This is one of the best photographs that I have seen today, and I would like to thank the photographer for making my day. Firstly, this photograph would capture the attention of all people who come across this. Photographs depicting a human portrait, with emphasis on the features of the face, are common, not unseen before. However, this photograph can create a strong impact on everyone and it's one of the winning points. The choice of subject is also fascinating and excellent. The eyes of the subject is bright, a sharp contrast when compared with the girl's black ebony hair, and the full rosy lips are also a contrast with the blue eyes, the black hair and the fair skin. Lastly, the freckles speckled on her cheeks are also an important element and adds to the emotions that this photograph can bring out of its viewers. I really appreciate the details and focus of this photograph and it is really good.

Very very beautiful, the girl's eyes come out at me more than anything. She's beautiful, and you photographed her in a way that made her true young beauty shine through a photograph. I love the contrasting colors where skin is contrasting with freckles, her pink lips on her very light skin, (as said by =jasmine111196)

I think you give the picture a different feel by being VERY close up to her face, a more, how do you say, personal feel, like you could be staring at her yourself.

The only bad thing is that I've seen a few pictures a like, but nothing to worry about, she's still wonderful, and you have a great eye!

Keep up the nice hard work! :D

May I use this photo in my study of the human face?
Her eyes are wonderfully captured in this photo, and I would adore drawing them.
You would, of course, be credited.
