Don't normally like eyes closed images, but this works really well.

I like this, the crop and conversion to monochrome works well. But I still think Del 1 has the edge.

I haven't commented on yours for ages, but came for a look after your comments on mine...

I really like this. It has a very serene, seductive quality, and is both contemporary and timeless. Could be a shot of Joanna Lumley from the 60's. The closed eyes give it a sense of intimacy and feeling. I can really imagine this as a large, quality framed print.

Some of the skin looks a bit blown, but I'm sure it isn't, and the screen I'm looking on right now isn't great. I was also wondering, from the perfectionist point of view, if you might not want to very slightly lighten the skin around her left eye, and remove the slight veining (only because it's not present on the right)?

HI Steve
Thanks for the comment, you know you are always welcome.
I really like this, cos it's a bit different for me. I agree the closed eyes give a sense of intimacy, a feeling of trust.
I don't think the skin is blown, that is your moniter Smile
I see what you mean about the veining, hey no one is perfect. It's the flaws that we love. Keep it real. This is what I'm saying today, another day, I might clone it out Smile
