Wow, beautiful image! Love her eyes. Nice work on the B&W toning. :-)

I love this. I am adding it to my favorites. The expression is perfect...the eyes are amazing. I also like that she is leading out of the photo. Only one suggestion and it is very minor...dodge the end of her nose just a bit to give more separation.

Beautiful graphism in here I like it.

This is really well taken. Either of the subjects would be interesting, but together, they compete a bit. 7

Love the lighting in this photograph & DOF and those eyes. One of my favourites in this challenge. Good luck

Ah, very nice, but in my opinion shots like this should leave some space for the person's look... so i'd move the camera to the right, about 1/3 the width of the frame.

Fantastic contrast, lighting, expression, everything. This is top notch work.

Really beautiful girl, nice photo. Title almost ruins it for me though. 7

returning for comments:
Beautiful sweeping hair which adds to the composition. Good facial expression and lovely backdrop and support. The eyes are stunning. Bumping to 6

Excellnet portrait, seems a little tight on top, but you've got the composition and focus right. Nice capture of emotion

great shot. The soft lighting on such a pretty face is wonderfull. I'm not sure if the choice to use "what i'm assuming is" a birch tree was intentional or not. I feel that it works astoundingly well adding its own contrast to the B&W. The eyes are also very bright and well defined drawing me directly to the subject. One of my top picks of the challenge keep up the wonderfull work.

The face, expression, and tones are great. I am not a fan of the tree or the title. Her expression doesn't say that to me at all, but that doesn't affect the score. 7.

I love the expression on the model's face.

Beautiful eyes. Great lighting. Works really well in b&w.

This is a beautiful portrait. You nailed the lighting/exposure and the model and the tree both look great in B&W. Really excellent job.

I would have preferred her looking into the frame instead of out, but that's my personal preference. Nice tones, nice expression.

Beautiful. Lighting is excellent, as is the contrast. 10

Very nice portrait, sharp and a great model. Her eyes do very much for this shot. Good composition, and nice shades of gray. Good job.

A portrait that is very well done. Flawless technically and interesting title as well.

good eyes, wonderful bark on the tree, the sarf plays odd with the hair thouh, and confuses me own eyes though
