I love this one! I find natural beauty to be so much more alluring than a painted face. The subdued tones in this picture accentuate the natural feminine power in your beauty. I'd be interested in seeing any pics you might have without any makeup.
i can recommend you that when you retouch the skin, try to put a light layer of digital paint on the image, i can see clumps of parts that are totally smooth and then parts that were left alone, it's not very fluid.
and quite a beautiful photograph, too. you look very serious in this one, and the color looks as if it's been desaturated, but it's a striking portrait -- I love the light in your eyes, and your features (your mouth, your eyebrows... I could go on!)
You've done an incredible job with the eye color in this. Your face and jawline are beautiful as ever, of course, but this is about the image. It is a very serious look- intense but calm. It appears that a soul of more advanced years is peering out from your young face.
Wow. You're beautiful! I like the mostly monochromatic sort of feel (im not very well-versed in photography so i mean, here's my best go at giving you crit!) and the contrast between your eyes and skin is very nice I think there's a bit too much editing going on with the hair. Gorgeous!
