Congrats on this excellent image, Paul! I can totally relate to sitting naked on the kitchen table getting tangled up in the curtains - happens to me at least once a week. :P

I know what you mean. Here it is with just a bit of added definition, no other edit at 100% from the RAW file:

Her whole head is behind the curtain, her hair covers most of her right side of her face. We just see her mouth above the locks of hair that cover the chin. Her nose looks odd because it in contact with the fabric and causing a shadow on the fabric.

I'm sure that clears it up.

This is what I'm seeing - a sort of melted, half obscured face.

We are seeing her left eye (on the right for the viewer), that upper quadrant of her face and the rest is covered by a sweep of her hair. Does that help? :-)

Have a look at it here. It's a larger version and may be clearer.

Intriguing image, congrats on the ribbon. It's disconcerting to try to focus on her face. Is she wearing a mask, or am I seeing things?


Her whole head is behind the net curtain so it's partially opaque.

Does she come with my cup of coffee and bagel in the morning?

All jokes aside, absolutely love this image. Just not sure about the covered face though.

Extremely awesome. The lighting, mood, and lines created with her body are very engaging. The scenery is neat but I think it would be a stronger image without.
