I absolutely loooove this shot and have naturally added to the favs. If I wanted to be really picky my only change would be to lower the finger a tad to see its tip. Beautiful, congrats on the Blue Ribbon!!!

So you needed 6 months to create this shot? Definitely it was worth the time, congrats on an absolutely deserved blue in a strong competition.
Great colors, skin tones and a feel of depth.

This is a most stunning portrait. The skin, the eyes, the color, everything's perfect.
I've been trying to work out why the hand's bothering me... The finger pointing upwards seems not to belong to the rest of the hand, as if it's pointing the wrong way... (Please excuse my garbling on, maybe Zargonians have hands that makes us earthlings wonder... ;-)) Huge congrats on your well deserved win.

What a beautiful girl. I love the splashes of color. Not sure about the border but that is a small complaint on such a brilliant shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

without the hand this photo would have been great
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great image. Is she picking her nose, I guess I would have had some spacing between the tip of her finger and her nose.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/15/2010 06:19:19 AM
Lovely and sharp. The lighting on the face seems slightly unnatural, like you've brightened it up in post processing. I would have liked to see more shadow.
