I love this image! you really have a eye for portraits. Thanks for the fav or Dream Play. It was a long shot but I loved it. You are talented beyond your young years. Stay focused and do not sell out your vision. Can't wait to see what you do next. btw-love the young girl pics too!

The subject is just too dark and the background too bright for me.

I simply like portraits of aged faces... Only the face tells lots of stories.

You have the basis of a super portrait here, but I suspectthat you got the exposure wrong in-camera. The tell tale processing signs, in particular the halo, are too visible.

great detail, a tad brighter would have won me over, 6

Too dark - lightening it a bit to clarify the face and a tighter crop on the left would improve this shot.

Oh! I wish this where a little brighter and maybe in b/w. Very nice gaze.

Nice idea. However, if I'm not mistaken, you used the blur and masked around the outside (If not, my mistake) and you left yourself a halo around the lady which I can see, and I think others will too. Perhaps next time you should use the select tool and select the area you want to blur so you don't need to mask it out, and then it MAY leave less of a halo. Or you could go in a little closer if you had the time and patience to do it bit by bit. I would have also dodged the darker portions of the right side a bit more to bring out some detail. Otherwise, nice shot. 6

This would have been a much better capture if it wasn't so dark. Too hard to see her wonderful features and expression.

Nice capture, but I don't like the burn on the background.
