the selective desaturation does not work at all for me on this shot. The girl is beautiful and either b/w or color would have worked SO much better.

Nice photo but WAY over processed.

In my opinion this photograph misses too much color.

This could be a lovely,incredibly beautiful,portrait, but as it is there is something about it that is just off the mark. There appears to be a silver sheen over the model that I find rather odd, almost as though her skin and hair have been partially desaturated. The result is that the viewers concentration centres on the model's lips and eyes, but (for me at any rate) to the point that those are almost all I see - as though the individual is no more than her features. Hmm, I'm not sure I have articulated my thoughts very well here - I wouln't normally invite this, but if you want clarification, drop me a PM

Beautiful!! Great light and composition. The eyes are the main focus as they should be. Good job!!

Her eyes are a little strange. Maybe less dodge next time. I like her postion though.

Really appreciate your restraint in muting colors here. It makes the shot much more dramatic.

Seems like a really good portrait but the colours and saturation are ruining it. The face looks almost grey? on the plus side the composition/pose/focus are excellent

cool composition and great light, i just think this is a tad over-processed (even by my standards :P) still a 7.

Here eyes lookk weird. The whites are too white I think. I love the photo, but it's weird at the same time.
