great movement in her hair.. I'd rather have seen her eyes..

Takes the award for best looking model by a country mile. Great 'wind in the hair' look, lovely dimple, focus is spot on with the background nicely blurred out. Only complaint is that the background is still a little too busy & distracting. I find myself wondering what that white line running up from the left side is.
Excellent work, well done.

The depth of field works great. So does the framing. I like the expression you captured as well. 7

Great use of DOF, lighting and focus are great. Would have been perfect with some eyes in it! Still very nice, though. Good luck!

Excellent portrait. Beautiful capture of a beautiful lady. I think you'll be in the top 3 with this effort. 10

Just a little more shadow detail in the hair would be nice, but is not a critical point to me.

Beautiful job! I love the use of shadows and light. Perfect DOF for this shot.

Beautiful shot and a beautiful girl. Good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A beautiful subject, but I\'m dying to see her eyes. I\'d love to see more of her hair on the right side too. The lighting, highlights, midtones, everything very well done. (Wanting to see more, often times can make a better picture by leaving something to the imagination) - this is one of my 10\'s this week - Gotcha

This picture is very nice! It must be the winner.
01/02/2003 09:38:32 AM
Sofia, has a million dollar dimple and smile. I'll bet this is a posed shot, so why is there a hair crossing her forehead? The closed eyes add wonderfully to your composition, good job. Great use of DOF.

This is a breathtaking photo, zwhere as i can find clearly defined raits of the face I can also experience a very nice feeling in the background of the picture.
01/01/2003 09:15:45 PM
Good contrast. Good use of DOF. And a beautiful model :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/01/2003 12:06:13 PM
very beautiful subject, and very amazing detail, how about just a little peak at her eyes? good job

Nice composition and lighting. This looks like a natural candid shot - I sure wish she was looking at the camera.

Beautiful outdoor portrait, great use of DOF, good luck in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a beautiful portrait. I like the DOF, and the soft light on the face. The focus is great the contrast also great. The only little thing I would like to see is the rest of her hair on the right.
Would also like to see the same shot with her looking at the camera.
