Jaysus! You really smoked my ass in this challenge. "Congratulations" :(

Hehe, just kidding of course, I haven´t been as thrilled about a 7+ score on DPC in the family since 2005 and woke up real early to check out the result in this challenge :)

Captivating!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/11/2007 08:15:32 PM
More than just a sultry sexy portrait, the look in your eyes and expression on the mouth shows a hint of the person behind the mask. One of my 10s in the challenge. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/11/2007 08:07:18 PM
Absolutely stunning! My favorite self portrait of all-time (the model has a little to do with that too!)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/11/2007 07:30:09 AM
Great pose and B & W conversion. Only thing I'd change is compose the shot so that you are less centered. Puckzzz?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/11/2007 07:01:56 AM
Wonderful lighting, I really like this pose.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 07:27:38 PM

Awesome B/W portrait, very seductive
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 11:19:55 AM
i love the 'attitude' in this. The highlights on the left side of hairs are a bit blown though
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 08:20:01 AM
Excellent image, love the hair hiding one eye. I would have lioked it better less centered - a tad more room on left to make more room for that wonderful hair!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 06:29:29 AM
8 - Nice confidence capture. Despite the seemingly 'off balanced' nature to this, I still think it works. The hair perhaps 'softer' looking - but that's a personal thing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2007 05:22:55 AM
Overall picture is great. I like the lighting and the use of black and white. If I were scoring the images on beauty, you would be on top. I think there are a few other pictures however that show some great creativity in their choice of surroundings.

Take this as a complement… You look to young to know who Blondie is.

Good luck in the scoring.

Really cool.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2007 03:06:24 AM
Nice photo to look at. Nice face as well. But, the pose, slightly open mouth and juicy lips and the idea of a naked body make this an inviting image, a quite erotic one. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2007 01:50:20 AM
This is a one O portrait. Well done 10.

Nicely captured, but some of the highlights are a bit blown out in the hair.

There are some very good looking woman on this site (damn them! ;-) This is a most beautiful SP and I hope you make top 3.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 01:42:05 PM
I don't know a thing about portrait photography so forgive me for sounding inarticulate, but I love the surreal, almost comic-book type effect you've achieved here with the high-key lighting on your head and how it stands in stark contrast with the dark background. It reminds me of something from Sin City, if you've ever seen it... Anyway, good luck, I'm sure this will score just fine
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 01:21:30 PM
This is beautiful! I love the lighting and the pose! Great GREAT job, Blondie :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 12:28:08 PM
Very beautiful and seductive look for you portrait. I really like your lighting and the use of negative space. Your composition is also really good. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 11:50:36 AM
This is just not fair! You are way to pretty to give any hint of a low score to, no matter what you did with your lighting and focus. However, you did an excellent job with highlighting your hair and the slightly sultry expression makes me look twice.........ok, maybe 3 times.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 11:09:33 AM
Fun and playful. Great lighting and expression. Tonal range is terrific too. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 07:42:21 AM
Well, your title is apt -- Debbie Harry is the first thing I thought of seeing this. Well executed.
