Thank you everyone for your comments on this image! This is a picture I had been wanting to make for a while. Thanks are due to a lot of people: my model Mansi whose eyes I have been wanting to photograph since I met her :); sgauria and manic for helpful post-processing comments, librodo whose excellent portraits are the reason i got interested in portrait photography, and many other people here, notably john setlzer, from whom I have learnt a lot of things, both post-processing and otherwise....

What wonderful eyes! Beautiful capture and should do very well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2005 04:02:25 PM
A powerful photo and how true the title is, especially in these eyes. I really like how the blue turned out in the eyes and how sharp they are.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2005 03:56:02 PM

Beautiful! But he fake contacts are too much. Kinda freaky!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2005 09:36:34 AM
The eyes are just beautiful. This should ribbon for sure.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2005 09:15:17 AM
Yes, they are. Great eyes and a great idea. The blue scarf works very well. 9

Title tells me this is a eye shot (as I wait for the image to load) - yep. Great detail!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2005 05:57:50 AM
great job on the eyes
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2005 04:53:55 AM
Very striking eyes, and so clear too. For me, it would of been nice if there was no white showing in the pupils.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2005 04:25:12 AM

The eyes are so alive.
Well captured

Those eyes... Whites are a little blown out along the left.

Beautiful eyes!!!

Perfect focus on her eyes. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2005 01:35:17 AM
nice eyes, great colors.. a tighter crop would have removed the ditracting too bright left side.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/23/2005 02:04:38 PM
Nice shot. Have the eyes been processed? 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/22/2005 07:00:29 PM
cool
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/22/2005 01:25:00 PM
Beautiful!
Improvement suggestions: image is too hot on the left side. I would not crop it though as the composition is perfect as it stands right now. Perhaps a slight curve adjustment would have helped.
Eyes - there is a light reflection in the retinas - something you could have tried to ameliorate by cloning or burning...
Still think that this will end up in top 10%.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/21/2005 04:33:56 PM
Love this. The composition is perfect, pulling the eye of the viewer to the eyes of the lady. And what wonderful eyes they are. Beautiful!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/21/2005 02:44:24 AM
eyes are too bright not enoufh dept and pupals are too sharp instead keep some grey in eyes and up saturate the color
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/21/2005 12:30:05 AM
Eyes, scarf, excellent. Eyes -- incredible. The white space on the left I'm not liking so much. I would have preferred it cropped more on the left with possible white space on the right -- the direction she is looking, sort of.

One of my top 3. 10 from me. The only thing that I don't like is the different color border. But that is me and I am not taking away for that. Beautiful shot keep up the good work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/20/2005 01:58:36 PM
I've seen about four of these. Decent shot though.
04/20/2005 08:53:33 AM
Beautiful... i like how the scarf goes together with background.

awesome image what lovely eyes top pick from me 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2005 04:19:27 PM
pretty colors but the eyes (contacts?) look a bit fake
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2005 02:33:41 AM
Great eyes. The blue material helps bring out the color well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2005 11:49:53 PM
Beautifull, emotive and captivating one. Have my 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2005 10:17:06 PM
Beautiful......simply superb!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2005 07:43:27 PM
beautiful eyes! the only drawback in my view is the trace of fingers in lower right corner - either show more oof the hand or noting at all.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2005 07:11:06 PM
Beautiful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2005 03:51:24 PM
How did you do those eyes? Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2005 02:13:24 PM
it's a nice setup, but the eyes look fake... are they contacts?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2005 09:00:13 AM
this concept has been overdone... but it's still pretty nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2005 08:08:40 AM
The flare on the left spoils this image somewhat and the eyes although beautiful don´t look natural somehow, imo ofcourse...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2005 03:40:47 AM
Great Capture. Great Eyes

Great focus on the eyes and matching with the scarf
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2005 12:22:11 AM
Those eyes are absolutely hypnotic. Great lighting and just love this photo in general. Reminds me (as does another in this challenge) of a very famous National Geographic photo of the Afgan woman.
