Excellent Sepia tone and usage of repetitive complexity to create unifying simplicity (i.e. the wheat and hair strands.) Obvious quality! :) Congratulations! :)

great composition, I really like the contrastion hair colours, and the tone is very ballanced. makes me wonder "what are their hands doing?" Awesome pic!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/24/2008 05:47:13 PM
Yes! I wouldn't want to change a thing. The colour scheme is stunning. My choice for blue.

love the tones and the poses. the girls' hair looks as silky as the wheat in the fields. one of my top picks.

Does wheat grow in Iceland. ;-Þ
This has a certain mystique, nicely done.

Almost too far away for what I think of as 'Portrait'. But, it's certainly one of the better photos of the challenge - the light sepia work well with the grass and attractive faces never hurt anybody. I think your photo will certainly end up in the top 10. It was only 1 of 5 tens I gave out this challenge.

Excellent composition. Certainly ribbon worthy. Good luck

10 all the way....could be an advertisement for fashion......even tho you cant see any clothing.... Great jobs!!! 10

I love the setting and the quality of the image -- the composition, light, and the softness of the grass and sepia tone. I don't like the hostile expression on the blond's face. I think it detracts from the serenity and the tie between the girls. Perhaps it is directed at the intrusion of the photographer or viewer, but I would like to observe this relationship unnoticed. 8

06/20/2008 06:50:59 AM
Best of the best i think.
Would love to see this really emotive pic take the blue.
A wonderful image.
A big fat 10 from me.

Good luck

This shot is great. I would like to see what it would look like with a high speed synch or a gold reflector(in color that is)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/19/2008 09:15:56 AM
One of the better ones this challenge - upped to a 9

I wonder what they are up to ..? great portrait 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/19/2008 01:28:06 AM
Great shot. I think a little contrast bump would do this wonders, but thats just my personal preference. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/18/2008 11:08:26 PM
Very nicely composed and the processing is just perfect for the image. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/18/2008 08:56:34 PM
The duotone finish was the perfect choice for this image as was the wide DOF. The straight lines of the the models' hair, so uniform, stand in wonderful contrast to the chaos in the tines of the wheat. The angry look of the blond takes away slightly from the otherwise emotionless, or, at least contented feeling of the image. The starkness of the sky and the intrusion of the tops of their heads into that spaces adds a very interesting element to the overall image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/18/2008 05:27:12 PM
Not sure I like the place where the horizon crosses their head/
All the rest is good, above all the contrast blonde/brown, the foreground and the tones

Wonderful sepia tones. Top notch
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very nice comp., love the color tones and subject placement... 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/18/2008 09:42:00 AM
they don't look like happy friends.. as for the photo, the sepia tone works, the high key look works.. the dark hair draws the viewer's eye there. Would've scored higher if not for the dour expressions
  Photographer found comment helpful.
