    I like it.

    Reminds me of a Dove commercial and her eyes are really nice.

    The Dove commercial analogy works!
    Did you use a fan to blow her hair?
    I like the way it looks.

    Nice indeed!

    I am just finding that nice shadow on her shoulders lightly distracting (separation lighting would address that) and I feel it is very lightly overexposed (maybe a 1/3 or 1/2 stop). The hair is cut off on the left a little.

    I'm really nit-picking becuase there is not much else to critique. This is a really nice pic.

    Great shot but the eyes still need work to bring out the colour and take out the red.

    I love the movement of the hair. She does not seem to be reacting to it which is interesting.

    It's beautiful! I'm just missing a little definition of the chin. Without it, you lose some of the 3-dimensional feel. Your wife is gorgeous! Let's see more! :)
