I don;t really see the intent behind such a close photo at the expense of focus.

Nice B&W, I like the tight crop. Your hair is a little distracting but you could always clone some out(just not too much). BB

great eyes.
12/09/2007 11:22:32 PM
Love the framing
12/09/2007 09:12:03 PM
Great perspective. I think the picture is just slightly over exposed.

Yeap. simple, clean. nice close-up portrait. If you had your eyes focused and sharpened, this could be killer. After the challenge, if you want try this, Take a similar photo, and focus on your eye, with tighter dof. Give duo color of your choice, not much though, and show us :) Good picture overall though :)

I think you're relying a little too much on the Plath quote to do the work of the portrait for you. Take it away, and there is nothing here that really says "Bell Jar" to me.

Good title that could have matched the photo, but it doesn't... I'm not sure for how much they don't match, but I know that they don't... something is missing, maybe sharpness, maybe engagement, or how about withdrawal?

Beautiful!! I like the softness of the light and the different light between the eyes

very vulnerable - love the feeling of this, in spite of the technical imperfections I'm sure the other voters are listing for you, this has HEART - that counts for tons to me. Nice work -

Isn't it "I am what I am and that's all what I am!" (Popeye) :)
12/05/2007 02:59:33 PM
I little bit out of focus and washed out. I like the expression in your eyes though.
