This is a candid shot of a lady that captured my eye on the riverwalk because she reminded me so much of my mom who I lost a little over 2 years ago. I don't know how much photographic merit the dpc voters will think this photo has, but I just love it for emotional reasons.

I think its a lovely portrait full of thought and honor to her.
So sorry about your mother, I'm sure you miss her. The lighting and detail in this portrait are lovely.

Sandy, this is beautiful. You really captured her. You are so good at candid photography that doesn't look candid.

Edit to add: AND you advanced in the MS Tourney. WOO HOO!

It's a wonderful portrait (that one you know already) of the very beautiful lady. I gave it a 10 and I think you were totally robbed this time. Better luck next time.

Color/exposure/contrast: 1.5/2 Grat palette, good contrast, little bit desturated @ medium luminance. The title would go for a mor optimistic color saturation
Focus/sharpness: 2/2 Perfect
Idea/creativity: 2/2 Not hard to obtain but creative though
Theme: 2/2 Fits
Framing/appeal: 1/2 Good framing but I am not appealed :S
TOTAL:8.5

A great shot, very nice lighting and skin tones. I love the play on the clichè given the facial expression and the dark background. Well done on a great capture and good luck with the next challenge!
