Compostition/Content Great composition. I really like the way you arranged the manequins stacked up in the corner. Great use of props: hats, pillow and material. Really meets the challenge well.
Lighting Absolutely fantastic lighting. I would like to know how you set up the lighting. The shadows on all of the figures really define the shapes yet none of the shadows are too dark. I also like the light areas behind the hat on the left and behind the two heads on the right. The lighting made this shot.
Camera Work/Technical Good exposure and focus. Nice camera angle.
Post Processing It's difficult to tell what caused the grain in the image. I like the way the grain and the sepia give the image an old look. It is a strange looking grain when I zoom in on the image. I don't know what caused it. I tried highest compression and lowest quality and still couldn't get the grain in my image to look like yours, so I don't think it was the compression.
My Opinion I wouldn't want to see the image without any grain because it adds to the look of the image, but I would like to see what it would look like with maybe half the grain that it has now. Really great setup and execution. I ran your image through NeatImage and is really cleaned up the grain, you might try it.

All those naked models!!! Very good job of hiding "Waldo" and let him be seen too. Good lighting and tone. One of my favorites this week.

Nicely hidden!

Interesting composition. The use of black and white really works well for this picture.
02/15/2003 11:25:59 AM
Nice idea. The sepia tone helps hiding her. Seems a bit overcompressed.
02/14/2003 02:21:20 PM
good job. good idea
02/14/2003 02:07:01 AM
Very , very nice. She almost looks manequin--like. 10

Well done. Nice sepia tone, well focused, good composition. Just a really nice photo.

pixely and hence not looking to sharop .. shame good photo
02/13/2003 01:04:20 AM
very nice concept, but it seems compression has ruined the photo leaving artifacts and even blurring it some.
02/12/2003 08:15:36 PM
nice shot
02/12/2003 04:32:57 PM
I realize that a color shot would have made the subject easier to spot, but the colors here look almost yellow rather than true B/W.

Very good! What would have been really cool is expose her more, but use real white makeup to disguise her more like the manicans. 8.

Nice concept and composition. The exposure gives an "old" feeling. Was that what you were going for?

The woman behind the maniquins. A little grainy in places. 7 Swash

Picture is a bit over-compressed (or is it your camera?) but you've done a great job with this one.
02/11/2003 02:46:38 PM
I like the texture of this photo. It has good definition.
02/11/2003 02:12:01 PM
I really like the abstract idea for this photo. Teh color and set up was very nicely chosen as well. Great job with this photo!

This is the one I wanted to do but none of the shops around here had any manequins!! I am also surprised that you are the only person who did this. And you did it well too, you met the challlenge for sure. I see some artifacts here, coming from saving for the web at a too low a setting. Oh yes and I spotted Waldo in your photo :-)

Nice work - black and white is essential in hiding the person here I believe. Focus and composition are good, although the image does feel slightly lop-sided - too much on the right but not enough to appear deliberate.
02/10/2003 10:47:35 PM
Beautiful body parts! Very creative touch.
02/10/2003 05:48:51 PM
Good idea and I like the graininess here.
02/10/2003 03:42:34 PM
very nice i really like the color
02/10/2003 02:47:17 PM
Good job, i really like the colaboration of the staues and dummies. the brown really gives it a stone texture!
02/10/2003 12:32:28 PM
I think you really captured the essence of the challenge with this photo!
02/10/2003 09:49:44 AM
yes, i can! that's pretty good! i like sepia tone of the picture, too, but it is a little "noisy" and "pixellated"...
02/10/2003 08:01:09 AM
I like the idea, but a clearer picture would have been better. I think this may be over sharpened or possible it is just grainy.
02/10/2003 03:05:22 AM
I thought of doing something like this! But I never had a chance! Great job!
02/10/2003 12:31:50 AM
This is great. Very creative. I like the sepia tones. Good luck.
