I like the set up, it gives me a sense of 'goddess'. I wish that it were a little bit sharper, because it would definitly be a top 10 finisher. Good stuff.

Great pic, looks a bit out of focus though...

Great composition! That make it different from other photos. Just the sharpness in detail would be nice.

I like this one - it was easy to figure out what you'd done, but it doesn't make the effect any less powerful. The camera focussed more on your hair than your face, so that you're slightly softened, and yet that only - for the effect you are going for - makes the photo more powerful. A nice shot.

This would look better without the wood tiles at the top. Good effect, but the focus is off. I won't penalize you too much because I appreciate the fact that you are trying something different.

Slightly blurry, and there's not enough contrast between the hair and the background, in my opinion.

a great picture idea, framing and positioning.My only complain is the focus. The whole image is blurry..or too compressed....I give you a 6.

An interesting shot though a bit too soft and indistinct. With such an unusual angle it would have been good to see some more texture and detail.

I would like this MUCH better if you cropped out that red distraction up top. Its very cool otherwise.
