She has wonderful eyes but I feel the angle is not very flattering.

I think the background green compliments Sherry's hair, more than it does her eyes and her expression seems quizzical, as though she's wondering what you're doing. The lighting seems a bit too harsh and the shadow on the wall is deistracting. Also, I don't particulary care for the angle of view, and the slanted sofa in the background. Gives a kind of bizarre appearance to the image. Still, this pic is interesting, possibly because of what I discribed above. I may come back to revise my critique.

This would probably be voted higher without the confusing shadows in the background (have her move forward) and with a tighter cropping of the face and/or cropping verticially instead of horizontally. Good luck on the challenge.

This is a good picture, but if you would have only the eyes I think it would have been stronger.

Great colors, great clarity and an interesting composition. You captured her wonderfully.

The angle of the shot and the harsh lighting detract from this photo for me. If you were on eye level, and the subject was either farther from the wall, or there was a side light to overpower the shadow, it would have made a better shot.

Could crop closer to the eyes since they are the defining feature in this case....

The lighting and composition are pretty good. The shadow on the left side is distracting, though.

Its good color portrait but not sure if its best croping... bit too tight on chin...feels like she hits the border. I like bacground color but i found that its too flashy... when moust flashy should be her eyes. Maybe Im wrong...
