Those eyes are so hauntingly beautiful, class piece of work.
If I may be so bold, but the peice of glass near the woman's left eye is a bit distracting, only due to the sharpness of the eye and I feel it distracts slightly IMHO. Still gets top marks from me though.

Stewart

Fantastic eyes and very beautiful young lady.

She reminds me of Amy Johnson in this very 1930's image. Beautifully done, as mentioned above, a class piece.

FYI.....

Absolutely gorgeous Jo, although I would maybe crop 14% off the bottom edge. Not sure about the stuff impinging on her left eye either. But niggles apart this is beautiful.
