    Thank you Mike. I'm really happy with this wonderful result...
...that could easily cost me another pair of new shoes. :-D

Hi friends! Thank you all very much for your nice comments and your votes.
Puh, I don't know what to say...
I've always mixed emotions when I enter pictures of people. Some day I have to tell them, if the shot came off well... Thank you all so much for helping me out this time! ;-)

    LOL! Michael, you are amazing. Thanks a lot!
Lo nailed my intention. Both of my shots came out a bit too dark, and the colors seemed to detract from the main thing. The high key effect fixed it, imo. Although her eyes have really beautiful colors, I liked it better this way.

Thank you all very much for your nice comments!

...Alby, me too...

    This one just grabs me. Love the blown area - it really works! The thumb and finger are just right. I'm guessing this is the mother of all those beautiful kids!

Nov 1, 2010
    Yep, that is what coffee is meant to do ...interesting use of overexposure ...TT

    Love what you accomplished by working with the highlights to turn this into black and white - I think the lack of colour really brings the attention to these beautful eyes

Oct 31, 2010
    Emh...I think i'm falling in love with those eyes....
Superb model!...And a great capyion too!
My n 1 surely

    The huge blown area which basically bisects the image (never a good effect unless it is for an obviously deliberate purpose) really hurts this otherwise well conceived and executed image. As it is, it makes my TT, but just.

Oct 29, 2010
    So from low key to high key. Well done, the main element the eyes are perfect and the photo tells a common story we can all relate to. High in my TT.

    so much fun with digital photoshopping
