Ok...the little white speck that some of you complained about is from my eyebrow peircing. I'm used to seeing it so it didn't occur to me to clone it out. Wish I did.

Thanks for all the comments, I have never gotten so many on a single entry before.

The ap and shallow depth of field, the relatively hard light all make for excellent form and composition. One of the memorable photos in your folio.

I cannot believe that this didn't do better.
One of my favourited.
Well done Wendy. A beautiful picture. If it was done with a self timer then that makes it even more amazing!

This is a beautiful shot. I love the soft glow lighting on her face and hair and the light of the eyes. The expression goes perfectly with the pose. I do see the white speck others have mentioned, but other than that I would aspire to take a portrait as perfect as this one.

Oh boy howdy does this convey attitude. Well done. Composition is terrific. Eyes are spot on. DOF really accentuates the face. Among my top picks this challenge.

Detail is good on the face but her shoulder and hair is too blurred. Makes it look too unnatural.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/17/2005 03:03:34 AM
Something about this makes it feel too artificial. I'm curious about the line that parallels her left cheak--shadow? Post processing artifact? Nonetheless, a very worthy photo. Good job.

I love the soft lighting, very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/14/2005 01:53:26 PM
if I were able to do work this well and this were my entry I would have cloned out that tiny white spot by her right eye... but I'm not this good so who am I to say! But I can say this is a beautiful portrait!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/14/2005 01:36:36 PM
The only flaw, is the white speck over her left eye. Otherwise, perfect. Beautiful model. great lighting, sultery pose, eye-grabbing eyes. Absolutely beautiful image. I hpe it does well for you. Good Luck I'm a forgiving kinda guy when it comes to pretty women...I'm gonna pretend I missed that speck! <10>

Wowow!!! this is beautiful..I think i know this person, but not sure, so won't say. Awesome portrait!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Almost a painting like quality. Great colors too, with the gold of the hair and the blue of the eyes. Jus tone little nit: the focus seems to be sharpest somewhere _between_ the eye and the lips, and not at the eyes. I'd have liked at least one eye to be sharper...

great shot, but the little tiny white light to the right of the eyes distracts me. i'm not sure what that is...an earring?

gorgeous! My favorite shot of yours so far. You just glow here. Very ethereal. Lighting is perfect and black background just makes the gold in your hair pop. Very nice. bumping to a 9

great tonality, sharpness, and lightling! Great expression!

She looks very unnatural, like plastic. Her eyes are beautiful and I really like your composition.

I love the gold tones in this photograph. Fabulous eyes!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2005 08:15:57 AM
I like the sideways glance and the nice luminescence on her face. The hair coming off to the side as if windblown is a nice effect. I detect a slight bit of red in the eye on the viewer's left and might clone that out. Does she have an eye stud? Since you can't see the entire thing, that tiny speck of white is just a touch distracting. I like the crop that you did and the frame sets it off nicely.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2005 06:58:09 AM
the right side of the face (her left cheek) has some discoloration on the edge....did this happen during post-processing?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2005 01:47:29 AM
Very nice! Great eyes! my 4th 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2005 01:45:00 AM
Whew! Don't want to get too close! Good portraits express something beyond a pretty picture and this one does that.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2005 01:36:32 AM
Nice subject- my only NITPICK is that the lighting is too harsh for my liking, but still a very lovely photograph! Great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/12/2005 01:17:12 AM
sultry indeed, only distraction is the bright white spot outside of her left eye.
