An excellent retake, Gaby! The shot looks awesome. Everything from the lighting, color , focus. I do sort of prefer the roundish curly shaped heart in the 1st post but this is some great work here.

This is really awesome. Is that a contact that you have in your eye or did you actually edit that in??? I think I am going to try this with my my wife.

Beautiful! I tried a shot like this with just half my face and it didn't turn out nearly as well.

The hint of the story would have made it a dramatic portrait.


I love cliche! :D I have to say also that this was the first and only idea that came to my mind about the topic (`cause I mostly I wanted to play with PS), never tought about doing it the way you say, but it sounds interesting actually. Anyway, we all have a way to think and act, this was mine. Thank you for your comment, maybe some other time I`ll do a portrait like the one you say :D

And thank everyone elses for your comments :D

Awesome! I like that you included a little more of your face on this one. Yes, I do like this one better than the first, although I think the pupil on the other one turned out just a little better. Beautiful job!

Loved this shot before, love it now. The lighting was more dynamic in the previous version but other than that, this one is better all around.

Oh man. That is AWESOME!!!!!! Love the heart shaped pupil.

Yes, this is is definitely a much better photo. How did you produce the tear? Onions? Plain water? Natural?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is great. The lighting in the heart makes it very natural. The smaller tear works well, too.
