I like the crop and side light. The soft focus works well.

focus more on the eyes,

This would be really cool if there was a little more light in your eyes.. I like your choice of close zoom/crop.. 7

This image sort of reases the viewer. Since these features are so pretty we all want to see more. It appears that the focus is more on the forehead than the eyes, but who pays that much attention when what you are seeing is so pleasant. Bumping up.

for some reason (amiture as it is) this image grabs.....

the resolution isn't perfact but it is well framed...and that is what makes it as aposed to some other images in this challenge.... this 1 makes u want to see more of the face...my best insight into that is the fact that 1 can see a nose ring and the top of the nose but it isn't completted...... that might get u killed by other voters, but i feel that is the only thing holding the image together.

the skin has very nice warm tones i only wish the eyes where brought out more in color otherwise it should be in B&W.

very nice shot though GL

I can tell you are pretty lady, I just wsh the eyes were a little better lit. At least the one in the shadow. Its a nice take! 7

I wish the eyes had been more in focus.
Also, the tones od the skin are a bit too yellow IMO.

The eyes are great, but the nose ring either needs to be there or not be there to really make this one great. Not slamming the nose ring; it just distracts from the pic as is, and a good portrait ALWAYS emphasizes the eyes, in my opinion. Good luck! 7

Wish this shot was a tad sharper

Great eye! Would have like to seen more of your obviously pretty face. Nice job!

Great composition... The eyes are justifiably the best detail to draw attention to, but the partially cropped nose ring is distracting; in this shot is doesn't seem to contribute to who you are, it just draws my eyes away from your eyes, which seem to be the real subject.

pretty eyes

I think I know who this is, but regardless, just superb.
