    Gee……. I wish I had a chance to learn taking this kind of picture.
    Great photo, buddy. Very artistic.
    If I may, I say the bubbles on the left corner a bit distracting.

    You got my 5! and model gets 10..Wonderful idea, love seeing her eyes open, perfect touch. Top model for sure. Love the black and white touch. I REALLY LOVE THE REFRESHING “NO MACRO” to look at. Very creative. If it were me I would blow this one up to at least 1 meter wide, it would look real cool in my living room.

    Thanks Mul, with your skill, you just need a model ;) … Thanks for the input, there’s always pro and cons regarding bubbles. Some like, some don’t. As for me, if it’s not in the model’s face, I keep them.

    Yes Yuji, I wasn’t expecting her to showed up there…..:D
