    Nice shot, really draws you in.
    The chain clasp is distracting though.

    Like Mike said, this image really does draw me in.

    The clasp doesn't bother me, I glanced - but your eyes pull me right back. This the kind of effect normally achieved with color, but you've done it in B&W. Nicely done.

    (00) Hello Sarah!!!

    Beautiful eyes.

    Engaging- very nice shot. Maybe crop out the bit of window on the left though?

    thanks very much!
    stupid necklace... didn't think to fix it pre shot :S
    my girlfriend is beside me sleeping in the passenger seat haha
    not the most flattering...cropped out - but yes cropping out the window is a good idea too.
    thanks :)

    thank you!
    ya, kept the eyes colour
    the lighting was just right for this shot which is why i think they stand out
    eye reflections give too much away ;) hehe
    thanks again

    Terrific shot! But I'd clone the clasp out.

    Nice shot... You've done well choosing not to desaturate the eyes. They enter so well in the BW treatment.

    Cute photo Sarah - love the eyes.
    I wouldn't be over-concerned about the necklace - it doesn't take from the shot imo :p
