vastly under-rated in my opinion.

Magnificent eyes (both genetically and photographically speaking). i like the tight crop and the model's expression. The blacks in the rest of the photo seem to lack the same depth as those in her eyes...a little judicious use of the burn tool on the shadows might even it out a little. overall a very nice entry.

pretty eyes and great lighting, but she feels a little "glazed over". I try to overcome this look by having my model explain stuff that's important to her - then her eyes look more "alive" with the conversation behind them FWIW

great eyes - lighting is a bit harsh

I find the focus on other than the eyes TOO soft. The contrast with the focus on the eyes feels very very un-natural to me. 5 for cropping and light. I hope you don't think that too harsh.

OK, this, generally speaking, is a pretty good photo. The big plus you have going for you here is that it stands out a mile on the thumbnail screen, I daresay you have loads of views. Scorewise I will give this an 8, a touch more contrast would of bumped this up to 9, but its a tiny bit flat for my liking. Regardless, I wouldnt be surprise to see this in the top ten next week.. real good effort..

A very cool study. Focus and detail on the eyes is amazing ... well done

nice use of bright light, yet you didn't lose the eyes....they are fantastic!

GJ on the eyes, but I would have liked more contrast with the face. Maybe more shadows.

The catchlights are a bit distracting. Try turning the girl to the side a bit.
