What a beauty and what a capture to glorify it. 8

Nice composition and lighting. Good luck in the challenge!
09/18/2005 09:14:39 PM
lovely use of whites/grays - one of my falvirotes this challenge
09/18/2005 09:13:43 PM
A classic pose
09/18/2005 07:44:34 PM
Very nice photo. Detail around and including the eyes is stunning. Composition works well. Focus and levels are very good. Pretty girl. Congrats on a superb image.

Nice portrait, keeping it slightly off center works great.

Very nicely done.
09/17/2005 09:08:52 PM
Great color balance; good match of background color with shirt. Very powerfull eyes. Great composition and excellent lighting. Would have like to see some skin texture; oh well I guess it's the new trend. I think that would have been the greatest portrait here if just a bit more natural looking. Don't get me wrong, I am all for photoshop enhencements, but total annihilation of skin texture is a sad trend. Still, a well deserved 8.
Return: bumping to 9

Beautiful model and very nice portrait. I honestly can't find anything I would do to improve it. Nice job.
09/16/2005 09:46:47 PM
Very pretty. I like her pose, as well as the lighting. Nice clear image.
09/16/2005 09:00:15 PM
great lighting, but it seems slightly overexposed along the left side of the sweater and a bit on the hair. -.3EV might have been good.
09/16/2005 04:35:50 PM
Simple and beautiful.
09/16/2005 03:38:01 AM
Stunning. 9

Very beautiful shot! 9
09/14/2005 12:15:37 PM
I like everything about this shot, very well done. Hope it scores very high.
09/14/2005 12:14:14 PM
Excellent capture of her eyes. 9
09/13/2005 10:50:30 PM
Nice shot, such a soft face in contrast to those eyes.
09/13/2005 10:21:04 PM
I really like this. I like the composition and the colors. Her skin looks a little too smooth though. Her eyes look cool.
09/13/2005 09:05:20 PM
One of my two favorite shots from this challenge. Everything is perfect. Composition, detailed texture, lighting, and of course, and incredibly beautiful model. Could be a winner! One that will be added to my favorites <10>

good use of suble colors, interesting cropping , odd but I like it. and it is beautifully lit.
09/13/2005 07:03:48 PM
The lighting and focus is spot on! (though my only gripe is the eyes are a little too oversharpened) Composition is very pleasing and gorgeous model as well. BOL!

clean, clear, sharp
09/13/2005 02:42:23 PM
glossy finish with sparkling eyes assist in this one standing out.
09/13/2005 02:20:58 PM
Very nice, looks like if it showed more of the shirt she could be posing for an expensive clothes catalogue. And I mean that in a good way. 8
09/13/2005 10:38:33 AM
This is very pretty. I like the light color choices you made with the model, her clothing and the light. It's all very complimentary. I like the composition. The skin is a little too flawless for my tastes, but that's just me. Overall, very beautiful. :-)

Too much PS
09/12/2005 09:51:44 PM
This has a nice softness to it that doesn't look plastic. Very nice lighting. This would do nicely in any model's portfolio as a beauty shot.
09/12/2005 08:59:30 PM
Nice Picture, beautiful pose. The face is a bit too soft and the arms are distracting. I probabily would have cropped closer to the face. The eyes are Amazing!
09/12/2005 08:24:51 PM
Nice portrait of a pretty young lady. I like the eyes.
09/12/2005 07:15:21 PM
Such a wonderfully soft shot. I like the off-centered image. Great Job.
09/12/2005 02:25:56 PM
very nice, maybe a different crop would have been better
09/12/2005 01:36:05 PM
This is technically a very well composed, exposed and post processed shot. My only suggestion would be to try to create a portrait that conveys something about the person. To me that is the intent of portraiture. Put her in a context, have her show her personality. There isn't enough information here for me.
09/12/2005 01:20:58 PM
Beautiful portrait, but I would have crop just a little below the chin.
09/12/2005 12:50:00 PM
Really pretty pose and color tones. Soft and visually appealing.
09/12/2005 12:28:12 PM
Well that turned out nicely, didn't it? Fantastic portrait- one of the better in the challenge. Great job!
09/12/2005 09:19:13 AM
Beautiful compostion and model. Over-smoothed skin.

Nice look, Nice eyes, Nice shot
09/12/2005 01:43:09 AM
Nice placement of the subject. Smart to have her dressed in white to keep the tones of the picture similar. Very nice indeed.
09/12/2005 01:08:04 AM
Very pretty and well lit. Best I have seen so far. 9
09/12/2005 01:03:47 AM
great photo and pose.
09/12/2005 12:53:47 AM
The clarity of her eyes is breathtaking. I love how she just looks so nice and soft and smooth, but not plastic. Great shot one of my favorites. I think this will be in the top three. Great shot.~Roni
09/12/2005 12:45:26 AM
too much neat image
09/12/2005 12:41:13 AM
Love the pose. Her eyes are so reflective. The monochromatic theme is nicely done. Nicely composed as well. The skin on her face seems a tad flat with the piercing light in her eyes but that's my only critique.
