[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a re-post of my original picture which was in color. I decided to experiment a bit and changed its tonality. Maybe that doesn't change how people view it, but I like its new mood. Picture was taken on a beach in Barbados and the top of the girl's forehead still shows some sand. I purposely chose this tight cropping. My favorite part in this picture is the girl's eyes.
Let me know what you think!

Yes, eyes are always the best part of a good portrait, and they always should be sharp as here. I like this tight crop, emphasised by her hair that falls vertically, that is a great detail. And sand is a lovely add on :)
Good work, TFS!

yes its the eyes..
tried my molten fire technique in w/s..only for b/w or dark eyes

Nice portrait, Megan, very expressive eyes and mouth here. Good idea with b/w.
TFS and best wishes,

I love the way you were able to capture such fine detail, the sand that's on the girls face, the way her eyes squint, the clarity of her dreads!

super shot megan!
ps. back with points tomorrow
