Just so you know - I LOVE THIS IMAGE!!!!!

I had a totally different idea in my head, but just couldn't get it to work out exactly right - this is sooooo much better anyway.


My model - Grace - was perfect! Her dreamy look was spot on. Thanks!!

Someone asked about processing - a little Urban Acid and some eye and lip pimping.

I have to admit.....I am a tad bit disappointed......I really wanted to make top 10. Eleventh place.........so close!!!

Very beautiful! I love that her nail polish is chipped. It makes it seem like there's more important things to her than perfect nails. :)

This type of coloring really is popular now. Great eyes! the hearts are a bit of a secondary element not exactly the subject. I like the pose and the title fits the image well. The red does jump off the image. I like the color the nails match the lips.

I'm not a big fan of this type of processing that gives everything a green cast, but I really like this photo. Love her gaze and pose.

I love the emotion in this shot, her eyes looking to the distance and her expression make me ponder "what she is pondering".

Great job.

Nice portrait, gets a 10 from me. The distant/lost look is spot on.

Nice composition and it conveys a reflective tone, but I am not sure that it is terribly visually appealing to me and feels a little over processed. What is happening with her nail color???

Nice focus, beautiful focus on beautiful eyes.

Gorgeous portrait. Those eyes are amazing. There's a lot of depth here. There's so much to look at, because it's all so well done.
