good idea. I live the eyes and the rose. I think the "nose" takes a way from the image a bit since it is high key. Still good framing of the subject.

I would like to have seen you go all the way to white on her face, in true high key fashion. However it is a really good shot with lots of possibilities, and I think it should have scored higher.

I can't believe the score in this one. You got robbed big time. I gave this a 7.

This rocks! I love the high key approach and the desat is well done. The rose adds a nice touch of softness to balance out the high key.

Nearing the end of 500+ image trawl of flowers and eyes I thought I'd seen enough of them but tis is very special. Tremendous graphic quality and impact. Lovely pose and lighting I really do like this, you deserve to do well.

Beautiful eyes, but Im not a huge fan of the over processed skin tones.

Potentially a good idea, but this has a "high-key" feel with muted tones... In other words, the face is too grey. Or it's blown out and then darkened... either way it doesn't work for me. - 4

I would like to see a bit more detail on the face.

Not sure I care for this, and I think it's because it is such a contrasty photo that everything looks fake.
