But some equal or better have got the same or less. It's all dependent upon what people like.

That's the problem with personal opinion - it can be a real bummer.

That was my feeling, the background looks like it's been worked on to make it black, but bits have been missed & I think flash used, which makes it just a little harsh for me, which is a shame as she has a great face.

As others say it comes down to personal preference, the image is far to harsh for me for others it might not be. I no longer look at how many people have clicked to say they like an image alone anymore, I divide this figue by the amount of unique views to get a more representative view. The Image in question has got just over a 1 in 3 rating which isn't to be crumbled at.
Nobody in real life has a skin like this.
The post processing let this portrait down (IMHO).

I did not start this group to argue over the photographs,the point was to highlight and renew images that may have been overlooked at the time of uploading, everyones opinion of a good photo differs (thank god) this was just as said to bring this and others forwardGrin

Interesting point, Yes its quite a good shot. Its on the edge of a vote for me. It taken straight on with on camera flash, yet still shows her features very well. Angled light may have made this even better? She is also straight on the the camera which seems harsh, and the dark background loses context.
Its a good idea to highlight good images once missed.

Maybe change the title of the thread or start one where people can link to shots they feel are overlooked. This one did seem specific to just the one image.

'Overlooked' to my mind means 'not viewed' - having fewer votes than another picture (which was your justification for the post) is quite a different matter.
If your aim was to get more people to look at a picture that you think deserves more consideration, I think you need to be more careful in your opening post and make it clear the thread is not the place for critique.
