I like this, the anonymity of it even though it feels like a portrait.

Under my umbrella, brella, brella ella, ella.....
03/16/2009 10:07:28 PM
i really like this! great bricks, lovely patterns
03/16/2009 09:54:17 PM
Between her dress, the brick wall, and the tile floor, you have some very interesting textures going on.
03/16/2009 04:35:25 PM
very very nice, like everything about this. The texture of the wall, her dress your lighting and the dark umbrella...very good
03/16/2009 04:01:28 PM
Interesting shot. I like the added vignette, and the pose.
03/16/2009 03:14:11 PM
The Morton Salt girl takes a break......
I might have cloned out the white spots on the wall
03/16/2009 10:18:54 AM
great light and well exposeed
03/16/2009 02:26:23 AM
Well captured and presented.
03/15/2009 09:46:19 PM
Nice lighting, and background. Conveys a shy person not wanting to get shot. Not sure why the bare feet, though.
03/15/2009 03:14:48 PM
Well lit and a good strong composition.
03/15/2009 02:27:40 PM
Very creative
03/15/2009 01:57:56 PM
Nice colors and lighting. Good shot.
03/15/2009 10:06:08 AM
I like the vignetting, nice setup.
03/15/2009 09:14:50 AM
wow, you'e got all kinds of interesting patterns going on here, the red bricks, the square floor tiles, the triangular umbrela, and the dress, also like the black color of the umbrella against the red wall, nice done
03/15/2009 05:12:10 AM
I like the idea ;) and its well taken too

thx, brano
03/15/2009 12:00:35 AM
great idea.
03/14/2009 09:19:28 PM
I like this set-up. It's intriguing.
03/14/2009 08:19:44 PM
Great composition! Nice! Wish the umbrella was another color though. Yellow? That would pop and look great against the purple dress and red wall!
03/14/2009 07:27:00 PM
Good photo, interesting idea and implemented very well.
03/14/2009 07:26:58 PM
Cute! The thumbnail doesn't do this justice!
03/14/2009 01:47:41 PM
Nice shot, interesting composition.
03/14/2009 01:06:07 PM
vignetting really adds to this image
03/14/2009 08:56:54 AM
Nicely shot, good tones and lighting.
03/14/2009 12:13:28 AM
A little too static for me. Maybe if the model twirled a multi-colored umbrella.....
03/13/2009 08:25:49 PM
nice dodging and burning- very interesting subject matter
03/13/2009 07:11:41 PM
Nice idea. I tend to like anonymous photographs.
03/13/2009 04:06:25 PM
Lovely colors and treatment.

Great shot. Slightly askew, but I still like it. :)
03/13/2009 02:04:31 PM
Interesting concept. Has a nice sense of design.
03/13/2009 04:14:26 AM
There's a couple of things I don't like about this, but it's very decent.

I wonder if you have tried a grunge/low sat look on this one. Dodge the feet back up a hair and throw a tiny bit of gaussian on her dress.

I'm going to give you a score averaged between what I see as the potential and what I actually see.

PM me if you want to compare, I'd enjoy playing with this one for fun when I have time later.
03/13/2009 01:56:11 AM
This shot is very moving, well done.
03/12/2009 10:33:34 PM
ok, must be over my head, nice light & exposure though
03/12/2009 09:17:11 PM
Nice idea, lines, patterns, blocks of color, etc. It might be a tad too dark, but ... I like it!
03/12/2009 08:45:13 AM
Quaint... nice colors and patterns.
03/12/2009 07:27:39 AM
I like the mystery,good job!
03/12/2009 06:03:15 AM
Nice composition and very dramatic
03/12/2009 04:32:51 AM
interesting picture, though the title is misleading, the miss doesn't seem to be so little. I like the muted colors, the vignette is to heavy IMO
03/12/2009 02:33:26 AM
nice mood and lighting
03/11/2009 10:37:24 PM
This is really interesting to look at, I'm really drawn into it, and I'm not even sure why.... I do really love the colors and tones... that much I do know.
03/11/2009 06:29:33 PM
nice vignetting and grungy look. I like the deep red.
03/11/2009 02:32:59 PM
Very nice to leave the viewer some guessing!
03/11/2009 01:38:10 PM
nice shot
03/11/2009 12:16:06 PM
I really like the lighting and the umbrella hiding the person adds mystery
03/11/2009 11:30:18 AM
why is she hiding? shyness, embarassment, being coy? definitely makes one wonder! I usually don't like the brick backgrounds, but it works here. it plays nicely with the tiled floor, and the tones work well together.
03/11/2009 11:00:00 AM
the corners seem burnt in a little too much
03/11/2009 09:39:15 AM
I love these kind of pictures. I think I would have liked it in sepia or black and white more but its still very nice!
03/11/2009 09:38:52 AM
Congratulations on being part of this 1000th challenge on DPC. Keep up the good work!!
03/11/2009 02:22:08 AM
Love the composition on this, and the contrast of the floor and wall shapes. Just a bit dark with the vignetting.
