Okay, so another self portrait. And, yes, another last minute entry (really need to get out of that bad habit)
I can already hear the comments(bad quality,grainy,bad lighting,bad background) but for some reason, I wanted to enter. Really bad....I need help....

Post challenge:
OMG! I was absolutely NOT expecting that! Mostly because I still stand by my pre-challenge statement. I was thinking top 20 at best...well, wow...THANK YOU everyone for the votes and comments, you're all so great:-))))

If you're just 14 years old now you will become the best of the best one day. I looked at your portfolio and it's amazing. Congrats with the ribbon!

Wow, well done!

This is a terrific shot. I think you've gotta be the youngest ever blue ribbon winer here.

The funny thing is this is only your second best submission at best (your darkness entry was brilliant).

awesome shot
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/06/2005 11:37:25 PM
This caught my eye because the details are nice and clear and there is something interesting about the low saturation of the colour
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/06/2005 12:11:27 AM
Easy top pick. I'm not a weatherman, so I won't try out my forecasting abilities, but if I had to guess, I'd say you've got a ribbon coming!!
Perfect 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/05/2005 11:56:46 PM
This is just exactly what we would expect in this challenge. The shot is crisp, clear, clinical, seductive. It equates affluence and youth in the normal and expected ways. It is perfect in every technical detail. It is the perfect stock photograph for this catagory. (In both respects.) I feel very fortunate that there is at least one such entry in the challenge. And if I were studying to learn how to make a living doing commercial photography or graphic design, I'd wish to see perhaps fifty or a hundred analogous entries. But I'm kind of happy that the challenge has been construed more broadly.

Apologies for ranting in your space. It's a highly polished effort for which you deserve to be proud.

08/05/2005 11:28:31 PM
The comp and Idea warrant a high score! If the jewlery were brighter ot there were a little more contrast I'd give it a ten.. It's still one of my top picks for this challenge. the lighting is great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/05/2005 03:09:47 PM
Light is just beautiful on this skin, colors came out really soft and smooth..like it lots..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/04/2005 04:08:54 AM
Great shot. Could be out of a fine jewelry catalog. - 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/04/2005 03:06:24 AM
I like this photo but the focus is a tad soft! The hot spot reflection on the bracelet is a bit distracting as well....and you know what that means? Sorry, point off! Well done though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2005 06:41:24 PM
Well done. Nice color tones, nice composition. The faceless model keeps the point of interest on the dazzle.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2005 04:19:19 PM
beautiful but something about the mood gives me the feeling that it is costume jewelry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2005 01:46:34 PM
Wow! A little dark IMHO. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2005 12:19:25 PM
Pretty soft lighting...I really like the toned down color pallette...really nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2005 10:14:10 AM
Great composition and subject. This is the best of the people shots
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2005 08:30:02 AM
Content, composition, lighting, colour are all superb. 9 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2005 12:56:14 AM
Very nice. Looks like the cover of Bizaar or Vogue Nice filter.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2005 12:47:03 AM
I would have liked this a lot more if the lighting was better. I really like the composition, though. (To me, good lighting means "spend lots of money." Wish I could.)

Post challenge:

Well, I guess the lighting deal didn't really matter! Congratulations on your win!
