I'm actually using a Canon S5 IS but as I couldn't find it on the dpc I selected the S3 (I hope that won't be a problem). Curves and levels, converted to b/w using channel mixer and sharpened it. Cleaned the skin a bit using clone brush and that's it.

Great shot, composition and expression, the light is to flat, though.

I find the sunglasses rather off-putting, as though I can't see past them, and can get no feel for the person behind the mask.

I like the look, but her expression seems a little pained

think the glasses spoil this photo, everything else about it is so natural but the glasses with there reflections draw your eyes away from the face more. omo. good luck

Pretty woman, a slight hint of a smile would have been nicer, but overall, a stunning photo.

Black and white is nice here and the DOF works nicely to put the emphasis on your model. Nice.

Could use a levels adjustment to get a bit more of a grey range on the subject. Seems a little flat
