I'm glad you posted this again! I didn't even know it wasn't in my favorites, but it deserves to be.

I love everything about this shot. Period. It could be in Vogue just as easily as an art photo magazine. Congratulations.

Thanks for all the constructive comments. This is my first DPC entry.

This is a candid shot of my wife in a real dressing room in a dress shop in San Miguel, Mexico. I saw the shadow on the wall and the way the dress and wall paint interplayed. The light was so low that I had to rest the camera (Nikon Coolpix 5000) on the counter top. I removed the counter and a tissue box. From reading the editing rules I thought that level of editing would be OK. I just submitted the original at DPC's request. Hopefully my first entry won't be DQ'd ;-)

I was hoping for a higher score, but after reading the forums a bit, I guess I should be content with a 6+. 2 Favorites! I am flattered.

I see some amazing work out there as browse through the images. Hopefully I can keep up. I have an entry in Textures III that is doing about as well as this one.

Agreed this should have scored and placed much higher. Wish now I could say I was the one to give it the 10, I did not, but I did give it a 9. This would make a great fine art print. Kudos for your fine work.

This has a real painterly feel. I thought it would place much higher! Still, congratulations, it's a wonderful shot.

A very nice image. Your model's dress matching the back wall is especially nice, as is the shadowed reflection off the upper wall that you smartly saw fit to include in the composition. It has a very casual, continental feel to it. Very well done.

Soft colors and fun reflection make this a wonderful image.

Lovely soft atmosphere, looks like she is enjoying a rest after a walk. I could imagine a busy market outside. I would have cloned out the black stuff on the floor.

Row of gold tiles is distracting.

Very artful. I like all of the green tones. Nicely composed too.
