    The first two look way over sharpened. I like the composition of all three.

    I like the first two, the third is a little flat. I think you have the eyes in focus but they are appearing a little grey. You could try selecting just the eyes and adjusting the levels, even just an auto levels should bring out the white.

    Nice! She looks like a mermaid for some reason. The first frame is on point. The background works well and her smile is priceless. The second is a little rough. I think the horizontal lines are distracting. I like the angelic glow in the third photo, but it resembles a mug shot

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for your comments.
    I use a Nikon D70 with a 90mm Tamron lense.

    I personnaly like the 2 the best...

    I decided the 1. was no good... should have done the focus on the othe eye :(

    After your comments, I also changed few things on the second one and pit the third one in colour since I couldn't find any B&W that would suit me.
