No moustache this time Smile (Didn't see the last one however). Great use of framing, shadow and those amazing eyes.

Lovely eyes and nicely exposed. My preference is for the way you have cropped the colour one, as it has more sense of mystery. This one is still worth a click though.

Very dreamy, yet powerful. click!

I think it would have more impact in colour Lyne, Marias eyes would say it all. There is a visible line at the top under the border too but the exposure is fine. Not convinced the border is working its almost hemming her in. K.

She is such a beautiful young girl Lyne. I love this as it is but agree with K about colour too. Maybe you could post the same tomorrow with Marias eye colour

Wow Lyne, this is beautiful. Maria looks very mysterious here, as if she is wearing the veil.

Thankyou all so much for your comments, i think i will try a colour one.
k i didnt notice the line in the border, i think i need glasses,because i posted one before this one and had to take it out, when maria saw it because she said it looked like she had a mustache,and when i had a closer look it did,i must of adjusted the colours to much lol i do need glasses. thanks all lynex

The b/w has a very interesting and mysterious vibrancy strong but delicate. Well shot Lyne.

Thanks all for your comments lynex.
How i did this i took a close up shot changed it to B/W added a layer,then with the Eraser tool went round the face i wanted to keep ,then hue /saturation lightness move it all the way to the left and that should make everything black except the face, and thats it all in photoshop hope this helps, thankyou all lynex

Absolutely beautiful eyes, for me the bottom half of the face doesn't work so well, the taper shadow, straight crop and angle make the lips seem a bit thin.
