    The black and white is nice, however the top right hand corner is too blown off with white - which makes it difficult to look at her left eye in particular or any of her hair.
    So, I would tone that down =) [​IMG]

    Yeah I agree with the eye comment. I like the pic (a lot actually) but wish that both eyes were clearly visible.

    I agree with the faded eye being a detraction from the image, but otherwise it is thought provoking. You look pensive, yet displeased bordering on angry to me - is that the emotion you want to convey?
     
  6. It doesn't really work for me. I would like to see a version where your hair line and the eye that we see on the right (your left eye) is fully dodged out as well, into pure white.

    I would burn in the chin line to the upper edge though, thus showing a lean face without the frame of your hair.

    ...and I would dodge in the lower nasal vestibule, darken it to the same tone as the nostril cavity. The overall effect will make it seem smaller.
