Really like this image. I dont have a decent camera as yet but do me a favour would you? I have always wanted to do a nude lit by a starlite along the form of a womans body. Do this for me and you would be my inspiration. Well in fact you are. Thanks for wonderful and provoking images.

This is a clever idea that works really well, helped by the impish expresion of the central picture.

I really enjoy photogrophy by the way... the photo (purple haze)that i took was not belived to be a single shot image so it was kicked out from the contest.

Hi Julia, what's wrong? You got clothes on! :) I liked this portrait and the effect you accomplished. Thanks for posting the recipe. I'll try it out myself sometime. I know you're quite a modern woman but in this picture your looks are Pre-Raphaelite. Take care.

I like the eerie and haunting effect you got with the bottom lighting and the tones it rendered. The use of negative space is very effective and the composition is really good with the three different poses and looks you've taken. The lone track light in the foreground also adds alot to the image. Well done...one of my favorites for this challenge.

I think that you did a great job gettting the three images, but it would be better and less spooky if the color/contrast/brightness was adjusted a little.

Great ghostly feel to this one -- the low contrast works really nicely!

Pretty cool. Too bad you couldn't whiten up the green/yellow tone a little, but still a creative shot. Good job!

Neat idea. I think the inclusion of the lamp detracts from the overall image.

This is one of my favorites. I think it's because of the concept, but also the lighting you used. It reminds me of a silent-movie startlette. Could have been centered just a little bit more. There seems to be a bit more space on the left than the right and in a composition shot like this, it's symmetry is important.

I like that touch of being able to see one light for the three images of you. Nicely done.

If You could have moved the light source this shot would be even better. I like anyway

Wow, very nice job. I'm sure that took some acrobatics, and you look so serene. : )
