I quite like this, the angle is different which is always good, only down side for me is the overcooked eyes which look totally fake, but a nice job otherwise.

A picture that "DEMANDS" attention . I like the sharp and vibrant color

I think the hands as they are positioned here don#t work for me. And it's one of the rare times I would have liked the model to have her nails coloured as well. I like the contrast of the red on her lips with the green on her eyes. And teh black skin contrasted with teh black hair and the leather. Beautiful model too.

Thanks for the comments -
This image was more a timed retouch project, and at a certain point had to finish. There are already things I'm seeing that I didn't notice, that need attention.
@canon_stu, you raise a good point, although I would only adjust the eye whites as these are too bright.
@pablo, I like the hand positioning - I like the unusual, which is possibly why I like it.
Red nail polish would have looked good, and something I can address in 2nd retouch.

Really like V2 Grin. Would still tone down the whites on her eyes and maybe whiten her teeth a bit (or maybe if the eyes weren't so white the teeth wouldn't look dull Tongue), but it's a stunning image!
