Leopard spots! (horray for google, im not that smart). I really like this photo, your stare is quite piercing, almost hauntingly so. My only knit to pick is your choice of framing. I dont think the height adds anything to the photograph, I'm kinda cropping the bottom 1/3rd off with my hand and I think it makes the image more stable and effective. Cutting of the bottom places your eyes right in accordance with the "rule of thirds", and anyway, below your neck appears grayer and flatter and just detracts from the interesting stuff around your eyes. Nice job and GL, 9


I agree!! The bottom half adds nothing and in fact distracts from your hypnotic eyes and facial features. A square crop would probably have brought this into the top 10. Congrats on a great shot and making top 25.

I thought this would have scored higher along with Jojo's, because they are both just SO striking! I love the makeup you've done. And the stare! Congrats on the 25!

Anatolian (Panthera) Leopard - Awesome! Your mouth looks great in this expression. I like B&W's also.

nice eyes, composition and BW effect

A very pretty face. Good composition. Nice makeup. One thing bothers me in this photo is the softness. If you'd have better focus, or little sharp eyes, or better yet, colored eyes and rest bw... you probably would go through my brain like laser :) right now, it bounces back from my forehead :) Show us some color eyes after the challenge is over please :)

nice make up
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 11:02:53 PM
Beautiful. Love the way hairs are flowing down. I feel a little more sharpness around those beautiful eyes would have made it even more stronger composition. Goodluck.9.

What incredible, piercing eyes! Excuse me while I fire up my defibrillator... :) GREAT job.

I really like your composition and look. The editing on your eyes really enhances them, and your overall beauty. Lighting works well, but your B&W conversion really makes this pop. Nice work.

Hypnotic stare! Kinda freaky looking makeup. Well done.

Captivating stare. Very nice.

While I like the tall crop, a square around the face would have made the interesting part larger on the screen.

your eyes look so beautifully fierce.
great photo
