A really stunning example of monochromatic/colour splash photography, which has all the right ingredients, mixed up into the right amounts, and cooked to perfection.

I really like this. You don't notice the blue eyes at first, then it's all you can look at Smile Lovely quirky smile, great soft tonality and nice framing.

I looked at it large size, and one thing that doesn't quite gel for me is the right hand brim of the hat (starting in the middle) seems a lot softer than the right hand side of her face underneath it (which is also further away in terms of depths than the brim, so would therefore be the same softness or more?). I don't know if that makes sense or not, but can't seem to find the words today to articulate what I mean!

Yes I know what you mean I have it on my desk top at the moment and I think did i do those eyes blue enough, then when you look at it they are very blue already Yep you are right about the hat how that came about was, I was not happy with the 'cutting out ' so I blur the whole photo then un-blur the eyes. I will double check that next time thank you for pointing it out. Any help is good help
