Is Oct 15th your birthday or is this the 10,151st photo out of your camera!? JK The focus is a bit soft for me but I like the sepia tones here. BB

Nice sultry look. I would have cropped the top out. Jenn?

Crop more off the top. There's too much area there that allows the vertical line bisecting your head to become distracting. Otherwise, a very nice shot. Well lit, good soft focus.

Very nice glamorous shot! My only thoughts would be to blur out the corner behind your head, or crop closer.

soft and sexy. Could do without the corner coming out of the back of your head.

I love this photo; couple of things bothers me though. Softness is nice, but on the eyes, it feels like out of focus take. You should of show your necklace more, it's very nice. Also, you probably should try a flat background instead of corner. It looks nice, but takes some attention from your eyes. Nice photo overall :)

beautiful.the only thing that bothers me about this photo is the line coming out of the top of your head, it tries to pull my eyes from your eyes. but still a great portrait. 9

Beautiful is today's most overused word for me. But so it be:

nice glow effect...

Too soft for my taste .
Softness suits well to your beautiful hair and the eye contact is good.

The lighting is interesting, though i think there is a hot spot on the forehead. Congratulations to you if you have such beautiful skin, but otherwise, looks like NI overdone

Beautiful but seems a tad oof.

Too much blur for me, and I think the picture should be wider to see more of what is going on.

Very sensual 6

I like this shot but I'm not sure why you chose to produce it in sepia. I would think that color would have made the image more stunning.

nice soft image

Soft and sensual...nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very glamorous!! My only nit would be to crop off a lot of the top to put more focus on the face and eyes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 10:09:56 PM
Oo love the softness:D

I like the soft focus and the tones but would crop off the top where the corner of the room is..

It seems almost glamour shotish. Not a word, but I love the shot. Great composition and lighting. Great tone, and the eyes look lovely. Nice work.

Playful and sexy. Good use of gaussian blur/glow. Great "come hither" expression.

Not sure about the title, hope you explain. Glamouresque, but maybe just a little too much so.
