    The background is distracting.

    The blue eyes and expression are beautiful. I like the background, but I think it would also be nice without it as well.

    Nice job Jemmy!

    A very sweet portrait! You did a wonderful job showing us those blue eyes.

    The bg is a little distracting...but after looking at it for a second, it becomes second to those beautiful, blue eyes :)

    I do like that you got away from the traditional boring backgrounds.

    thanks guys... i knew that not everyone would like this one with the effects i put on it but decided to put it up anyway! i really liked the original (hard not to with a bub like her!) but am playing around with texture layers to come up with something different. basically, i desaturated the pic, brought back the amazing blue colour of her eyes, brought back the colour to her cheeks and lips then added patterned layers. i have been working on a few of these... i guess i would like to offer my clients something on top of the standard portrait. what i'm planning, is calling them 'contemporary art images' and offering them printed on canvas only, then having the canvas custom-framed with a frame to compliment that particular design. i have been getting great reactions from non-photographers so was interested to hear your views. x thanks, and please keep the comments coming. x jem x

    I think that would make a really nice christmas card. Fancy yet personal. I like the background but not for a portrait on the wall. Very neat!
