I wanted to use the eyes with the black background, I like the way the lips show. Just looking for more than the normal eyes with a veil shot.

nice shot
but try to make the focus on the eyes to make it strong.

This is beautiful! I like the way her features are visible even though they are covered. And the pendant really makes the shot. My eyes circle the image counter-clockwise: from the lips up to the eyes, then the pendant, and back down around the folds of the scarf to the lips again.

Well done Chris! Congratulations on the top 10 finish. If those eyes were just a bit sharper this might have won a ribbon.

If the material was just a tad thinner so you could see more detail of her lower jaw area this would be perfect. Still deserves applause nice bright colors.

Very pretty, lovely bright colour. Her eyes seem a little soft.

Beautiful...although I want to see the rest of her face....I think again and don't want to see it....I'm sure she is perfect but the vail adds to the mystery. 8

I so very much wanted to give this a 10. The problem that I am seeing is with her eyes. It doesn't seem to me that her eyes are totally in focus, just a tad bit blurry. And beings her eyes are one of the main focal points, if not the main focal point, it really takes away from the photo. As for the rest of the photo, it is amazing.
I know Librodo is a master of these shots, so if you were having trouble with working out that blurriness in the center, he'd be the one to ask, I'm sure he wouldn't hesitate in answering, especially with a photo of this caliber. GL, I hope this does well.

Would of been a great photo if you had of nailed the focus on the eyes. They are not sharp enough. A slight bit of blowing out on the top right too. Great effort otherwise!

Would've liked it better if the whole face was shown. Don't like those 'veiled' women very much. But it's a good sharp photo. 6

Nice composition and eye contact but the eyes are a bit soft. They would benefit from either refocusing, or, since there's no distracting background, using a smaller aperture to increase DOF.

I like the lighting in this shot. The color looks a bit over-saturated, but still a good shot. The eyes could be a little sharper.
