My sister has the most beautiful skin and clear deep eyes.

Took this picture of her as she had just been in the shower and instantly thought of this challenge as she even had a "silky-smooth" look in her eyes being tired from soccer practice.

Hope you like it...

Very overexposed.

Nice shot of a very pretty lady. For me however... it is a little too washed out. A longer exposure would have given some contrast to her features and would have defined her "smooth and silky"ness. Sorry... had to drop it a point from what I would have given it. Good shot though!! (6)

This looks a touch over processed mainly in the hair. I also think a tighter crop would look better and bring her beautiful face closer (also eliminating some of the background stuff). She has a very pleasant facial expression. I can understand why you chose that title.

Nice pose and facial expression - I especially like the slight tilt of the head and the way she's engaging the camera with her gaze. There are quite a few blown highlights though which detract from an overall nice portrait.

I am not a big hi key fan just a matter of personal taste.
