I am curious to see how this does. I like how it fits the challenge -- I think the triangle component is strong if you are looking for it but not overpowering if you hare not. I think the light on the subject is pretty nice (a white bed sheet hung in front of the window). The background is questionable to me. Sometimes I think it is distracting and other times I like the alternating light and dark vertical tones to set off the light and dark tones in the subject. The strength of portrait is also in question to me. I like it probably because it is my daughter, and I also worry that I failed to capture a lot of personality.

I like that a subtle triangle finished on the plus side of 6. The lighting is perfect. Your daughter is beautiful!

For me the triangle is not prominent enough. Lovely light though

Lovely model and the pose works perfectly - for the portrait and for the challenge. Love the texture in her sweater and the subtle interest of the background. Top ten for me. Voted earlier.

Nicely portrait and well posed to make a triangle.

A good idea, and technicals are very good, but in the end, the pose looks forced and uncomfortable.

I love the subtlety og this perfect triangle. What a lovely portrait and wonderful light, although I would have cropped out everything to the right of her elbow.

Interesting, I wouldn't have ever thought to do an image like this for the challenge, but it works out well.
