beautiful image, thank you for taking the time to tell us how you did it - white make-up, who would have thought?

Well, obviously YOU, but I would have been wrestling in photoshop.

I admire your work.

Brilliant and wonderful shot and processing. Your model lights up the screen too. Yum.

Wooo Nasti best score yet, and another 4th place AGAIN! Close though and one day you'll get a ribbon, I haven't seen anyone else here on DPC with a 6.2 average and no ribbons....

Looks like you changed a lot of your comments after the fact :)

I used normal studio lighting with no filters, the girl was very blond and with fair skin, I used some close to white make up, white lipstick and white mascara also. Her hair was sprayed with some ice spray. The original photo was close to light itself. then I turned it into monotoe, duotone with a light tint of blue. sRGB+sharpen. I think a good thing for this photo was that I used a hair spot from the right top corner and it shines through her hair to make them look lighter.
thank you everyone for such nice comments, the girl is a real beauty, i think I will do more things with her in the future.

Very Very nice indeed.
And again, just outside the ribbon....
But congrats on your 4th place...
Not a ribbon you won, but this must be worth a pannenkoek....

I can't believe you came so close to a ribbon, and walked away empty handed yet again. Another outstanding photo from a true master.

First initial impression was the same as ursula's - reminded me of Barbra Streisand. Very nicely done shot. I could see this as an album cover.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/09/2005 12:18:41 PM
Beautiful shot, congratulations! She reminds me of Barbra Streisand somehow, much younger though (duh!). You do good work.

love the eyelashes
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/08/2005 10:24:52 PM
Very nice lighting and exposure. I love the composition and the hightlights in her eyes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/08/2005 08:42:08 PM
I honestly see no "light color" here and I felt that the challenge was defined by this factor. In a B & W challenge, I would give this a 10!!!! I just feel that to do so right now would be unjust to the people who "met" the challenge. EDIT: after so much variance in the interpretation of the challenge, I am coming back through and this time judging on photogrpahic quality only, and not if it meets the challenge within reason. Bumping up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/08/2005 08:20:26 PM
A beautiful, beautiful job. I think I'm in love!

My No.1 and a maximum 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/08/2005 11:19:57 AM
Beautful image of a beautiful model, but the hair that partially blocks one eye has made it seem that they are not a matched pair, which in turn makes the shot seem out of balance, the darker eye draws the viewer's attention too much; I'd suggest a slight lightening of the exposed eye to bring it closer to the overall lightness of the picture. This should do well in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/08/2005 12:08:45 AM
Beautiful shot and model! Great exposure with just a little wahout.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2005 01:02:42 PM
to me this is more of a black and white than a light color on white background as the challenge suggested.
03/07/2005 08:50:16 AM
Beautiful and soft. I'd like to see it in color. 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2005 05:08:01 AM
Picture perfect!! i give a 10 for this...the subject is awesome!

A beautiful lady and a beautiful portrait. My favorite of the challenge. Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/06/2005 08:20:21 PM
Very nice job..pleasing portrait; very soft and elegant..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/06/2005 05:53:38 PM
Wow. This is one to study. I wish I could create a portrait like this. The only problem I have with this is that we can't see her right eye. I think if she moved her hair slightly, the image would get a 10 vote from me. As it stands, a 9.

Hmm...on second thought, I rank this a 10, but I hope you take my advice in the future. For portraits like this, the eyes are the key.

Greath portrait. 10!

Nicely composed and expose portrait. Super job! (the eyelashes distract a tad)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/04/2005 07:32:58 PM
Very nice portrait. Nicely lit, posed, and cropped. A gentle spirit.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/04/2005 06:56:55 PM
Beautiful model with really nice light on the face. A little overblown on the shoulder, but I didn't even notice until i went looking. The hair highlights work really well. And, for me, the contrast in her eyes makes this image captivating. Good luck in the challenge!

This is the kind of picture where you see the model and you are immediately invited into a kind of comfort and friendly intimacy. Love this photo. Light is dead on as is the composition. Nice pose and ...just fantastic all the way round.

03/03/2005 04:50:39 PM

I never could figure out what to use cool tri- and quadtones for, but now I know. Great work.

I don't care for the hair in front of her eyes, but this is a lovely portrait. If only someone could take such a nice one for me!

A top ten for me, great picture.

Beautiful lady nice job
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2005 09:43:50 PM
Striking picture - helps that your model is very pretty! I'd prefer to see more of the other eye, and think it might be nice to have seen it in color. One of the best in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2005 09:40:45 PM
almost looks like an IR portrait. Nice tonality and composition. a slight tension in her lips doesn't quite fit with the softness of the shot, but nicely done. -8-
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2005 09:20:09 PM
Very pretty. Wish the one wisp of hair didn't obscure the models striking eyes. Good luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2005 08:42:16 PM
Absolutely gorgeous image. The only slight distraction is that hot spot on her neck, but other than that, this is a flawless and beautiful photo that is perfect for this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2005 04:40:31 PM
Beautifully soft lighting. Great "light on white" photo. Like how you cropped it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2005 02:36:21 PM
Really like this...the light coming from the right is nice..it's a nice soft portrait. Nice eyes too. good luck
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2005 12:46:17 PM
By far the best of the portraits in challenge terms. very nicely done. I won't give it a 10 because the subject is lighter than the BG, but a 9 from me.
03/02/2005 10:49:18 AM
Beautiful, I love this look. Great Work
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2005 10:16:09 AM
A really super high key portrait. Smooth, bu very discernable skin tone variations. Crisp focus on eyes. Super lighting. And a good model. Very nice.

My favourite, only downside is the small amount of blown highlights on the RHS - 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2005 04:11:32 AM
Awesome! This is the only 'person' pic I've seen done well for this challenge (halfway through all entries. Only thing I would change is the hair in her right eye - beautiful eyes - hate to see them obscured. Should be a top ten finisher!

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/02/2005 03:06:55 AM
you have nearly nailed this one you have good tone details thru out and a touch ofdark tones in the eyes, essential for good high key,. worth a 10
