yes, good title, she does come across as vulnerable and fragile.

Lovely lighting too, nicely done.

The anxiety has certainly worked in favour of this portrait. A beautiful mood captured, and I like the composition - I felt that she had 'come from somewhere', but the look on her face makes me think that she has a long way to go...A lovely portrait, and the catchlights bring the eyes alive.

Is that your favourite wall?

Quite an intimate portrait, I thik she does look vulnerable, spot on. Seems less polished than usual, but that adds to the natural feeling.

I hope you dont mind me saying Martin that I am aa little suprised at the award, given that it looks like sometihng has gone very very wrong on the post processing around her neck and chin; (clearly seen when viewed large!?)

I might have cleaned her forehead up a little and perhaps removed the shadow from the line of hair down her face.

I'm sorry, but with my images having to be perfect, I'm just a little confused at this one?

I like her expression and you have definitely conveyed her feeling of anxiety but I have to agree with Jules with this one.....there is clearly a piece on the chin that is suffering from the processing . It looks like its been pasted in and then not blended in ...... and a lot of noise underneath her neck with the colour breaking up and leaving almost posterised effect.

Whoops partly my fault on this making a HC. I have no excuse - I was drawn to the eyes so the photo did its job (she has a fabulous expression), but that posterisation is bad and Jules, for once I agree with you.

Yes Cathy I saw that too. It really shouldn't be a HC, so I hope Martin doesn't mind losing his award on this one.

Bit suprised to see that these eyes particularly drew you to give the award, ignoring everything else? Although I'm sorry to say it, but this instance kinda solidifies my whole view on the awards debate.

Anyway, enough said. Dont want to get into a clecks/award argument on Martins pic.

Opps mea culpa. I hadnt noticed that , it was late!
I think I lightened her neck and accidently 'over sprayed her face' .
Now you have pointed it out, I cant see anything else!
If I do it again, can I have my hc back? Smile
