This would have made a GREAT "Stepford Wives" poster!

This would make a great "How'd They Do That?" if you're interested!

Unique and creative, but I can't look at this pic for more than a few seconds.
Maybe it's just me, but this is too unnatural and creates an uneasy feeling.

Great idea, but the model's expression seems entirely at odds with the challenge topic.
02/21/2006 04:17:01 PM
I like it a lot.
I can't really think of anything else to say about it!!

Nice work Anastasia!
VERY inventive. Great look. Good choice to go monochrome. Wish I had a ring flash. - 9

Okay. Hello Barbie.

Very nice clear image. If you look to fast, you might miss the hearts. Maybe add color to the hearts so they stand out more. Wonder if this was done using advanced editing, or the special rules for the challenge...

Absolutely superb, lovely and a little unnerving.

Nice portrait, although her skin seems so smooth it looks almost doll-like. I like the heart rings in her eyes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow i like it. 8

Kind of spooky but it does work!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/17/2006 01:46:44 PM
Is this real or is this Photoshopped?
Never mind, it´s my top rated pic. 10!

Kind of creepy in a horror flick, dumped girlfriend stalker kind of way.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/17/2006 01:24:03 AM
First off, great idea. I like the sharpness, lighting, tones and the ring flash. However, nothing I associate "heart" with is represented here. There's no feeling of love, warmth, passion or anything. The model has an emotionless look about her almost android-like. The photo from a technical standpoint is really good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2006 08:22:27 PM
This is nice and sharp! I really like this shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2006 12:57:31 PM
I think this is a wonderful stylized photo! My only suggestion would have been to give the model a more loving expression, rather than this Stepford wife-ish look. Still, very creative!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/16/2006 08:44:29 AM
excellent use of a unique catchlight, very nicely done. the tones of this piece are perfect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

One of the top three in this challenge imo, very good idea.. it would maybe be better if the girl was smiling, but it's great as it is...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/15/2006 08:14:10 PM
Really cool portrait. The heart-shaped light reflection in eyes is awesome!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/15/2006 08:08:29 PM
this one is clean, even, fairly unique. The model helps the image because of her unique beauty. this could be creepy looking but isn't.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/15/2006 07:23:19 PM
Very clever!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/15/2006 03:12:20 PM
The idea is great, but it makes her look a bit unnatural
02/15/2006 01:31:48 PM
Blue Ribbon!

she looks like an evil love robot.

YIKES - the hearts in her eyes makes her look like an android. Well thought out idea!!
