A stunning portrait.
The light in her eyes really adds drama.
Well done.

This is a beautifully composed image. My only quibble with this is that the point of focus seems to be on the material of the scarf, not on her eyes (or even the eye closest to the camera). If that one eye was in sharp focus, then the rest of the image could be as soft as you liked and it wouldn't matter! I know hindsight is a wonderful thing, and we'd always do things differently after the event, but this is such a powerful image that I feel the focal point lets it down, which is a shame. Having said that though, the tonal range you've used is lovely, with just a hint of pinkness to the lips, and the catchlights in her eyes make it very compulsive and almost hypnotic.

Thanks gconant and TanyaH. I should have paid more attention to focusing on the eyes. I have tried to rectify this and have posted more examples. Please let me know whether you think it is an improvement. Often rectifying a problem just creates more problems! Regards Bernard
