Nice work technically speaking, love the clarity and sharpness. However, just gave this a 6 as I don´t really think it hit´s the challenge dead on without the title but like I said, well done on the techicals.

Lovely texture and beautiful expressive eyes.. and the brown is gorgeous. though the portrait looks good for this pic..I think it would have looked nice if it were cropped a bit further out..

This should do well. Good focus great shot. A little more creativety on the title would have made this a 10.
