Pretty much a last minute submission, this is taken at around 22:00 pm before the deadline. This is Oli Geir and his girlfriend, Ornella. She´s only 17 and very promising as a model, he is of course very used to modeling having posed for me on a couple of occasions so they did great, had trouble choosing a shot I wanted to use. Lit with a single bowens 500 gemini flash with a 75° softlite reflector.

Oh and I know my title sucks :P Was up at 01:30 AM sending this in so I was getting a bit seepy. Hope no one will mind :D

Post processing is increased contrast and saturation in raw processing, cropped and rotated (tilted a bit down to the left), small amount of healing brush, shadow/highlights and curves.

Glad to see this in the top ten (I had it pegged for a ribbon). She's only 17?!? With shots like this, I'd say she definitely has a modeling future there. Better shoot more of her now before she gets too famous! Great job.

Well done man. White and black clothing is a difficult combination to expose for. How did you power the monolight?

Good stuff as usual. Nice job Larus.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Damn! You got beat by just a few decimal places :( Great job on this one Larus. I still can't believe she is only 17 years old ;)

Knew this one was yours, as I recognized Oli Geir. ;-) Congratulations on your top 10 finish (again) with this very slick "Miami Vice" image.

Wow dude, when will this be in the movie theaters here in Iceland?

Congrats on a top ten finish. However, I'm wondering how you are going to ever catch kiwiness if you keep producing these sub-7 entries? :P

Nice photo. The whites of their eyes stand out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great job. One of a handful of entries that has a true feel of a movie poster. Think it's great... well done!

05/14/2006 10:43:14 AM
Looks like a movie that I would never check out...but wonderful job. Great image!

Gorgeous models - interesting poses. Like the way they are looking in different directions.

Cool and effective poster like composition with interesting subjects. Bump.

A very nice image, but the male looks bored. That factor did not detract from the score though... just thought I would mention it.

Nice shot! Reminds me of a modern day Bonnie and Clyde. And she's hot ;)

One of the few that actually looks like a movie poster... Outstanding job! Nice colors and most importantly a great comp.

Yes they are.

Lookin' good! watch out for those fingerprints on the sword!

What a gorgeous... sunset! Very nice composition and lighting, with a great theme to it. I just now noticed the rifle, it seems just a tad dark on the stock IMO. Of course, I might have been distracted by the pretty... um, sunset. ;-) This will do very well, good luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2006 02:21:24 AM
No offence intended to your model, but I reckon this would have worked better without the guy in the background. My eye is constantly drawn to the white of his suit, which detracts from everything else the pic has going for it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2006 10:00:56 PM
The title is so-so, but the poster is WOW! Amazing colors in a difficult lighting situation. The guy's expression is odd but the young lady is superb! Fantastic effort!

Great idea at sunset...great work

Good light and background, the balance between the background and the models is really good
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A slick parody of Kill Bill plus Natural Born Killers. I want to see this movie!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/08/2006 05:26:09 PM
I am guessing that you have a nice lighting rig! There is an odd blue cast to him (given the ambient shade) and a slightly distracting shadow from her. Great timing on the sunset, though.

05/08/2006 02:47:17 PM
Great shot ... very well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/08/2006 10:35:05 AM
This is really good, sort of has a Miami Vice feel to it, I could definitely see this as a movie poster.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/08/2006 09:42:53 AM
Armed and dangerous. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/08/2006 08:21:34 AM
Nice image, feel it should be cropped closer though
  Photographer found comment helpful.

larus?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/08/2006 04:39:30 AM
ooh la la! wow...what I am looking for in this challenge is for a creative 'wow' shot that would go on a movie poster. I think that's what the challenge is all about...this would work! Looks like a James Bond girl
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/08/2006 02:32:14 AM
good shot and title.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/08/2006 12:43:27 AM
I believe I recognize at least one of these models... ;-) Didn't you just win a ribbon? LOL Fantastic shot. Love the vibrant colors and focus/DOF.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/08/2006 12:37:42 AM
This has to be Larus... :-D
Glad to see you putting so much effort into your entries, and I sure hope this image does well.

I would like to see the gun a little more highlighted.
