Just playing with macro on my new camera, so not very imaginative - I'm a bit new to all this. Taken on coffee table with my son holding a torch for lighting, not exactly technical. Would have liked to have taken out a few gltches such as the white spot on the forehead and the white mark just below the cheek etc, but the rules say I can't, so it's as is out of the camera.

With the notable exception of the two comments made by morons - thanks to everyone who took the time to comment! I am new to this site, new to photography and new to digital with a new camera. I really didn't think this would place so high.

For anyone intersted in seeing the subject for what it really is go to this link:

I had no idea this was a macro! I thought it was a huge statue in a museum setting with perfect lighting provided. I had given you a 7...to me, effort counts a lot plus you tricked me into thinking I was seeing something grand and perfect...raise my 7 in your average to a 9. I'm going to go snack on some crow now. : P

Nice .. .although a little overexposed in places.

Very nice! I think this is one of the more artistic entries this week.. Is this a statue of some sort? I like the shadows and the contrasts here... great shot! - jmsetzler

Cool statue, took a second look before I caught on. Really nice for the most part, minor nit: cheek and upper arm are washed out.

so cold

Very nice. I guess that's a sculpture, but the way it's photographed it looks strangely living. I can almost imagine her breathing! When elements are in shadow, we use our imagination more I suppose. Well done :) I feel like giving this 10.

Almost thought it was a real person when I first saw the photo. Nice contrast, and lighting.

This must be some sort of statue. This picture makes me want to know more.

Good use of strong shadows. Does it meet the challenge, well maybe.Ok

Nice composition and framing, but statue shots like this don't appeal to me all that much.

Nice photo. I would have been more impressed if you could come up with a shot of similar quality with real people. I do like this but it falls into my 'of course it's gonna look great with that for a subject' category. I still gave you a good score...but it could have been higher.

Outstanding shot. Well done with shadows and highlight on model. B&W concept works well with this mood.

Too dark in lower left quadrant.

In this case, the use of grain and very high contrast are used with good effect. Well done!
06/17/2002 02:46:00 PM
Interesting effect, which makes this one of the more unusual photos and a good entry.
06/17/2002 12:10:00 PM
