this was a spur of the moment idea i tried, and the shot is semi candid. it was way underexposed, and when i pushed the levels, it got really vivid and grainy.

well, thank you, ME. that's extremely kind of you, even if it isn't true ~_~

I'm not sure if I added a comment to this one yet, but I think this is a very excellent picture. If anyone says something's distracting them, or there's too much light on their face, or anything like that, I just think those people don't want to admit that your photograph might be better than some of the things they have ever taken, or submited in one of the challenges :-)

(I love posting comments, muhahahahhaha)

dude. thanks : ) . i hadnt looked back here in awhile. i *did* want to shoot her against white but we ran out of time. a beautiful girl and really a pleasure to work with. I'll put up some other shots from this session as soon as I can : ) ..

Yah!! Kollin.

I must say Kollin, this model owes you a great debt because this is one nice photo you gave her.

I am not one to mess with a photograph..it is what it is. But I wonder what she would have looked like laying on a white background..allowing her hair to really be seen. Would have it ruined the nice , dark shadows? Hard to say. But I find this photo very good regardless.

well shot. great colors.
06/02/2002 08:10:00 PM
Colors seem a bit saturated, though I think it's probably the result you wanted. The top left thing and whatever the other thing is on the right seem distracting.
06/02/2002 07:59:00 PM
You're really messing with me now. This is the third picture I want to call "my favorite. It's a stunning photo because of that green dress and the Goth skin against the dark background.
06/02/2002 07:43:00 PM
Are you a Saudek fan?
06/02/2002 04:55:00 PM
I like the colors and the composition.
06/02/2002 02:00:00 AM
This is a nice clean shot great layout the only thing I would change is to add a dimly lit soft light in the bottom right.
06/01/2002 10:39:00 PM
This is nice
06/01/2002 10:04:00 PM
I'm really looking forward to finding out how you set this photo up. Good job!
05/31/2002 12:24:00 PM
Hey, Buddy, this is supposed to be an *amature* photo contest. {g}
05/31/2002 10:02:00 AM
OK, so I know it's not intentional, but I like how she's looking at the 10 on the voting score.... :-) The colors (the red and green) definitely aren't standard, but they all work really well together. Her face loks a little grainy, sharpened, over saturated or something (I can't quite tell what it is that I'm seeing -- sorry), but I like the look it gives to the shot. There's that little loop of something on the far right edge that I could wish wasn't there, but that's not that big a deal. Good shot.

"Pretty girl killed by vomit colored dress" I really like this picture but I dislike the dress. Bottom of the skirt is rolled up. Face seems a bit to bright, glare on the background in the upper left hand corner distracting. Its a good idea that in my opinion was mostly hurt by color choice.
05/31/2002 01:33:00 AM
Has a genuine feel of a black and white old photo thats been colourised
05/30/2002 03:39:00 PM
I starred at this picture for five minutes wondering what drew me to it. Then all of a sudden I realized my focus was fixed to her face even though I wanted to look at everything else, good use of composition and lighting.
05/30/2002 08:36:00 AM
Great color...Love the green dress, maroon background..every color here.

I found myself wanting a little more detail to the hair..she has such great lenght and color that it just SCREAMS to be highlighted more.

One of my 10 best.
05/30/2002 02:11:00 AM
nice usage of color
05/29/2002 11:28:00 PM
Rather over exposed patch top left detracts from the image
05/29/2002 06:29:00 PM
Fantastic colors! Wonderful pose. Something I can't put my finger on about the cropping isn't sitting quite right, but a small, SMALL annoyance. Fantastic shot!
05/29/2002 05:19:00 PM
05/29/2002 05:08:00 PM
Very good contrast, tonality and use of colours. I also like the toned eyes. Nice pose, too.
Simple, but nice!
05/29/2002 04:08:00 PM
Wow! This pops! I like the creases in the fabric as it wrinkles over her body.
05/29/2002 12:36:00 AM
Great pic...Love the colors.
05/28/2002 05:41:00 PM
I am assuming the color was "on purpose", so I am giving you the benefit of that doubt (the title helped you here). I think I would have liked to see the girls hair better, or lose the bright spot in the upper left corner, either way, it's better, IMO)
Photo 9 Creativity 10 People 9 total 9 (if the surreal coloring was an accident, please lower your score 4 points, but only you can say that for certain, so you get the 9)
05/28/2002 05:22:00 PM
i like this shot, but i think it's really underexposed. looks like you may have tried to compensate for it in photoshop and got the whites a little too exposed without really making the rest any better. everything else about the shot is good, though.
05/28/2002 04:22:00 PM
I'm not sure what to make of this... I'm a little haunted, yet I keep coming back to it. Appealing.
05/28/2002 04:20:00 PM
Very striking, good mood and colors.
05/28/2002 03:38:00 PM
A real good shot, though I would have preferred a little more light on the left hand. Great lighting on the face. All in all, in my top 10.
05/28/2002 03:35:00 PM
Nice lighting, good color and effect! It would be interesting to see without the reflection from the backdrop in the upper left. Regardless, well done.
05/28/2002 12:28:00 PM
nice shadows and color. good composition.
05/28/2002 02:09:00 PM
Nice photo! The blueish ting on her legs and hand on the left is a bit strange but this photo stands out this week... good job! = 9
05/28/2002 10:29:00 AM
05/27/2002 08:33:00 PM
You got a well deserved 10.
05/27/2002 08:26:00 PM
05/27/2002 06:50:00 PM
Very dramatic shot, love the green dress. I'd like her pose better if her neck didn't look so uncomfortable. This is good work, nice light.
05/27/2002 09:53:00 AM
Great composition. Perhaps could have been a bit brighter. What's that on the right edge of the screen? Love the colors.
05/27/2002 09:14:00 AM
wow that is a nice photo. That green dress is amazing! That thing over laping on the right side is a little distracting though...
05/27/2002 08:57:00 AM
Nice fashion picture.
05/27/2002 05:21:00 AM
cracking photo, cracking model. Should be in FHM or Loaded.
05/27/2002 04:18:00 AM
Nice dreamy feel to the pic. Good selection of colors on the backdrop and clothes. to enhance the effect.
05/27/2002 02:55:00 AM
This is absolutely fantastic :). I love the colouring. It looks just like one of the watercolour illustrations from a fairy tale book I have. I also love the draping of the dress, the way it's caught by the lighting. If only the light wasn't glancing off that upper left hand corner!
05/27/2002 12:21:00 AM
stunning. very christina riche
05/27/2002 12:08:00 PM
Congratulations. Nice low-key image
