7 - Nice portrait of Alice. Like the 'low key' effect. Just like to have seen more clarity/light in the eyes.

Very nice... not much improvement possible... beautiful dog, great portrait...
I guess as it was an advanced challenge you might have lightened the eyes just a little.. but that is being v picky...
great work... should be up there with the leaders!
