I thought everything about this worked very well together - the location, the way she's posed in that space, her outfit - it all matches up to her attitude. Your commenter average was significantly higher than your overall average - that's usually a pretty good sign that you really struck a chord with a group of people - and that's awesome!

This reminds me of those long ago handbills for punk shows. Both in content (youth don't five a f*ck about you) and the high contrast in your face editing (a look that started because of printing on cheap paper for mass distribution, and became a it's own aesthetic). I like it alot.
That said, if you actually care about getting a higher score on this site I have started looking at my editing here as I do for my cooking at a dinner party. Have a little something for everyone, and spice to soften and fill out flavors rather than to heighten one flavor. If you had edited this as if it was a glamour shot with a soft glow to the skin and lots of pretty detail in the bricks, I bet it would have done about 6.2. Harsh shot gets soft edit, soft shot gets harsh edit, so you can please more of the people, more of the time.
Now I need to get a shot of my daughter flipping off the camera in a challenge and see if I can do it so it offends fewer people by making the edit sweet enough to send diabetics into a coma.
Or you can just go with the old punk philosophy, if they don't like it, f#uck those people, this is our music!

I thought this shot was wonderfully funny, and the t-shirt helped match up to the title for me. The lighting was a bit flatter than those that I scored most highly in this challenge, but it was a 6 from me. But great model, very dramatic young lady. I admit I was a bit saddened to learn this wasn't just a random youngster off the street flipping off a photographer.

Like someone said another title might have increased the score, but the photo is fine -- make sure she knows we (some of us, anyway) appreciate her effort -- you may have gotten only one good shot, but it's a good shot ...

Not voting commenting only

This made me smile, but as far as the title goes, flipping ppl off is not good nor does the photo fit the title in my mind LOL

So, even though the title really don't match, I think the photo is priceless.. just a great capture anyway and I just love her little spunky attitude

Not a fan of a young girl making obscene gestures

Like the capture, not the title. So many other lyrics would have given you bonus points...

"I Told You Dirty Jokes Until You Smiled"
"If I'm Crazy Then It's True, It's All Because Of You"
"Don't Go Changing To Try And Please Me"
"She's Got A Way About Her"
"She Can Kill With A Smile, She Can Wound With Her Eyes" (or any of the first 4 lines of "She's Always A Woman")
"What's The Matter With The Clothes I'm Wearin'?"

I could go on and on. :)
