Interesting idea, and I like the title. I think the lighting is good overall, though strangely enough, the ring looking catchlights are slightly more distracting than normal shaped catchlights to me. Good background color and DOF as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/22/2006 08:02:37 PM
very nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/22/2006 05:48:27 PM
it's lucky this challenge allowed for 720 pixels instead of 640 so the title would fit.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/22/2006 12:48:34 PM
amazing eyes
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2006 07:33:17 PM
This is interesting. I wish the eyes were more in focus. The light you used was interesting. Is that some form of a macro ring light? Anyway, still a good shot. The DOF is helpful. Nice shooting.

OK, I'm not 100% sure but my guess? Shecoya. Lovely eyes anyhow!

beautiful eyes, nice job
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2006 05:31:25 AM
I like the color contrast a whole lot. I think th elittle touch of skin and purple on the shoulder neck is distracting. Nice clarity and depth to your exposure here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2006 01:06:07 AM
Great idea,good job, I think the depth of field is a little shallow
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2006 12:58:25 AM
ah. .someone I understand .. looks like I am not the only one who don't like having their picture taken .... nicely done .. and good emphases on the eyes .. an intersting catchlight if not a little bright.

Stunning eyes!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Amazing how much you can say with your eyes. Great sharp rendition and color, a very effective shot. In the picky-picky department, the small amount of uncovered neck tends to distract the eye from your face.

nice lovely eyes .. :)

I like it how the skin and eyes stand out in all the greyness and how this is positioned in the frame,
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Yes the soul can speak through the eyes. Amazing. Great shot.

I like this one. So simple, but still so rich of feelings.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2006 12:33:32 PM
Shecoya? I love your eyes here, your title is perfect as well. Awesome DOF and sharpness make this a pleasure to view. Well done!

You are hypnotising me. I have to vote and move on quickly, there's no knowing what you'll have me do :)

What amazing eyes!!! Great focus. I like how you are off centered too. Bumping up.

Very nice - can't see much of you but what I see looks good.

You really went to town on the make-up there, Rikki. ;>)

Seriously, good composition that leaves a sense of mystery.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2006 06:55:56 AM
They are beautiful eyes, though seem to be opened a little too wide for it not to give a slight sense of the odd. Lovely composition, lovely DOF.

fink i recognise you! :)

05/19/2006 04:32:16 AM
I love the swallow DOF.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2006 02:44:19 AM
Wow, great image! Love the title! I wish you had just a little more light on your right eye. Focus, lighting, DOF are all dead on. Great studio image. <8>
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2006 01:52:38 AM
*I'm blushing* :) Although the getup doesn't feel right for a studio shot - it seems more like you're pulling a Bank job - I will gladly hand over the money cuz your stare is hypnotic. Love the DoF also. :)

I like the way you cropped this along with the color arrangement.
