    Fantastic lighting on the face. Normally a highlight like that would distract but I think it works here. The eyes are intense.

    I really like this shot. Aside from the good use of lighting Im drawn to the eyes and expect them to flare up any moment with some kind of reflective impression.

    Love the eyes. Larger view is well worth the click (I'm on 1600x1200 though)

    Thanks, we were surrounded by tall glass buildings which were reflecting a lot of light around, so there was hardly any shadow that wasn't mellowed. Great conditions for this kind of shot.

    great light again, you have great vision to spot these moments, or a great talent to create them either in photoshop or otherwise.

    Its all about the eyes and the shadows
