Goofin' around with a friend of mine, didn't actually expect to get a shot I liked this much.
I like it, I think if you cropped out that little bit of upper lip it would have more impact.
Some post processing would make this tons better. Great eyes!
I tried a crop without her upper lip and it looked kind of awkward to me. I kind of wish I had taken it to include the whole bottom half of her face. And there was already plenty of processing done, I didn't want to make it too extreme haha.
Nice eyes, but I would have also suggested a bit more cropping, but I understand why you didn't, maybe B&W ?
I would try to smooth the skin a bit in PP. The "imperfections" drew my eyes right away. Super easy to touch up and it would make a big difference.
+1 on needing more post processing for the skin. No one has perfect skin so it is a necessity and not a knock on the person. google some tutorials on smoothing skin.
scroll to bottom on do the mouse-over to see how much better it makes this pic
