Congratulations on the yellow. The lady makes a stunning Daisy. I probably would have given you 10 but I felt it didn't quite illustrate the title as such, and if one were not familiar with the book might it not have made a connection. However, maybe everyone is familiar with the book and so it was still one of my 3 9s.

Might have been nice with selective desaturation and Red Riding Hood.

Great work on those eyes!

I think of Gatsby as a man but also a type and this model's look -- hat, expression, make-up -- works very well. Really like this one.

Daisy Buchanan or Jordan Baker I presume? Lighting is great and the details on the face and the eyes are wonderful. Absolutely stunning catch-lights and captivating eyes on your model - well captured. I feel like I have been caught staring and she is now staring back. B&W invokes the idea of an age long past most specifically the 1920's. While the style of the hat recalls that era the style of the hair does not - wish it was more true to the style of hair during that the 1920's as that it would add strength to the image without having to rely on the title to tell us (the saying 'show, don't tell' applies to what I am saying). Nonetheless, well done.

Beautiful model, lovely lighting. A slight sepia may have conveyed more of a period feel

Great shot but I'd have thought Daisy's hair would be a lot more groomed and not as unkempt.
