I decided to take advantage of our first snowfall of the year by trying an outdoor portrait. It's been raining for quite a while so it's been hard to get outside.

This is my first attempt at advanced editing so I followed most of the model makeover tutorial by ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Brad.

Great effect on your eyes. You didn't go overboard with the editing and blended it well.

The whites of your eyes are whiter than any other whites in the photograph. Kind of unnerving. Other than that, I like it. 6

Compelling eyes. Crop more off the top to fill the frame with your head. 7.

Simple, clean photo. Nice composition, Eyes definitely taking attention here. I think it's a nice portrait photo. Not much going on, but it would do the job :)

wow... great color!... there's not light in your eyes though.. (the flash) just makes it look like you obviously painted in your eyes... Very NICE though !

Really nice photo but your eyes are TOO much...

take it down some and make it match yourself and you'll have something nice.

They eyes seem a little overdone here, but this is a great photo, I like you DOF here too!

What's with all these people who have no blood vessels in their eyes? :-) Though this really makes the eyes reach out and grab you in this shot. Nicely done.

I think they eyes are a little over processed

Nice work... you nailed those eyes.

Centered composition, and it works! I like the wintry color palette.

I think you picked a great background for your SP. Your eyes are bad ass in this shot. Nice work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 03:16:54 PM
Wow! Eyes!! Gorgeous shot! My only complaint is the title. I wish it was more related to your eyes seeing as they seem to be the focus point of the picture. Great shot though! Good luck!

brave, honest self portrait. Good job. Something strange seems to have happened to the whites of your eyes though
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I think you over did it on the eyes. They are too white. If you had not done so much whitening of the eyes, I think this would have made a much better portrait. 5 (Would've been a 7 had the eyes been done better)
