well, this is almost as i imagined it would turn out. except for maybe not thinking about using a white cigarette on a white background, that was pretty brilliant. :) and the background itself isnt as bright as i would like either, but oh well, we had fun. :)

Brilliant indeed! I gave you a 10 and figured this would place first. Great work. Perfect composition. Excellent light and details. The hair and the shades are perfect. Damn! She looks a lot like Julia Roberts! I hope she takes that as a compliment and not a DIS. (: Selected as Favorite!
Cheers....Martin

Congrats on your top ten! Excellent entry...Wow!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/19/2005 04:00:36 PM
thanks for all the kind words peeps! i went for emotion over technical with this one--i had a few that had better backgrounds/cigarettes--but i liked her pose, etc in this one. so i'm happy with the placement! :)

@pedro--just the usual frustratingness of people not reading the challenge. my interpretation was that it could or could not have to do with the actual movie. some people i guess thought it meant that it could not at all have anything to do with the movie. oh well.

@riot--cool, i'm a huge parker posey fan.
01/19/2005 03:49:36 PM
17 people voted this 3 or less? idiots. The Anal-ysts were clearly out in force...maybe knock it down a few points if you think it misses the challenge, but for *&%$ sake people use your damn brains for a change.

I'm ashamed for those people.

Wow. This is one good looking woman. Cheers on such a great job, and yes, you were totally robbed.

01/19/2005 01:17:05 AM
This is fantastic, I never got to it but would have gotten a 10 from me.
She looks like parker posey

One of my top 3. Excellent composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2005 11:14:58 PM
A great portrait of your model. Too bad the cig was blown out in the white background. One of two 10's I gave.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2005 11:14:07 PM
Great shot, very 60s. I think it could be a bit sharper, and I wish the cigarette didn't blend in the background, but overall, I think it's great. Bumping up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2005 09:52:06 PM
very nice picture but I don't care for the way the cigarette is lost against the background
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2005 09:51:14 PM
Excellent - 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2005 08:29:26 AM
The model is just about perfect though I think there was a certain eternal innocence in Audrey's face that is lacking here. But that facet of her never worked for me in her Holly portrayal and the slight hardness does with this model. Only nit is the cigarette seems to disappear. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2005 12:36:27 AM
Yup, I think we have a winner right here. I'm almost too stunned to comment but I had to go ahead and tell you what a lovely shot this is. I'm sure you've gotten plenty of congratulatory comments already though :) A classic, gorgeous work of art...good for you! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2005 10:15:30 PM
Fantastic, so striking. Well composed. B/W spot on !! The best so far 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2005 02:41:10 PM
My pick for a ribbon! 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2005 04:18:02 AM
Wow. Speechless. This would make Audrey herself blush at it's perfection. Pose, frame, crop, lighting,everything. perfect. If this doesn't get a ribbon Imma lose it.


i wanted to spell it speachless, just because i think i'm funny, and you'd get it ;)

01/16/2005 12:09:04 AM

A hard image to pull off. My congratulations.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2005 07:43:40 PM
Who is she? I'd like to meet her. This is an excellent portrayal. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/15/2005 06:01:32 AM
She seems Audrey but I don's think it meets the challenge, a pic related to the title not to the movie.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2005 09:26:01 PM
Composition works for me, suits the movie title, gray scale helped. Good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2005 08:53:33 PM
yup, this will be the winner.
I think...
Well done
excellent capture

I love it, where did you get a "fume cigarette" so long? Looks like a sarbacane...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2005 08:08:41 AM
An excellent photo right down to the expression of someone who wants something above it all. Nice lighting, BW balance and clarity
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/14/2005 06:10:59 AM
Great BW portrait!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2005 06:45:21 PM
one of the top shots no doubt.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2005 04:42:32 PM
The model's bangs appears to have stolen the focus from the face. Definite retro feel to this one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2005 04:32:36 PM
This looks great. Her pose and looks is so classic. She really looks like (and perhaps she really is) a famous moviestar.
The balance of light and dark combined with the toning is just great. The addition of the cigarette holder makes it mory dynamic. If I imagine the portrait without it, it somehow looses its power.
The things that draw me as first is the hair and the glasses. Especially the tone gradation in the glasses makes it a bit "who's that girl?" (to be sure: not Madonna related at all!).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2005 01:54:33 PM
it's mildly off-topic as it should be illustration to the title, not to the movie, but great job in mimicking Audrey!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/13/2005 01:14:31 PM

Really uncanny resemblance. Love the way you put in all the details, including the hair clip. Well shot and composed. It's perfect. 10

score 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/12/2005 10:43:41 AM
Yay! What a great job on the Audrey lookalike :)

The shot is a little out of focus in some places (her big hair) and a little blownout in upperleft, but forgetting all that - I love it! 10!
