    Wow. What an impact.

    I don't often comment, as you know Fernando. But sometimes I am driven to make a comment on one of your images.

    I really like the way she's facing the camera straight on but looking slightly up, it's very striking.

    I like it. The contrast and shine on the face add interest and drama.

    Well, no-one else has mentioned it so I will. "Giokonda" is the Portuguese(?) version of "La Gioconda" which is the name of the Mona Lisa. The smile says it all!

    I love the effect of the post processing... It gives the look of a bronze statue; except for the eyes which show her as very warm and human...
