Technically stunning and others mentioned all the beautiful attributes of this image ... BUT ...

No one mentioned how the perfectly parted lips balance the eyes. Absolutely super understated image. It makes me sigh.

Very Nice. You also have great eyes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love the lighting of this, so bright yet not overexposed and the treatment is great. The only thing that throws me off is the missing lower body. I'm not sure what it is, I love the pose and how it creates all sorts of lines and curves to follow but it just seems kind of odd to see you floating there. Still very cool nonetheless. :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/10/2006 10:46:35 PM
