I can see that the eyes were blatantly dodged with processing software.

great shot, try bumbing up the contrast a little bit.

Very Nice, I like the fact that there isn't another one of these in this challenge. The Eyes really stand you, and why shouldn't they. Beautiful.

Excellent composition. Sadly the lighting is flat and the highlights are overexposed. A 4.

Nice pastel colors. I like the way the eyes are framed.

A great image with many implications, but the sheer adornment charms the eyes. 7

I'd crop a little off the top and bottom. It would make the hands more dramatic.

needs some level adjustments and some dodging and burning.. but a great subject and good idea, love the colors.

This is a very fun, colourful photo! I would have liked to see a slightly deeper DOF - the out of focus jewelry that is a bit further back makes the whole thing feel slightly blurry, even though it's not. I think it's that they're not soft enough to be totally out of focus, and therefore draw the eye. Speaking of eyes, it would be great if hers stood out a little more, too - maybe burning the darker parts a tad and dodging the highlights - that would give her a bit more mystique. Regardless, I really like this picture - it's unique and colourful, and the general composition is pleasing to the eye. The smoky looking backround compliments the subject, too. Nice job - some minor editing on the eyes would really make this fantastic.

Even thought this shot seems a bit overexposed, I think it works. The girl is beautiful and almost puts me into a trance when I look at her. Compoisiton is excellent and sharpness and clarity seems pretty good. Her eyes are absolutely captivating. One of my few 10's for the challenge.

Not sure if my monitor is pale or if the photo is a little too light but I love how the eyes are piercing through the fingers. An original shot for sure.

Her eyes are just awesome. She is a very pretty woman. The skin tones are on the money. Well shot. Good luck. 10

what a fine view!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very pretty. Needs more contrast, and perhaps more saturation.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Original idea for this challenge, too bad light is too harsh on the model ....makes it loose some of its impact.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Good use of the full image. Tough lighting to work with, looks like midday sun. Her face is washed out, particularly the eyes. The hands are very interesting.

Great photo, maybe needs a touch more contrast.8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2005 05:03:03 AM
A little saturation.... perhaps? just lacks the vibrancy one expects from a great pic like this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/23/2005 07:02:36 PM
Nicely done!
Using her fingers to pull attention to her eyes works here.

The colors seem muted.... Otherwise and awesome shot. 9

Great subject, and very nice colors.But the position of the hands has left the eyes in complete shadow, and the only light is on the tip of the nose. If the hands are placed farther away from the face in the same position, the shadowing wouldn'thappen... Also, I'd try a tighter crops, maybe around the top of the scarf from top, and a little below the chin from the bottom, I think it might help the impact.

This one is fun. Love the lady's muted eye color and soft pale skin.

This is a good image..the hands create a lot of interest and the slight overexposure adds to the mood.

This is an interesting shot but the eye area looks a bit washed out.. possibly over dodge? not sure... Interesting none-the-less :)
