The idea was to take a picture from the stone age of a wild woman.
I spent 2-3 hours preparing her clothers.
The top and the jeans where both ripped and dipped into coffee.
After all the work on the costum I select a picture where it almost not visiable.
Total time spent on this picture is about 6-8 hours with preparing, geting to the location, shoting and post processing.

THis was a great shot- very "clan of the cave bear" people really can't vote let alone think outside of the box. The differnce between me and you is that you should enter things that are alittle closer be cause you have the skill and could win these challenges. Iv'e made adpc career out of entering goofball shots destined to score 3.something.
Anyway- nice work.

I feel that many of the voters are bit/alot narrow minded.
For example, you can find wild horses and domesticated horses.

Details: For the purpose of this challenge, "wildlife" should be considered non-domesticated mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians living in a natural environment. Now that you know what to photograph, take your best shot!

Humans are mammals, human kids have been found in the wild raised by nature and are by definition a wild mammal.
There is a movie by 'François Truffaut' that GeneralIE reminded me of that I saw long time about excalcy this.

...and before I get some comments about the environment it says
'living in a natural environment' not 'in it's natural environment' so any zoo or palce having a natural looking environment and not a fence or bars is good enough to pas for the challenge.

The challenge was very specific about what was considered wildlife. This wasn't one of the choices.

and what did you do with her once you got her back in her cage?

Great photo. Not sure about how well it meets the challenge though.

most creative shot in this challenge. you will probably be marked down for 'not meeting the theme' but i think you've creatively met it.

She's beautiful, but I suspect she's a lot more domesticated than she might look here :)

Extra points for originality.

I'm trying to come up with the name of this species ... non-domesticated mammel who's natural environment is under a bridge ... I'm sure it has to have a name because the species would be on the endangered list.

All kidding aside, very nice photo. Eyes are arresting. Composition's fine. Technical details are very good. Creative capture. And I'll bet your model cleans up well. Very pretty under the grime. Nice job even if the tie in to the challenge is a little thin.

Nice pic...and a nice try...but this just doesnt fit the challenge in my eye.
10/04/2004 09:38:54 AM
Unique take on the challenge. This shot reminds me of a 50s B movie. Well done.

Not bad, she sure looks wild. The sepia toning is fitting, I think you have dodged the eye area a little too much though.

I absolutely love this! Great choice of sepia, great lighting, great pose. Lovely model, and well done with the make up, and the look on her face. Hope this does well for you, but it may get knocked by many for being off topic, though I very much get what you are aiming for myself here. Fantastic shot.
