Technically stunning shot. Sharpness, color and framing are simply amazing.

Hm...I prefer your moodier shots. 'Happy' and 'heida' next to each other don't seem get along to well. Cute girl though. Congrats on the top 10 finish.

Stunning, enlightening shot, Heida. I didn't vote on this one; didn't like enough of them. But this is superb.

Great focus, I am drawn to the eyes.... Which is where I should be drawn to. Excellent work!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2005 10:36:36 PM
when I think of a happy picture like this, I think of more vibrant colours... a little too faded but love how the eyes stand out
  Photographer found comment helpful.

great execution in focus/exposure, great subject, great smile/eyes, composition good but maybe a hair off???
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 07:46:32 PM
Beautiful face and freckles but they seem to be washed out a bit.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/04/2005 06:30:00 PM
This is a great portrait. You captured a wonderful expression. Nice lighting, and the desat really works. The hair line seems a little oversharp though, but nothing serious. Reminds me of the girl from "Periwinkle" from the Fairy Tales Challenge.

05/04/2005 05:06:11 PM
you've got my focus right on the eyes - lovely tones, your model is quite good at expressing "happy", you are a good team - one of my favorites this challenge

05/04/2005 11:12:28 AM
Great coloring in the eyes but the face is way too bright
  Photographer found comment helpful.

lovely capture. The eyes tell it all! 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/03/2005 09:49:26 AM
Great portrait, wonderful expression in the eyes. Lack of detail below the head doesn't quite work for me though, as well as the shallow dof especially around the mouth.

Wow, great eyes! I love the "lightness" (is that a word?) of the image. Great clarity, tone, and sharpness. Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 08:32:37 PM

very good shot, and good use of the selective focus; those eyes really shine!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 06:09:18 AM
I felt it has too much of a washed out look for "happy" - just my 2c
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 03:36:24 AM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2005 01:18:00 AM
Ouch, a stunning photo. The uncertain jaw line and some sort of post processing effect robs it of the knockout punch. 8.

05/02/2005 01:14:10 AM
Nice shot, everything seems in place can think of anything to complain about. But it does make me happy :). GL
