Oh, I so knew this was you! You are a "signature" portrait artist. I would recognize your photos anywhere. I love them here, I love them on pBase. I am your long-time secret "stalker" :-)) The colours are so incredible in all of your images. This one just totally pops.

Back for bump and comment. What makes this shot so powerful in my opinion is the composition. Using the veil and pose, you lead my eye around the photo only to return to the eye. Excellent lighting and processing. My only nitpick would be the saturation in the blue, it's calling for attention.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2009 10:11:27 PM
For me, the absolute best portrait in this challenge, hands down. I have nothing critical to offer. Couldn't be better IHMO.

Manny? If not, then it definitely has his feel! colors are amazingly saturated without being overdone. I could look at this for hours. Her gaze is mesmerizing. 10 from me.

03/16/2009 10:46:02 AM
Excellent portrait, the colour works,the focus on her eye works, skin yes, It all works! Well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 08:45:49 AM
The colors and pose are great. Elegant model and the lighting and focus is spot on. The one thing that distracts me is the reflection within the pupal of her eye. I takes away from that eye-to-eye contact that this photograph needs. With that said, the distraction is minimal and only effects my score by one point.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2009 08:19:21 AM
The range of colors and how the contrast/complement the skin tone is wonderful

Absolutly beautiful eyes! The only thing I see that I would change is the position of her hand. It makes her head just a little disconnected from her neck. But an all around georgous photo

03/12/2009 11:57:04 AM
My word, this is fantastic - the only thing I might nit-pick on is the appearance of some haloing on the underside of the chin, perhaps more noticeable because of its proximity to the centre of the image? 9
