Thanks for the votes... this is of course my lovely wife Cristi who stopped what she was doing to pose for me last Sunday before the sun set... We tried several different shots, locations in the house, etc... but this is one of the best of the lot. Thanks for all the comments as well.

She is very lovely and obviously quite fair complected. I'm thinking I might have preferred a dark background - not sure. I do think I would have liked more definition in the eyes especially - she looks just a bit washed out to me. Voted earlier.

A sincere pose and smile. Don't care for the washed out processing.

Beautiful color tones and light. The softness is a plus; however, imo the eyes could be a bit sharper to bring attention. Still a great shot.

I readjusted the color temp on my monitor because I thought something had gone wrong with the video card. I like it - a very natural pose, interesting subject but the lack of real contrast between the dress and the face washes it out. What I'm trying to say (badly) is that the dress and skin are very similar in terms of color scale and everything just blends together. It would have made a really good image if the dress had been black or a dark blue.

Great pose. I like the soft focus... seems to be passe these days with everyone and their HD Portraits. I think the eyes need a touch more sharpness. Overall great!

Stunning. That opal is an interesting punctuation
