Thanks for your comments and tips. I look forward to entering more when I am reunited with my computer - I am away for Christmas break.

Happy Holidays!

would have liked to see more of the forehead/top of the head. Image seems unbalanced.

Your crop is unique but I like nice tight cropped images. The angles feel a little off or something here; I find myself staring at your chin. BB

After a long voting , finally a portrait I could call portrait. Loved every pixel of it.

One of my favorites.
I have seen two times all the photos before voting and this one has catched me inmediately , the look is hypnotic.
I also like the B&W , this gives more strength to the image.

For some reason I keep coming back to this shot. You've created a lot of emotion with your style of processing and your expression. Nice work.

Very OOF, and too soft. I like the expression though.

Like the look and effect, not the composition.

Very pleasant picture.

Gorgeous tones and I love that expression, the tilt of the head, the face framed by your hair, the processing, the grain... pretty much everything really! : )

Good crop, good tonality.

Interesting crop, works well, I also like the treatment. Good luck.

I would have titled it "Stoic" - but I'm just burned out on "Pensive" as a title. :) Not gonna ding you for it though. Really terrific and subtly dramatic (if there is such a thing). Well done.

yes

I like the editing on your SP. Lighting is right on and composition works nice. Nice job.

Beautiful, moody portrait, I particularily like the shapes created by the light areas, the heart shape of the neck/hair mirrored in the general shape of the face, the upside-down heart shape of the lips. My one complaint, I wish there was just a smidgeon more at top, so that the right eye (or left in the image) were not almost cut off. ~9

I really like this one. The processing fits so well with the expression and the pose. I love how it's cropped. I think you did an excellent job!

Love the way hair flow down. nice processing and soft focus. goodluck.9.

it reminds me of Janis Joplin for some reason. I think it's the eyes and expression.
