It is too bad that the picture is a little pixelated around the eyes (maybe the process in getting it web ready?), Because this is a fantastic photo.

Congrats. Beautiful! What more can I say? There's nothing else to add but "beautiful" and may I add: "spectacular"?
Can I ask you how old this model was at time of shooting? Thanks.
I may try something similar myself.
your picture should have been number one winner...well maybe next time.
I have been following your work in here you are very consistent. What magazine do you work for?

Gorgeous portrait and model. It is beyond beautiful--it has a very emotional quality to it as well. The 'eyes' have it. My hat is off to you, Alan!

Thanks Amanda. Daniella is 19. I wish I could say I work for a magazine but ... only in my dreams :-) I do really appreciate the praise though. - Alan

Patrick - Thank you also. - Alan

I keep coming back and I cant leave without at least taking a quick glance at Daniella again and again.
Yes the eyes have it, like you said Roberts... and there is an emotional quality to it....yup.
Robert, I have never seen you here....let's take a look at your work...
...and Alan, start submitting your photographs to the best national magazines. I feel you have that passionate thing for photography, and you never know...only in your "dreams" to quote you, yeah but remember your dreams will take you far and if you believe hard enough they will happen.
I know you believe harder than anyone knows. I can see it. I predict it will happen within the next year. And than all the people who doubted you will have to bow...
Come back and tell me...
Good luck...
