"Cheeky eyes," it might be, and in a certain way, I can see why you would have chosen this title. Now, we have a tiny problem because the hairdo receives more attention than the eyes, and the focus finally settles on the spot of dark shadows. What is sharper then? Obviously your subject's hair falling on the forehead, not the eyes. In addition, the eyes suffer from another problem created by the reflected light. Yet, in spite of this flaw, I think you have captured the essence of a cheeky attitude, and I just love this. Just another comment, normally one would say crop the extra space above the subject's head. But, I think you are absolutely right in adding this fleeting space because the viewer is asked to look from bottom to top, and in a diagonal way. Bravo, Holly, keep up the good work and continue sharpening your interest in photography. Smile
