This is a beautiful photo but I think the effect on the eyes ruins it. The eyes are directed outward, so to say, the title suggests this person is lost in thoughts, which means a focus on inwardness. So what you've done with the manipulation -- despite the technical skills you have and the beautiful colours etc. -- does not fit with the conceptual content your title suggests. I know that people sometimes don't like criticism of this sort but maybe you could react and tell us what you think binds the title and the photo together. I would appreciate it for you're a great photographer. Best regards, Bert
lovely idea, very well done, the high-key works really well
I love it. Just fantastic
Beautiful shot but I agree the yes don't need colour. They show emotion without it.
I like the shot very much - it's a beautiful study and the eyes are terrific as they are IMO, but I agree that their apparent focus is outward and not inward.
It certainly is a stunning photograph. I would like to see an upload of one without the colour in the eyes, to compare.
Looked at this and saw that HenriAntoine (and others) have already expressed my thoughts: really lovely portrait but be nice to see without the selective colour
B E A U T I F U L high-key portrait...good composed, and beautiful eyes...I love it.
What a beautiful portrait. emotional even, The eyes are good, it puts the capture in a class of their own, I guess without them it would be just a beautiful classic shot. click
I'm with the crowd on this one. Its a brilliant shot which I really like, but I'd prefer to lose the eye colour.
Cracking high-key portrait and selective colouring, makes it look a bit spooky!!!
Fantastic, pleasure to see.
Excellent portrait, a most effective piece of digital manipulation.
I love the eyes. Top portrait.
I like it :o)
Superb portrait - i love it JP
Good portrait mate nicely done, the eyes for me have ruined it, keep it simple and let your photograph shine. Other than that though top class.
A lovely high-key portrait, though I agree the eyes detract from it.
This is absolutely lovely. Penny for ...
Lovely image, is this the same lady that was at Focus? I quite like the selective colouring but would maybe prefer a blue tone. Sandra
stunning portrait - like the high key effect and the selective colouring - well done
Lovely lady given a lovely treatment. Bruce
Phil excellent portrait and love the focus on the eyes!
Excellent portrait. Doesn't need the selective colouring.
I love it with the selective colouring its a fantastic high key portrait and i like a hint of colour each to there own. You've done a great job and do what you like you cant please everyone. Denise x
Hi Bert thank you for your honest opinion and comments they are very welcome and appreciated.
I will be totally honest by telling you I was going to delete this image altogether as I shot a number of images at the time but this was the only shot in that pose.
But I thought I would just have a go at trying to make a silk purse out of a pigs ear.
After playing about in PS I thought I would post it here not expecting much response to be honest.
Anyway I needed a title and after much deliberation and a pot of tea.
I returned to the image and after another look I wondered what was going through the models mind at that time.
Hence the title Thoughts.
And I felt it fitted the picture.
super work Phil`!... think its great!
Don't know how Pete missed this one! it is one of the best I have seen on here
Stunning, excellent work indeed, the eys are just what was needed to make this a hit! Spot on! Click!!!
Phil...This is stunning work....just love the work done on the eyes...
Stunning portrait Phil, love the eye detail and colour. So beautiful.
It didn't need the selective colouring, a stunning model, and i do like the effect you use.
