This is a shot of my ex on the morning of her 21st. It's completely natural, there was no set up for this other than prodding her in the head. I don't expect for this shot to do amazingly but as I've just joined as a member I didn't have much time. This is definitely my favourite shot of last year, I hope you like it too :-p

pp - black and white with green filter
selective dodging/burning
noise reduction


I'm happy that this shot did as well as it did, wasn't expecting much more! This shot actually got posted to the "explore" page on Flickr during voting.

I see her face and one arm, maybe a hand, but too much other limbs, not sure what they are, which is interesting. I would have liked to see more of her face.

I like the DOF in this image. I even like the whites in the eyes.

nice expression and the eyes look great. I am not terribly fond of the composition and would like more contrast, but not bad overall.

i love the expression on her face - but there seems to be a bit much smoothing done in the post processing

Brilliant eyes, and I love how the tousled hair matches her cheeky look ;)
