I like this alot, I do think that the whole image is a little overexposed,{to bright}. It could just be the difference between my monitor and yours. 7 Kevin

I LOVE IT! It's so cool. The very subtle, overexposed look of the skin allows the eyelashes to take their place as the subject of the photo. The reflections in the eyes are big and bold, creating a sense of space on the other side of the camera that I like. I'm giving this 10.

challenge met. i like the format for this photo, it focuses you right where you need to look. i think that's necessary, too, without your title i wouldn't have immediately caught on what the before and after is. did you consider flipping the photo so that you don't have after and before? i like the overexposure here, it works, again, it makes the viewer focus on the eyes. i also like that you have catchlights in the eyes, the drawback of that is that the camera and the tripod are clearly visible, which i find to be a distraction. i wonder if you could've positioned your camera in front of a wall and then have a light from one side to still achieve catchlights. still a nice entry :)

nice idea but the difference is too subtle, esp with the over exposerd look

the concept is nice, picture a little to washed out to see definition.

Nice. A little too bright though and without the title I would have never guessed the before and after link. Sorry, no offense.

Nice high key shot. Looks a little soft in fhe eyes though. No biggy. Good luck. Jacko. 8

I would have likes to have seen just a little bit more difference in the eyes. Maybe you could have done a fake eye lash or something to have really made it stand out. Before I read the title I really didn't notice the difference. With that being said, I still really enjoyed seeing this photo. I really like the over saturation of it. Very Nice!

Would have shown up so much better in natural color. I really like the reflections in the eyes. The way it is it is too washed out, especially on the bottom part and the bridge of the nose. Great idea and concept just needs better execution and color choice.

Nicely done and unique idea. As a female I appreciate the often amazing difference a little mascara does make. Your example is good but not dramatic enough. Yes, there is a change but I think it could of had more impact. Maybe you could of and added some eyeliner? I do however like this shot, and admire your work. Score 8. Justine

Looks over exposed IMO.

Washout city. I do like this pic even witht he white out. It could be a little less washed out though to make it better. Well taken - Inspzil
