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?

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

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

i played a bit with cloning out the necklace clasp. guess it looks alright although i'm sure i could do a more precise job.
anyone know how i could cover up that window in the background smoothly in photoshop cs3? i looked for a tutorial but couldn't find out...
