Too many choices for this free study without landscapes.
I decided on this 'Librodo' Style shot. I have so much respect for Manny Librodo, the way he captures emotion in the eyes, I have tried to replicate this with my humble entry. I really like the shot a lot and hope the voters can get a feeling from within the eyes of this young, beautiful girl.

est score - 6.5
dream score - 7+ (anything over 7 these days is amazing)

this is one of the most beautiful images of a person I've ever seen. I'm a huge fan of the soft focus and it's so perfect for this, I can't stop looking at it.. One of my favorite images of all time.

Look at that score your commenters gave you. In my opinion -- that's what this deserved. Its shocking to me to see some of the photos that beat this one out. Kinda makes the credibility of the voters seem a bit (ok alot) lacking.

It is an exotic, soulful photo that could not be improved upon in any way!

How in the world did this not score better! I love this shot. You did an excellent job framing her face - and that fabric is perfect. My only (minor) complaint would be that the light is just a tad harsh on the left side (however, that may just be my god-awful monitor). Great work! You deserved a ribbon, imho.

The soft focus is good. But the eyes only could have been sharper than this.
