The lighting is lovely, and the shallow DOF is great. I also really like the eye - the way it almost looks green and brown. Awesome shot!

I reckon this picture deserves a much better rating. But it's just my opinion.

I can never help it but comment on all the beautiful girls I see in the pictures on dpchallenge site. I love this picture, sharpness, colour and the beautiful eyes. exposing half the face adds that mistery to the picture which i love:)
well done!!

Nice soft color. I like how the focus softens for the more distant hair.

and half ... beast? Would have had more power if our face was divided exactly at the middle I think, but in any case, it is nice.

Very pleasing composition here.....

I like the silvery eye. I would probably have had your entire head and hair in focus. That blurred part in the middle is a touch distracting. Good lighting.
