I immediately thought of Sin City when I saw this photo - wonderful graphic representation. Those eyes are penetrating.

Lovely execution here! The amber is such a winning relief on the b/w. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

very nice portrait. it could possibly serve as a nice head-shot if she's an actress. good job editing, and I like how her eyes match her hair

Sin City, right? Excellent work, beautiful photo, and the added reverberation with the film gets a bonus point from me.

Love this shot. I am new to photoshop and would like to know how you keep here hair in color without mising single hairs. 10

Wow, I really like this one right down to your inset line being the same color.

the photo itself looks very nice and is well lighted, but I think the way this selective desat looks, is a bit weird, probably because of the colored eyes.

beautifully lit and i like your use of selective color.

Striking eyes... very pretty girl. I notice that there are some imperfections in the desat around her ear and cheeks, but can't really decide if they are intentional or not... if they are intentional, perhaps a very slight (re)saturation of the lips would help indicate that. The pose and composition are nice, and the lighting is quite good.
