Hi I hope you are fine (I apologize in advance for my bad English.)

Your picture is really beautiful, perfectly lit and with an incredible model and framing very well controlled. You have beautiful eyes and big which gives a lot of beauty to your eyes and Photograhy. I just wonder one thing, the blur has it been redone in post production?

The picture is extremely simple but gives off something very soothing, reassuring and sensuous. It is very effective while remaining easy!

Congratulations on your great and wonderful work, I will continue to follow your gallery, good work! :)

I know how hard it is to make a self-portrait. Tried it a lot of times myself. ^^

The all-over color look of the photo fits to the color of your eyes and gives the smooth look. The editing is just great and the calm background highlights your face.

The depth-of-field at f3.5 emphasizes (right word?) your straight face shape.

But I think that the focus is not exactly at the eyes more one the nosebridge.

This is a stunning photo pf a beautiful woman... that's my opinion. ;)

(Sorry, if some words are not that understandable, but English isn't my native language ^^)

Hi, I realise that you've had many people use your photos as references (Which I can't blame them for really, they're stunning) but I just wanted to add my name to the list too, and let you know that I used this absolutely gorgeous photograph as a reference for a watercolour painting recently. [link] I hope you don't mind and might even like it. Thanks for sharing your work. :love:

Awesome self portait! It has a very refreshing feel to it.

I also used this image as a reference for a drawing, however I didn't realise it was a self portait before I began. The drawing is a little abstract so please don't take it personally in any way. Hopefully you like it. :) You can check it out at [link] if you like.
Thanks heaps! :D

Can I use it for Photoshop editing? I am learning it for a while now, but it's really tough to find that kind of a perfect shot. I would really appreciate it ;)

This is an amazing image --- gazing at it in a darkened room, it's nearly 3-D. It moves, almost imperceptibly, forwards and backwards...

Still does it. Maybe its focus matches one of my eyes's natural focal points?? Fun anyway.
