I am breaking the tradition here an dhave to say tyhe lighting is my least favorite aspect of this image. It is without a doubt a very stunning image, but the dark shadow right next to the hot center strip distrtacts me from the rest of her face. I have to restate, this is a stunning image and my comment is only a very minor aspect.
