I just came across this. I gave it an 8 during voting but it probably should have been more. It's not all that often that I think an image that scored over 6 was hardly done by. This is one of those times.

This photo is really nice. The background is distracting.

You've played around with the light and color in a great way... the red floor and darken upper right work great as compositional elements against the main subject. One of my ribbon picks this challenge

Interesting subject and good use of color contrast.

I like this surrealistic mood. The light seems a bit harsh to me.
There are some backgroud objects at right that disturb the eye.
Good shot though

Wonderful - love those dirty reds and brown tones. A minor point, but might not the figure have had a greater relation to her environment? It would add to the surresl nature of the shot if there were some sense of interaction rather than simply location? Like I said, a minor point. This is wonderful stuff though, I shall come back to it.

I really like the surreal quality of the composition.

Returning for comments:
Certainly one of the most fascinating entries in this challenge. Superb composition with intriguing subject matter and foreground colors that contrast well with the pale background. Bumping up.

Unusual but very eye catching photo. It may not go down to well with a lot of people here though. However there are some of us who appreciate people trying to produce a photograph such as this. I like the colour, the main subject and the way you have positioned it. I wish you luck

I reallly like the colors and composition. The only thing that bothers me is the purple cast on the rack (?) directly to the right of the manequin's head.

Clever --- nice shot. 10.

This could very well ribbon IMO. Ingenius find or set-up, outstanding processing, perfect composition, extremely creative in approach in all ways.

Good title.
I like the idea and how the lower part of the photo looks (it looks like a 10 score). But than the background above the neck spoils it. The ugly wall and roof, the unrelated matter and especially the blown out (exposure-wise) windows draw so much attention a way. Just where you'd like to focus all of your attention on the cut off face. Averages out to a 7.

I'd like more of the background the way the floor looks. The highlights on the body are no problem for me.

Composition: 5, Technical: 7, Appeal: 6, Challenge: 3, Overall Score: 4 (weighted)

This is a very "clean" shot and the title is quirky but fitting. The floor's texture augments the feel you are portraying in the old bust form. The angle works well and the light from the windows gives it a bit of an "edge". Excellent capture.....good luck!

Really like the color and texture here. Only slight annoyance is the overexposed windows, and chromatic fringing.

Great title. This photo works well and shows creative thinking outside the box.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/13/2004 05:58:12 AM
I really like the subject, composition and the deep rich colors in this shot. You might want to do something about the purple fringing in the background, but other than that, this is an excellent shot for this challenge.

Excellent, I love the mood and weirdness of the whole shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Clever title! Artistic presentation is nice with the high contrast. Technically, chromatic aberration evident in the background. Doesn't significantly detract from the beauty of this image. Overall this fits the spirit of the challenge theme.
