Wonderful appealing eyes and a quizical expression. The out of focus blurring treatment, adds to the impact.

Haunting is perhaps to too strong a word, very memorizing, like the colour match as well, top shot

Hi Maria,
very nice portrait and especially PP! Photo still has "reserves"! Few would "play" with the shadow of your neck. View distracts from the "center" of the composition!

A very engaging portrait that makes the most of those big eyes. Inimitable.

She's just floating in there.

So delicate, and very appealing.

Great technique.
