Congratulations on your top 20 finish with this sharp capture that offers a tiny window into the character of the subject.

I love this shot and wished it would have placed in the top 3. OH WELL!

Thanks for all the comments and votes!

I can agree that I maybee should have removed a little more red and cropped the photo in the top and to the right. The blue light is offcourse removed in my copies.

Love the hair and angle of her head, lose the blue light and she could this for advertising her talent, 7

Wish she had been holding the guitar a bit higher, but it's not like you can say excuse me, more guitar. but the fact you caught her with the hair in motion is nice
08/21/2005 06:32:44 PM
Nice image. I think the blue light above her head is an unfortunate distraction.
08/21/2005 02:32:59 PM
Good live capture to nail down the attitude. Bumping up.

great colors, composition, framing and texture
08/21/2005 09:49:55 AM
grate shot, like the pose
08/20/2005 08:55:00 PM
A really super bass player study. The machine heads, the terrific hair and the awful tattoos, the facial expression and posture, and even the blue stage light; it all works to create a lot of interest and impact. Excellent composition, well captured & processed. 8

awesome capture of her hair
08/19/2005 07:06:26 PM
Nice imagel I know that it could not be helped but I find the blue light behind your subject distracting.
08/19/2005 05:50:50 PM
The way the light works with her hair and how her hair flows keeps my eye in top of the frame, looking at here face. I like that effect. Under normal circumstances (when you are not limited to dpc basic ruls) you'd probably clone out the light above the head. So let's think that away and you've got a good portrait. 7

Looks like the lady's moving in the pic. Awesome moment to capture!
08/19/2005 08:19:52 AM

08/19/2005 12:59:16 AM

Great photo, not sure what it is I like about it but I do like it ;) focus seems ever so slightly soft though.
08/18/2005 06:09:17 PM
Excellent, wouldn't look out of place in a magazine 10
08/18/2005 03:36:42 PM
great! i love her hair flowing
08/17/2005 10:12:26 PM
This has a true rockin' sense to it. Great capture. The movement of her hair really sets the tone.
08/17/2005 06:58:02 PM
Nice timing with the hair.
08/17/2005 12:38:54 PM
Great tatoos and hair. But WHY include half a hand? If you're going to have a hand, have the WHOLE hand. Also, I'd have placed her nearer the right edge of the frame, otherwise the composition feels unbalanced and unimaginative.

Very nice shot. 10

The flowing hair gives action and life to the picture. The tattoos are nice. It's too bad the blue light wasn't in a slightly different position, looks like it's growing out of her head. 9.
08/17/2005 11:04:38 AM
fun capture of hair, some tone adjustment to reduce the red would have helped. The bass head and half a hand is all that is captured turning those elements to distractions instead of major elements
