Richard Killey October 13, 2004

congratulations on POTD. as a beginner to this craft, I have a question. I have read that a photographer should attempt to have a rectangular light reflection in eyes. This photo has round ones. How important is this? #838678

Alejandra Reyes October 13, 2004

Thank you to all! You are very kind.
Richard: (oh my Good!) I am a beginner too!

Very striking! Just wondering if any digital manipulation was done? It looks like there may have been some touch-up on right eye.

Leanne M.E. Boyd October 13, 2004

Congrats on your POTD!!!!!! #839357

Kip T. Berger October 13, 2004

Happy for you getting the POTD! I like the use of the non-standard size to display the eyes. The softness contrasts well with the sharpness of the eye area, making them stand out nicely. Good concept. #839439

Alejandra Reyes October 13, 2004

Thank you Cari and Leanne.
I adjusted a bit, levels and colors, and retouched the right eye to hide a little flash glare.
(I used rear curtain flash at the end of a long exposure.) #839459

Alejandra Reyes October 13, 2004

And thank you Kip! #839467

Donna La Mattino Pagakis October 13, 2004

October 13, 2004

Brilliant! It makes me want to see more mysterious eyes and experience the uniqueness in each person's personality. Perhaps a whole gallery filled with covered women (and men?)... #839822

Alejandra Reyes October 13, 2004

Thank you very much Donna and Salina!
It´s a good idea, Salina... #839831
