Had a few to choose from in this one which made it difficult.

[Jul. 25th, 2012 04:16:34 AM]

Oh my! What a start! Thank you!

[Jul. 25th, 2012 05:44:36 AM]

The first 2 votes were both 10's! It will drop... I know that... buuut... at 22 votes it's 8.5!!! I think I'll turn scores off before I break the update button :) There is absolutely no way I expected this start. Wow.

[Jul. 26th, 2012 12:46:45 AM]

Been in voting for a day now. 60 votes, 8.4333. I'm sure I'll break the update button... didn't I say I was going to turn that off? The highest it's been so far (disregarding the first 6 votes) is 8.5472 at 53. My husband thinks I need to sleep... bah!

[Jul. 26th, 2012 09:42:45 AM]

The decline has begun...

[Jul. 28th, 2012 02:23:00 AM]

....dropped a bit and steadied. Currently I am stunned at this. Wow wow wow wow wow.

[Jul. 29th, 2012 08:54:14 AM]

3 days to go, 98 votes so far... I've flattened my phone every day checking scores... this is nuts.

[Jul. 31st, 2012 12:33:07 AM]

1 day to go, dropped a bit over votes 110 to 116 (isn't it sad that I've noticed that?!) but the score is still uber-cool.

...but you know what's even cooler? The comments! Apart from the triptych challenge, I've never received so many comments while an image is in voting! This is way cool. Thanks everyone!

Fully expect the dreaded last day drop on this, but by crikey, this week's been a hell of a ride! :)))))))

[Jul. 31st, 2012 10:46:58 AM]

Thanks for the fav's!

...who needs sleep?! or to do those little things, like go to work or feed people... overrated I say!

[Jul. 31st, 2012 10:28:43 PM]

I swear I'm gunna break this freckin update button....
...ooo0ooo...

WooooooooooooooooooooHoooooooooooooo!!

Speechless, dumbfounded and amazed - just like I've been all week! Thanks everyone!!!!!!!!

I am an absolute sucker for umbrella shots (I have 11 different umbrellas that I have collected for photo shoots). This one is stellar! Beautiful, rich, and warm red & orange tones complement the scene. The umbrella is like the setting sun. I love how the shape of the fan mimics/complements the spoke wheel shape of the umbrella (a half circle to the full circle). The silhouette of the lady is perfectly accomplished. She is elegance itself. Congrats on capturing such a stunning image!

07/31/2012 12:57:01 AM
Beautiful, perfect in composition. Love the vibrant colors. The detail in the fan and the umbrellas really adds to this image. Good luck! 10

Lovely - wonderful use of props and light, and it never hurts to have a beautiful model.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/30/2012 05:20:43 PM
I really enjoy this. The different lines and geometric shapes are wonderful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/30/2012 04:31:19 PM
This is an excellent concept and I like that both the model and the umbrella give clean silhouettes. I like the use of both the umbrella and the vignette to frame the model's head. As a minor criticism, having the model's left hand (holding the large umbrella) held close to her body spoils the shape of her silhouette a little bit.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/30/2012 02:12:30 PM
Love the colors and partial transparency of the objects the subject is holding
  Photographer found comment helpful.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/29/2012 10:46:31 AM
Very creative, perfect light and just the right parasol to set off the image. Beautiful silhouette created and composition, angle, and negative space couldn't be better. Incredible photograph.

So beautiful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2012 12:06:27 PM
Top 3, perfect in so many ways, only to get beat by great story telling, I think this will sell a lot of prints.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2012 11:15:06 AM
In my top 10. I would have given this a 10 if the fan wasn't in the image. THe arm going up and the shape and texture of the fan take my eye in a little circle in the middle of the frame when I want to look a the whole image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2012 01:52:57 AM
Excellent !!!! Love it. 10 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/26/2012 01:24:05 AM
This is beautiful capture! One of my favs for the ribbon!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/25/2012 09:48:32 PM
Something Librodo might do if he did silhouettes. Except for the odd pairing of an Asian umbrella with a Spanish fan... this is terrific. Front page in my book.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/25/2012 08:18:37 PM

07/25/2012 08:05:14 PM
Excellent! I'm bookmarking with a 10 for now.. don't worry I'm sure it will hold up after I'm done browsing.
