Excelent portrait 7/7 !
Carlos Miguez Macho
Impressive face. Very elegant.
The reflection of the ringlight is fun... although I'm not sure your portrait and your model need it! Congratulation anyway

7/7 Bravo !

Beautifull and intruiging portret! Like the use of the ringlight. Maybe a different composition (more to the right) would have made it even more mysterious. Btw you have a great site with superb work on it. Thanks for sharing!
Nice...and weird eyes.....6/7
7.7 Fantastic JOB EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!
Hard to inovate You just did it. Intense, deep and quite unique portrait. Cheers, Marilia
fantastic powerful portrait.....regards david
Great photograph and what an intense look.
Very stark & intense
I think the eyes are just a little too manipulated. Too obvious. Otherwise, great pose and detail.

Stuning portrait! Carlo
:o) I love it.
YANNETO 7/7 TREMENDOUS AND FANTASTIC IMAGE, VERY EMOTIONAL AND STYLISH OUTLOOK. REGARDS FOR IT !!!
wow.. one of the most powerful portraits i have seen on this site..
This skin as a stone. These incredible eyes. Vrry good work
7/7 Excellent, congrats!
This is awesome. This woman needs to send this shot into one of the top modeling agencies... she has the face of a million bucks. Wonderful job shooting her.
A7 - O7 Probably the best portrait I've seen on PN. The lady featured is model material. Fantastic.
In my view this is one of the best in your very impressive portfolio. There is a very strong presence in this portrait and a clear sign of interesting personalities in front and behind the camera. Perfect !
I think I prefer this image to http://www.photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=3459536
Marco, please try to explain why you prefer the other photo you give link to. For me this portrait communicates personality - the other is only a postulation.
Wow! Very strong; love it!
Mesmerising Oh wow, I love it, it's mesmerising.
Emerging forth into the light, those rings reflected in her eyes, her entire look.
I can't help but look right back.

Absolutely beautiful! She must be so pleased.
forceful but... Obviously forceful, excellent balance of composition, terrific grain, tonality, contrast, sharpness and tint, but, alas, those ring flash reflections off the pupils mar the photo irreversibly for me...from a potentially deeply moody persona I come down to earth with a thud by discovering that she is behind a flash against a propped up curtain...alas! [I stopped giving points because people are abusing the point system here; so please pardon me]
Uuuu Splendid all the way. I love it.
hi Simply amazing! Care to share your technique?
I like the catch-lights.
The freckles are very cute, and I don't mind the work on the eyes at all. What i find unsatisfying here is the artificial shadow cast on her jowls which makes her face come to a too-sharp point at the chin. The ears lead down to her chin, and though her forehead and upper cheeks are highlighted, I find my eyes being led all over the place. The heavy black background which envelopes her feels like a barrier or distance which the ring light ought to have eliminated. If I can see such details in her eyes, why do I feel so far away from her? I like your photo of Radu much better because I feel like he's tangible and immediate. Eileen seems disembodied and distant. The gray texture which works so well in the Radu photo just makes Eileen cold and "stone-like".
Wow...this image is amazing! The "texture" on her face...lighting...eyes and lips are sooo sharp! Beautiful
lovely, great work in b&w
Kim rasmussen Love freckles .....strong picture ........nice work Hi Kim
bravo Found it again. This was the photo that kinda inspired me to start taking pictures a couple years ago. It's one of very few that I can sit and look at for minutes on end and not get bored. It just kinda draws me in. Constantly engaging and revealing new minute details with each glance. Job well done.
EXCELLENT !!! Fantastic technique. Im a big fan of Andrzej Dragan and you seem to have mastered his technique perfectly.
