Photo taken under natural lighting at 1/2500s, f2.8, ev -0.33, iso 100.
only cropping done. rest of photo relatively untouched.
trying to give the feeling of a mysterious beauty, allowing you to see half the face and guess how the other half will look. in my opinion, the eyes are very nice and extremely 'soulful'. of cuz, to each his own.
looking for comments wrt to cropping, and whether the photo can be considered a good 'portrait'.
