This is just stunning ..... the colours and the detail are superb, and the clarity too .... you have captured her eyes so beautifully! It is an image full of mystery and beauty. Well done! Now I am off to see the previous one you talk of!

I like the eye contact. I think the colour of the veil works well with the background, the image appears to me to have a 'mysterious' feel to it.
Cracking image, I think I prefer this one to the first.

Wonderful portrait. The eyes are so beautiful & focused. The colours are just perfect. You should have waited till the morning to publish. I hope it gets the deserved clicks. Where was this taken?

Martin,

Both are superb, but for me it's the first one because the eye contact is more a subtle, more of a fleeting glance. As I said though both are excellent images…

Cheers,

Gary
