Hello Christopher,

What a superb portrait. Moreover, you have inadvertently placed one eye of the subject (here her left) very close to the vertical centerline. It was discovered by Dr. Christopher Tyler, an English born psychologist practicing in San Francisco that in all great portraits of the centuries, the centerline passes right through one eye of the subject. This is true in Leonardo's and Rembrandt's immortal portraits, even the more abstract portraits created by van Gogh and Picasso. (I wrote a book where I explained this in part.) In any event, this is a fabulous photograph that works especially well in black and white. Like good art, it is open-ended. Different viewers will have different interpretations of the subject's gaze.

Warm regards,
