Nice "fill the frame" and the brightness of the green in your eyes is great! Cool photo. BB

Interesting shot, very intense.

Its a really cool image, but to be honest with ya, i'm not digging the black and white conversion with the color pop in the eyes. Now, if this was in real life where you painted the person black and gray, that would be cool...

but i can tell its photoshoped and i see this to much already... But the composition is amazing.

Sweet close up. The eyes are bad ass and the composition is perfect. Lighting works well also. Nice work.

Well I am very envious at the way you have brought out your eyes. Very very powerful whilst not feeling over done in the least great framing with the hair as well
