Another great angle. Makes her legs look amazingly long. Very nice perspective.

I realy want something wide, but I also wanted to use it for portraits, so I was browsing for something that would make me go WOW, I realy need this lens.
Guess what? I found it right here.
Great shot, great perspective. A favorite!

If circle is in the title and it is appropriate I will give a 10. I am sorry if you do not agree with my method of voting – but scores are all I have.


Keeping to theme is of course key, but having circle in the title is zero indication that it meets the theme. It will punish good photos with bad themes and reward blindly.

But as to this photo, fantastic. Beautiful model, great depth of field, solid composition.

Congratulations on your top 10 finish! I had this one picked for a ribbon, but top 10 in a field of over 500 ain't too shabby! :-)

I love the angle and composition. Bumping way up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Anytime there is an attractive woman in a picture it is a plus. This shot looks good. Lighting looks good, and of course, fits into the theme of circle. An all around nicely done shot.

Nice shot - it will do well.

Great shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Strong edges and jaunty angles add dynamism to the shot, giving it a lot of interest. The model's face adds a neat counterpoint to the shaded part of the torus.

Am I wrong, or does this seem like the hero shot of a DVD cover for some action movie? Great shot. 8

Great wide dynamic view.
Altough the black of her clothes works well with the white of the background I'm still unsure if I like the blownout background.

07/06/2005 02:23:29 PM
IMO, this would have been much better without the girl. She does nothing for the shot.

Interesting angle.

Thank you for your message - You are quite right and I stand corrected. I have adjusted my score accordingly.

Very nice shot. Hopefully the voters don't mark you down because you can't see a full circle :-)
