A very powerful composition. Looks like Mars inhabitant
The skin color and the sight is shocking!
I can't keep looking at the photo for more than 10 seconds. I feel discomfortable. Then, after a while I turn to it one more time :)

A very powerful portrait with big and beautiful eyes. I like but the perspective makes that the face seems a little deformed, like a alien. Well done Manny.

hi Manuel, i really like the composition, this tight cropping and your POV - looking at her from the top.
wonderful eyes too, excellent portrait, very original.

Very interesting image, Manuel. I can't say that she looks lovely like in your other shots (which seem to heighten and dignify the people you photograph), but this certainly creates an eye-catching, engaging, lively image!

Manuel, as usual you have presented another superb image. The angle of the shot is very dramatic, the focus, detail and pp make this a beautiful picture.
Well done, great work.

I ***Really*** like this image as a thumbnail. It was somehow diminished when I opened it up and saw it in it's glory.
I think it's because I'm so used to seeing the airbrushed beauty which is in every magazine. To see her in her imperfect glory is certainly mind twisting to say the least.
So I say - bravo. It's a great picture when it can make you stop and think about the cultural references and the conditioning to which you are accustomed.
Great photo. Great processing. Great job.
