Great texture on the lips and colour.... and good contrast between the green eyes and blonde hair. Very Hitchcock-blondesque.

A Classic Shot

WOW. I think I said wow first time. Your eye color and your lips just rips my screen. Technically perfect shot. Idea, execution, composition is very good. Excellent photo overall :)

The half-shadow works for me--that eye really pops. Nice lighting on this.

Too much neat image or blur

gave it an 8 for the eyes.
12/09/2007 02:31:41 AM
wow awesome eye color
12/07/2007 12:17:17 AM
Love the focal point on the eye. Nice effective use of sidelighting, wish the crop wasnt quite so tight but overall a very nice shot only thing I wish the skin wasnt quite so smooth. 7

I like this alot, a very classy shot!
12/06/2007 04:07:59 PM
great composition and light and use of DoF, but I think IMO you went a tad overboard on the processing... skin looks too porcelain and the eye looks over-saturated.. but maybe thats what you were going for i don't know! good luck 7

I like how you kept your lips and eye in focus but allowed the necklace to be just OOF. The green in your eye contrasts from your lips in a good way. Nicely done. BB

Very elegant! Love the soft light.
12/05/2007 10:46:08 PM
It should have been titled "pearl" and not "pearls". The pearl of the picture is that beautiful green eye which gets all the focus. Good luck.8.

I love the soft look of this. It might be a little too over the top on noise reduction, but it works well. Very pretty.
12/05/2007 08:06:37 PM
did you use NI for your skin? If so, it looks a little too smooth. If not, congratulations on having such nice skin. I wish the composition was not so tight. LOVE the red lips though!
12/05/2007 07:23:03 PM
I little too much neat image and processing..nice try though
12/05/2007 06:01:03 PM
Super sharp on the beautiful eye, great lighting and DoF. I am no expert, but the lipstick seems to have overshot the lower lip. I won't hold it against you though. :)
12/05/2007 03:21:29 PM
Beautiful eyes! Great shot!
12/05/2007 12:50:47 PM
Oh how classically beautiful and elegant. This is a gorgeous portrait! I love the softness of it while not losing any clarity. Excellent!
12/05/2007 09:39:48 AM
Pretty image. Well done.
12/05/2007 08:41:56 AM
I think this is very nicely lit, the face seems as if it has just a bit much of neat image, but the eyes are still sharp so it works nicely. Good work.
12/05/2007 08:29:30 AM
really nice pic, just a tad too much skin smoothing for me....6
12/05/2007 08:05:47 AM
Bright colorful eye, but it is way up top and distracting. Remember the rule of thirds.
12/05/2007 06:14:09 AM
Wow this looks like it could have been shot in the 1920's (not because of the technicals of the shot, rather the look and composition) Fantastic SP and the intense shocks of colour in terms of your lipstick, eyes hair and pearls works brilliantly given the low key background

Excellent work - maybe a tad too much in the computer!
12/05/2007 04:22:31 AM
classy, stunning
