

This reminds me of the Phantom of the Opera... very Christine Daie.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2006 11:32:59 PM
I think this photo is stunning. Very 1940's Hollywood Glamor. Your expression is flawless as is your skin. I think I would have liked it better without the green colorizations. Even so 10.

Move star quality. Gorgeous skin, great lighting and interesting composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2006 12:50:00 PM
I think this is a great photo, but I do think the eyes are just a bit too distracting... I like the idea, but maybe with a tad more restraint in my opinion. Otherwise lovely and a great portrait.

Green eyed beauty. :) Well done.A very photogenic face for sure. The softness definitely works - would like to see a different style of photo from you / of you as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2006 02:40:13 AM
This selective desat works really well IMHO - it's not overdone. The soft focus is great and I love the old movie star quality/mood.
