Love Jenn's comment about flawless skin, and as you say, it's the eyes that really make the shot,

A marvellous portrait Lillian, as has already been said many times before it is the photographer and not the camera. I've seen some top images taken by people with compact cameras like Carol G for example and some right rubbish by people with all the expensive equipment.
