Ditto what Aussie and Caroline said, Tim. Very well captured.
tim hitchins: thank you very very much Kaysmile
a very impressive portrait, Tim. Though, I'd disagree with the girls above. I think you overworked the eyes. You wonderfully composed it (I switched to the white background to check), so a light frame might benefit the shot. Otherwise, a pure pleasure of a work. smile
tim hitchins: yes Victor the eyes, hmmmmm i looked and looked at this but her eyes really are amazing and green too and i just thought "go for it" but your quite right, most appreciated m8smile

I also think the eyes are a tad overdone.

But I think the black bg works here (I did try the white too) and I'm not a fan of her being almost dead center. Maybe crop off the black since it blends with her face.

Still love the shot. Wouldn't it be nice if we could steal shots from others. smile
tim hitchins: lol yes Otokpa it would, cheers for the critic m8 its reaaly appreciated for suresmile

The eyes! I see the "debate," Tim, but must say they see right through you and some are like that. In that regard, in B&W they could seem eerie. But with her sweet face, I 'spect her eyes are a charm in "real life." I do like how the right side of the image fades into the background.
tim hitchins: yes Ginnie the eye's lol, must say she has amazing green eyes and i thought they deserved to pop so to speak so be itsmile very much appreciated Ginnie and have a nice daysmile
Superb portrait Tim. Better for me on a white background. Maybe a little less on the eyes but they are compelling!
tim hitchins: i have yet to try the white background Bill, will have a look. Cheers m8 and enjoy your daysmile
It is beautiful!!! I love it
tim hitchins: really happy you thought so Cristina, have a nice daysmile
Such piercing eyes Tim. Works well.
tim hitchins: maybe a tad over done Bernie but what the eck i like it lol, glad you thought so toosmile
A shot to be proud of, Clarity Contrast a Beautiful shot. From the Eyes it looks like Natural Light too?

This is a little scary, Tim, but wonderfully presented and atmosperic. Been playing with eyes a bit myself and it's amazing how much they can change a photograph
Great eyes...
