I would like to like it but I don't. The metallic/plastic look and the slightly glassy eyes make me uncomfortable. Well done on winning though :)

This one is just amazing. I love the processing. The eyes, lips and the thing she has on her head look just stunning! 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/19/2013 09:22:27 PM
The light is stupendous, especially for her skin tones. This is a winner.

I love everything about this image --- except maybe the "painterly" processing. I'm on the fence about whether it adds or detracts from it. Will come back later to vote after I've thought on it some more.

A look of surprised concern... Such aggressive pp'g. Not sure about it

Very nicely presented. Superb lighting. 9

Looks like the work of Leo, I'm assuming you're doing well with this one, it is expertly done, love the bronze tones. One nitpick though, wish the light too the right side of her face was not so dark but that was probably your intention, who am I to say anyway, I'm no expert ;)

Nice painterly look! Very pretty.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/13/2013 09:26:51 PM
Voted earlier coming back to comment.

This is absolutely TOP NOTCH! The lighting and the capture of expression there is something that is both captivating and akin to a painting...I think of the expression and light from Vermeer's Girl with Pearl Earring. Excellent work - 10.

Love the little smirky bout. Nice use of light.

03/13/2013 01:48:09 PM
