Beautiful model. I have to keep coming back to look at this shot because there is something about this model that draws me in. DEFINTELY should have ribboned and by far my favorite of the challenge! SHE is an extremely captivating model!

The crop is great and I really like that (w/ only one exception as subtle thing that I would like is the loweing of the shirt; she and the shot has just great soft curves the shirt breaks it up for me., the DOF is perfect - literally. The main thing I dont like is the color cast, its kinda greenish-blueish throughout.

Beautiful portrait all the way around... from your model to the composition and lighting. Love it, my favorite so far and I expect to see it in winner's row. :-)

Amazing eyes! Lovely photo, cant say I would change much - a little more contrast maybe?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

there is a strong yellow cast on the picture, look at the white of her eyes. But if you correct for that you will have a fantastic portrait. Great expression, great crop, nice and close, beautiful girl and make-up.

Would have been very effective with a telephoto lens.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2004 03:02:52 AM
um...yes. The always lovely Anastasia looks justa bout perfect - lighting, tones, depth, and of course...genetics :)
Best pure portrait in the challenge I'd say.

A good likeness, but the straight on expression just doesn't project any personality, especially with such a tight crop. The shoulder is way too strong a foreground object.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/18/2004 10:02:37 PM
nice portrait of Anastasia. :)
I am not sure I like her cheek cut off like that, but I like her eyes and her expression. nice tilt to her head...feels natural.
a bit of a green cast.

Great Model and Great Expression on her face but may be little problem on her face :S mainly on chicks....
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful. I like the cropping here, making this portrait well balanced.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2004 08:28:02 PM
Very nice. The cheeks seem heavily altered tho. Did you do a lot of cloning and/or touch up there? It's very hard to do that right especially on a close up face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2004 04:46:47 PM
The framing is fantastic and the colors, angle of the shoulder, the lines of the composition really work. The look on the girl's face is really timeless and unique at the same time. - 9

beautiful girl, shoulder is distracting as is the 1 grey hair in the eyebrow...6
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2004 12:22:23 PM
This is an excellent capture. I can't think of anything I can suggest changing. The tight crop works well here, and really shows off those great blue eyes! Nice work.

Beautiful name, beautiful girl, beautiful portrait. The composition is excellent, I love the crop. I would have dodged the whites of the eyes a little to make them a bit lighter, it would also have made the blues stand out more. Also I would have stamped out that bothersome hair going across the right eyebrow. This one will do well!

Nice portrait. Woudl have prefferd to see more of the model and slightly less tight crop. A personal aspect of taste though. Well done.

Really lovely lighting and a good composition. I love hte rich skin tones. The colour is pitch perfect.

I love her eye colour! I'm so jealous! lol:) 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2004 02:45:55 PM
Great shot.... I am a bit bothered by the green tint her skin has in some places. Maybe a tad bit lighter too. It is nice and clear, and I like the crop.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful eyes. Nice tones and shades. Very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Simply stunning! It helps to have a pretty subject -- immeasurably, but of course you executed everything perfectly too! Close contender if not the winner! On second glance, I suspect you did a lot of touch-up work on this photo which is challenge legal. I get a "painted" feel about it.

great cropping and colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2004 05:58:09 AM
Great model, good pose, good composition. A bit too airbrushed and cloned. You could have left some blemishes in and it would have looked fine.

Great detail and focus Nice work!

A little too tightly cropped for my taste, but I like what I can see. An 8 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2004 03:25:22 PM
A really great portrait,nothing to choose between this and one other going to give you both 9.good luck!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2004 01:02:47 PM
Very pretty. And I know this is going to be the killer but that white hair on her left eyebrow is distracting. My eyes jumped immediately from her pretty blue eyes to that. Also, the shoulder is too outstanding. Add the other one fro balance. BOL

A lovely portrait with nice close crop, nice touch of framing from the shirt edge below, and nice close crop to create a feeling of intimacy.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2004 12:49:42 PM
Lovely girl lovely blue eyes. I like the focus, light and crop, but don't like the 'neat image' or what ever you used on her skin. Good entry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2004 12:10:00 PM
this really jumps out at you saying wow ... 10/10 , one wee point IMHO is the hair above the right eye needs plucked ... as it is very noticable - but still a great photo.

Beautiful subject, terrific tight crop, fantastic angle! 10+

She's a beauty alright. I like the composition here. I also like how her eyes are the first thing I notice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2004 04:15:36 AM
This is a gorgeous portrait, beautifully controlled lighting and DoF. The skin tones are so smooth - I will be interested to see what PS tools you used, if any! Attractive crop to complete a great composition. One of the best.

03/15/2004 12:34:33 AM
My mouth just droped. Lets say, you need a blue ribbon to mach those blue eyes. Outstanding job.
