Lovely shot! The one thing I find distracting is the whites of the eyes....too white.

Thanks David for your honest feedback

Nice work Gary. I am inclined to think David's comment is valid but on the other hand such beautiful eyes and well captured.This is also one of those shots where because her leading eye is in the middle of the frame if you print this and put it on a wall, her eyes will follow you around the room.Like the mona lisa does and also I have seen a couple of portarits of Audrey Hepburn that show this beautifully.

Geoff thank you! to be honest the eyes are the important part of this image and captivating. It's all about the eyes.

I agree. Get the eyes right with any person or wildlife and you have a picture.
