Very nice portrait, and I like the darkened edges, but would like to have seen just a teeny bit more light on the face.

Lovely shot, I think I remember this shot during a challenge and it won a ribbon. The expression is perfect, and tells such a story. Wonderful composition as well. Nice job.

Beautiful. What a story she tells with the texture of her sking and emotion in her eyes. May have liked to seen a tigter crop on her face. Still well done. Good Luck. 7.

perfect composition, bold contrasty colours with perfect exposure. Not much to complain about here.

a tighter/square crop would have been better as the detail on her face looks exquisite...as it is, the sides with the fake vignetting draw my attention away from this great lady...in any case, it's nice 7
