Very cool. The fingers almost look like bare legs superimposed over the lips - that's actually what I saw before I clicked the thumbnail. It has a lot of levels.

WOW!!!! I could stare at this one forever!

Man! I LOVE this photo!
about once a week I'll sit down and just browse photos to try and get a grasp on this whole photography thing and THIS one jumped out at me more than most.

I gave this a 10, would have given it a 10+ if possible. By far the most beautiful sensual pic I ever came across.

Just saw your comments

"After the challenge i think i'll upload this to istock and shutterstock to see how well it does"

Please don't sell yourself short on such a beautiful image it is worth far more then what they will pay.

Reminds me of an old mystery movie!

But you did not need to say it here. Very suductive focused lips with sorft background. Fingers are a bit distracting though. Over all still one of my higher ratings.

Superb

Don't care for the title much and the hands are featured too strong in the image. The lips came out very nice and could easily have featured in a lipstick advert....

Intriguing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/23/2005 10:09:50 PM
Yes it does. I'm not quite sure I know what this might be used for, but the lighting, composition and dof are very well done. 8 -danny

Well it sold me on this. The light ios great, I love the shaodows that are created. The highlights on the lips really add to the photo too. The DOF completes the package. Well done 10

Yes, it does. Sumptuous detail. They look positively good enough to kiss.

03/23/2005 02:49:56 PM
Lovely lighting, composition and DOF with the emphasis where it should be on those lovely lips - well done

This looks like an ad for a lipstick company..it's wonderfully created..9

I love the compositon and the lighting. The detail is exquisite. It's a quibble, but I find those looming empty nostrils a little disturbing, though I can't think of a good solution to the problem.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2005 05:37:43 PM
very pretty. Than angle makes her fingers look kinda big, however it is so lovely that I will not score down 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2005 05:05:58 PM
i'd like to see a little less shadow in the upper lip it would make a much stronger focal point great shot for composure and dof the title is appropriate too!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2005 02:58:56 PM
Perfect lips! Very nice detail.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/21/2005 02:21:27 PM
It's for a car commercial right? :D

Fabulous entry with a fabulous lighting set up. Love the details on the lips and the focus as well though I must the nose and the teeth are a little bit distracting, but I wouldn't want to change the angle just to get rid of the nose and if the mouth was cloed it wouldn't have been this sexual. SO I pretty much think this is a perfect exemple of stock photography, and if I was a member (It's not my fault) I would have certainly given this a 9
