I'm actually sort of speechless...
What does one say about a piece like this? What word comes first to mind? Well, many, too many came to mine...
Things like: Hypnotic, Chilling, Captivating, Mesmerizing...to name a few.

First off, the colors used are perfect; they make just the right balance of beauty and creepy.
The eyes! Those utterly captivating eyes! They dominate the piece; sucking you in, fixing your focus. I love their eerie teal coloring.
Balance is achieved by the use of the lighter, reddish orange highlight in the hair around the face, which draws the eye out, and away from those dominant eyes, so that the whole piece can be take in and appreciated.

The intensely red lips also aid to the balance against the eyes. However, they are also my one small criticism. Though they lend balance, I don't like that shade of red in the rest of the color scheme.
I would have liked a darker shade, still red, for contrast, but deeper.

Otherwise, this is another great piece; interesting, and well done!

This is such a coincidence to see this. My school had an art festival this weekend and I saw a student who had drawn this. It was truely breathtaking. Wish there was a way to show you it. Gorgeous photo though.

Quite striking eyes but I'm honestly more interested in her engulfing hair. It's fascinatingly done. Compositionally it's married with her strong chin in a manner which makes her seem to blossom from the image.

Stunning, great shot. Eyes are a bit off-kilter, but that's a very mild critique in what is an otherwise wonderful bit of artwork.

Cold and penetrating but beautiful eyes.
What has the light and darkness witnessed?
It's cold inside and fire on the outside.
Focussed to find a certain quality in people.
What is she seeking? What has she lost?
Shame on humanity cause it has come to this.
Relieve our undead. May they find peace.

That's not scary!  That's not scary at all! 

Like some kind of resurrected witch, looking to avenge her wrongful death by punishing the villagers who set her upon the stake and burned her.  Just... wow.
