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

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!!!

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.

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

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.
