::: Greetings from Critique Club :::

Hi, as requested, here is an indepth critique of your submission.

First Impression - the most important one:
Nice hi-key shot. I like it.

I'd like to see a bit more negative space in this image. Loosen the crop some and move the eye to a stronger part of the composition.

It's an eye. It's right there. Can't miss it :-)

Technical (Color, focus, and light):
Color and focus look good.
Light is nice. I'd like to see it about a half a stop more to completely blow the highlights on the forehead.

To grow its vote?:
Clumps in the eyelashes stand out to me. I'm no makeup artist, so I don't know how to fix that. Also, I think the eye-liner could be darker.

Cool shot, very punchy. Good work.

Hope to see more from you soon,

Much detail is lost in the overexposure, but this still has some punch. Interesting.

I like the high contrast but think that it may be a little too overblown.

I am very partial to blown out photos. The voters will probably love it or leave it. I hope it does well.

Sharp focus on the eyelashes....just wish the eyeball itself was as sharp.
