Thanks to my model for helping me once again with my angel theme. I promise... this is the last of the wings for a while. Ihad originally tried to set this up for the Road challenge but I could not find the right shot from my original shoot.

I was very happy with this one but I screwed up the white balance(forgot to change it back from my photography class) I made the shot a duotone to overcome the problem with a blue cast. I like the final result.

The Angel got her wings from the tree and now is attempting to go back from whence she came :D

Hope you like it

Coley - PLEASE keep the story going!
I think it is really miserable that people think you should stop with the angel pics just because one did well in a challenge. I for one think they are great.
Besides - when do angels have time to style thier hair???

Love the story. Your imagination is kick a~~~

Keep it up. OH, I was telling my sister all about the photo of the "flying too close to the ground" and she loved it.

I'm dissapointed this one didn't do better than it did. I remembered the shot from the Oops challenge as soon as I saw it, and I love the series idea. I say you should use the concept again when the right challenge comes up.. in fact, one might be up right now :)

Hi, Cole!
Sorry to say that, I don't feel it fair to use the same set and partly the same story as in Oops! II. The image itself would have got a 7 or even an 8, I love the expression of the model again. Because of the mentioned reasons I gave you a 6 only.

Love the concept of the photo. The sepia and the contrast fit well.

Teehee. ..is that the girl from that awesome blue ribbon photo whose wings got caught in the tree. Well. . .this is another contender if you ask me! This has such a "look" to it that is so appealing. Awesome job! I hope she's a while from getting to that home for a while tho, dont you ? ?

I think its time to get another outfit? I think this one is over used. Maybe a new hairdo from "Fallen Angel" would be better too. I'll give you creativity though, and nice acting on your model's part; however, not liking you giving up anonymity in the most recent challenges with this theme since your recent win. It may be time to try something new.

I bet you got numerous funny looks doing this one. So out-of-the-box, It's great.
