wonderful portrait! great colours and nice exptression! wish you would have taken it from a bit higher so that the nose doesn't hide the second eye, but I still like it very much! 9!

Wonderful. I would have liked a little more contrast but that's just me.

I like your pose, your choice of backgrounds, and the effect on your eyes. The background is simple enough that it does not detract from you but at the same point is has a great texture that really adds to the picture. It is my personal opinion however is that the dark gradient effect isnít adding anything to the picture. Good luck with your picture.

I'm lost with this image, I don't know what to say, I can't find anything to grab my attention here. Well, maybe this is a reflection of my state while looking at this photo. But then, why would a photo want to make me feel like this when I look at a photo? It's a spiral of thought... Well, the left eye is not covered nor exposed, so it looks not so good.

Nice, simple. I like the style :) Ok, things that bothered me: your background, and softness on your eyes. Background could be something better, or something far, and your eyes could be more focused and sharp. Overall is a good photo though :) I like the dark shadow framing :)

Very nice ligthing. It almost makes your eyes look ghostly.

nice expression
12/07/2007 02:10:23 AM
one of favs in this challenge...excellent angle, exposure, processing, all added to natural expression. I like the texture of the wood behind and the desat.

The vigneting also works here but it could have been a bit more subtle. Congratulations and best of luck!!

Lighting is a tad harsh on face.
12/06/2007 05:02:41 PM
nice and tasteful editing choices, lovely soft light, for some reason though I wish the background was different, just feels too suburban to me (i dont mean that to be insulting!) anyway, 8, good luck!

Great use of lighting.
12/06/2007 09:38:09 AM
Wonderful lighting. Soft. Almost like an album cover. Crop could be a little better. Need more space up top.
12/05/2007 10:59:15 PM
Simple and nice. Good lighting. 7.

Sweet pose, nice expression. I'm not sure if your getting ready to smile or getting scared?!?! BB
12/05/2007 09:18:43 PM
what beautiful eyes! nice shot
12/05/2007 05:44:59 PM
A little too soft and muted, but lovely. Portrays strength, beauty and character. Nice job overall.
12/05/2007 05:32:44 PM
love the softness of the image but the background really doesnt help the photo at all
12/05/2007 03:18:18 PM
Your expression shows amazement. I like it.
12/05/2007 12:18:21 PM
I really like the vignetting and lighting on your SP. Great expression also. Nice work.
12/05/2007 12:16:05 PM
Pleasant portrait. I just find your left shoulder a bit over exposed.
12/05/2007 09:28:06 AM
Nice image. The focus and light on your eyes is nice.
12/05/2007 05:46:25 AM
This picture is perfect except for that darn background. Those eyes are incredible, a little "pimping" and they would stand out.
12/05/2007 01:28:49 AM
The vignetting here seems a bit strong and it could be a bit sharper, beautiful eyes though and great expression
12/05/2007 12:15:48 AM
nice lighting... only complaint would be the brightest part of the light is falling on the mouth rather than the eyes.
