Captivating photo especially her eyes!

Very well done. Your work is super fine. I have only a little suggestion which you may wish at times to consider. This involves changing the shapes of the cathlights because the round one have a more natural look. However, each image must be judged on its own merit and in truth there may be no objection at all to this image. I just heard you say earlier that you were studying portrait and I just want to offer another posibility.

I couldn't make up my mind whether I liked this image or not. There was no middle ground, for some odd reason. Model is pretty in a petite sort of way.

Very nice portrait but the skin doesn't look very natural to me.

Wonderful portrait. Just love the contrast here. Perfect posing. And you lit up this charming face really well, you gotta love those eyes. If I would just do one more edit, I would be darken the nose a bit.

Excellent stuff. Wonderful light, posing and toning.
She looks familiar.

Amazing tonal range and not your average cookie-cutter model though she is beautiful. That is a good thing. Me like.

One word... WOW! I started doing portraits and I find it really hard to get the light right. Your photo is AWESOME!

Very charming portrait, where the tilt of the head, the direction of the eyes, and so on, are all just right. Well done!

Looks alittle over processed, but it's well lit and a great sharp shot. Those eyes just looks weird though im afraid.

Nice shot, dig the sepia toning, great image in my books, however skin seems a little too perfect and has somewhat of an overprocessed feel to it but nothing I let affect my vote.

What a beautiful portrait! It's simplicity belies the skill taken to achieve such a strong composition (cropped just right to make it really immediate and intimate), the lighting, the wonderful eye contact and the perfect background. I cannot fault a single thing. Usually I don't like such smoothed skin effects but it's all spot on here. One of the most striking portraits I've seen for a long time. And she's beautiful!

For some reason the eyes look "fake". Maybe a result of the post processing? They almost look cartoonish... Otherwise the photo is terrific. Great lighhting. Average rating.

Beautiful portrait, love the colour.

Great photo, although it looks a little to smoothed out. The eyes and skin look like a dolls. There's not even a wrinkle on her face. 6

super eyes

Nice lighting and contrast. Maybe a smidge overdone on the neat image. Her skin almost has a plastic look which is a bit unnatural. Great eyes. I like how you cropped it as well.

Elsapo (duh). I can spot your entries a mile away. I'd like to see a bit more detail or shading on the skin, but this is still outstanding, as usual. 9
