beautiful shot; well done on the lighting. There is just a touch of green in the hair, but not much.

Also; you have the most incredibly captivating eyes I've ever seen.

Thank you for being a great teacher. This is an amazing self-portrait that I shall keep to study. I know my lighting techniques will improve as I study yours.
As an artist, you are truly blessed!

Hola! Greetings from the Critique club.

This is a beautiful portrait, and apparently got high marks from two who should know, Anastasia and Kiwiness. Crayon, Philup, and hotpasta too. I like getting comments from people I respect, sometimes more than getting good scores.

I think I agree with tryals that this is a wee bit too green around the edges for me. And I do not find that the blur helped only becuase the editing was a bit spotty, meaning that it was a bit too obvious, and doesn't seem to be evenly applied. Doesn't mean that you didn't, just means that it doesn't look that way. Either go dragan, or not dragan, this is a bit in between.

I love the pose and the eyes are just gorgeous. Very demure expression nice whites and catchlights.

Color balance is a little too green on my calibrated monitor, but the expression is marvelous

skin tones look a little on the green side

This is a beautiful photo. The blur helps to set apart the eyes which, I feel, are the strength of the composition. Rich colors, strong whites, good 'attitude'. 8

She kind of looks like a computer animation, and the skin looks slightly plastic-like. Here eyes however, are very nice. : )

There is a beauiful luminosity about this shot. The highlights might be a tad too hot, but overall it glows.

Nice processing, especially the eyes, not overdone at all. The lighting is fitting, I think I recognise this model?
