Nice tight shot, I love the clarity in the eye.
03/17/2009 10:19:35 PM
Yep. Nice detail and use of DOF.
03/17/2009 05:02:38 PM
With the focus on the eye, it would have been nice to line things up so that there was no reflection in the eye.
03/17/2009 11:47:03 AM
Lovely eye. Nice and clear.
03/16/2009 11:01:29 PM
Nice exposure.
03/16/2009 08:17:05 PM
Beautiful lighting and great clarity and color in the iris.
03/16/2009 08:16:15 PM
Creeping me out here...
03/16/2009 03:59:44 PM
Sad but true title. Very nice facial close-up. Lots of detail in the eye and reflection of a scene behind the camera. Good DOF.
03/16/2009 04:18:47 AM
love how soft everything but her eye is.
03/16/2009 03:26:55 AM
wonderful detail in her eye and makeup and an awesome blue
03/16/2009 02:43:10 AM
Beautiful eye! Love the color.
03/15/2009 11:54:42 PM
Good focus on the eye, and good colour. I would have gone with a different crop though.
03/15/2009 08:13:24 PM
Nice clear shot. The reflection over the pupil detracts a little.
03/15/2009 07:16:09 PM
Beautiful detail in the eye. Mesmerizing image.
03/15/2009 05:47:17 PM
03/15/2009 02:34:16 PM
Wonderful light and detail on the eye
03/15/2009 02:04:36 PM
Good shot. The eye detail looks good but the skin looks a but touched up or blurred.
03/15/2009 11:57:37 AM
Good DOF and focus, nice.
03/15/2009 09:41:55 AM
piercing blues
03/15/2009 05:38:48 AM
well... its a nice eye ;)

03/15/2009 02:20:40 AM
Beautiful blue eye!
03/15/2009 02:14:34 AM
excellent clarity on the eye , fantastic detail, 7
03/15/2009 12:15:01 AM
Excellent clarity on the eye. I bet this would also look great as a high key B&W.
03/14/2009 11:37:26 PM
Great idea, seems a little over sharpened or perhaps a resize issue?
03/14/2009 09:41:43 PM
very interesting eye, trying to see the refection
03/14/2009 09:17:32 PM
Nicely done, but it doesn't really do much for me. I'd also crop it up just a tad, the start of lip color is distracting. You did a nice job around the eye. The brown-ribbon deja-vu had a lot of bad eye shots--this one was done well.
03/14/2009 07:22:59 PM
great image - wish less reflections
03/14/2009 06:32:09 PM
The added sparkly eye make-up is interesting. I like the framing on the right side of the image.
03/14/2009 02:42:51 PM
Poor processing job under the eye, it looks flat.
03/14/2009 12:28:34 PM
Her eye really draws me in.
03/14/2009 11:52:37 AM
Awesome detail. Great DOF.
03/14/2009 11:07:33 AM
Nice effect. Beautiful eye!
03/14/2009 06:02:10 AM
great pp work and fantastic focus on the eye
03/13/2009 11:39:41 PM
Interesting capture.
03/13/2009 10:35:42 PM
Great detail, but I think a more off-centered composition would add a good deal of interest to the frame.
03/13/2009 02:53:48 PM
i really like the reflection in the eye, but i would prefer less exposure because i think youve lost some detail...8
03/13/2009 02:41:29 PM
this is beautiful. i like the dof, i just wish there was a little less reflection in the eye. it's stunning though.
03/13/2009 02:38:49 PM
Great catch light
03/13/2009 02:13:21 PM
good idea, IMO, the blurring should have faded into the sharp area of the eye more, it's bit too distinct
03/13/2009 05:16:19 AM
way to much work done to this shot. way to soft, and the eye is overly worked on.
03/13/2009 02:46:59 AM
Super sharp. I like the little fleck of colour in the blue.
03/12/2009 09:06:53 PM
love the little sparkle of a reflection! nicely done.
03/12/2009 06:01:39 PM
Post processing lost some definition in the eye lashes, otherwise well composed. I wish there were a little more detail in the eye though.
03/12/2009 01:06:54 PM
Amazing capture, the detail in the eye is out of this world.
03/12/2009 10:02:26 AM
Nice light and natural looking close up. I love the reflection in the eye.
03/12/2009 09:18:04 AM
beautiful reflections in the eye, great composition, very nice shot
03/12/2009 09:05:43 AM
Me too! :) Great focus on the eye, the rest of the face looks very heavily airbrushed though.
03/11/2009 09:01:53 PM
BEAUTIFULLY shot and processed. I might have taken that little bit of mouth off the bottom.

Not voting yet.
03/11/2009 08:47:41 PM
great skin
03/11/2009 02:33:52 PM
Lovely reflection in the eye. Looks like a landscape/seascape.
03/11/2009 02:48:19 AM
Beautiful eye. Nice sharp detail, although the skin is too softened for me.
03/11/2009 01:44:32 AM
ahhh, tweezed eyebrows!! excellent DOF, great tones and colors
03/11/2009 01:33:35 AM
Lovely eye color..
03/11/2009 01:08:35 AM
Pretty model. The way you've captured and presented her eye is dramatic. Depth of field really concentrates my attention. Well done.
