Whoa! Great SP.
I love all that darkness on the left, because it accentuates your glance. Well done.

I love the tiny glint of light reflecting in your eye. There is an element of fear here, be careful!

Yes the negative space....by not knowing where you end and where it begins, the eye becomes our anchor. Exceptional. K

The negative space makes that (wonderful)picture.

What Phill said. Volumes of possibilities are spoken by the one eye.

One eye and so only half the soul...Always a secret left untold... By Kal :-) Yes a great sense of mystery. And you seemed to be looking hard at us and reading our innermost thoughts. The light and negative space are brilliant too. Intense.

Beautiful! A very moving shot! I love the light through the shadows! V

You continue to make tantalizing abstractions rich in human values, Jenene. Using yourself as a model, you can probe your subject at will, without fear of antagonizing her. You simultaneously abstract this image on four levels -- you move in to achieve great intimacy, you boldly crop the subject in the frame to stress the staring eye, you build the image around the interplay of light and shadow to withhold more than you reveal, and you somehow add a soft texture to the image that adds to its veneer of mystery by making yourself appear to be timeless. And through it all, the eye continues to hypnotically hold me in its stare. The longer I look, the more it seems to bore into me.
