Greetings from the Critique Club.

What can I say? There is nothing to add that hasn't already been said, it's a lovely, beautiful shot, the outtakes were just as beautiful. Congrats on your ribbon. I love the shot and have nothing to add.

Natural is best. Congratulations on the blue for this yellow rose. To share a little-known fact, the song, "The Yellow Rose of Texas" is about a mulata - ethnic term for female first generation of mixed european and african ancestry (not to be too rabbit-proof).

04/07/2006 10:15:48 AM
Beautiful. The contrasting green just compliments the gorgeous model and lush yellow color. I also like the composition and how her eyes continue the line toward the corner of the photograph. Well done.

I love the model just not sure about the background. Still lovely though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/05/2006 05:09:36 PM
I want to know what kind of eyedrops she uses, is it White-Out brand? They would be very helpful to me after margarita night. Anyway, it's a lovely portrait, good clarity and dof... and her expression is quite fetching. Nice yellow flourishes. Her nose looks a just a little red to me (maybe she's been hitting the margaritas too... ;-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/05/2006 03:15:35 PM
This is great! The colors (combination of brown, yellow and green works well together), the pose, the light, the dof: 10 from me.

Just browsing, not voting yet...but I love this one! I am sure it will be one of my tops.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/04/2006 08:07:43 PM
Awesome portrait. The yellow works so well against her skin and the lush gradient-green background. The only technically wrong thing I can see is that the editing around her shoulder (in the middle) isn't as well edited as the other edges. Top 5 for sure, anyway.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/04/2006 01:19:36 PM
Obviously a ribboner. Congrats in advance on this stunning portrait. It almost leaps off the screen its so vivid and alive. Wow.

Beautiful model. Her eyes grab my attention immediately. Lovely. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/03/2006 01:43:39 AM
Love the expression and the hand oh so gently resting on the chin conveys the idea of lost in daydreams look. The colors of yellow of her dress & the roses as well as the green background are bold and vibrant. Lighting on the subject is spot on and there is that healthy glow to her skin that makes this lady radiate charm and charisma. Very well done I expect this to do very well.
