My daughter prepares for her dance class while listening to the teacher.
I used a layer of the high pass filter on the soft light blend, over sharpened, smudged the skin area, and used the selective color taking out the yellow.

I took several and preferred the shots where she is looking out waiting to dance as it relays the story more than looking at the camera would

No draganizer used here.

One of my favorite images from the challenge. But some of the shadows/hightlights look overprocessed. Its just the hair, it looks odd.
One my Top5 faves from the challenge.

I love this. You've given it a dreamlike quality in editing. I love the model's pose and her surroundings, the black hat and the posterboard of models in the bg really complete this portrait, only wish you could've cropped out the plant at the top left without compromising the rest of the fine image. 9

Nice protrait but did you do something strange to her breast?
05/21/2006 01:09:27 AM
I like the comp and the capture. It could use a bit more contrast IMO.
05/20/2006 12:18:37 AM
Well done! This is almost Norman Rockwell like. I like it.

I really like the tones of this photo..I'd love to know what you did in post processing! I really like that you captured the hands being busy, but I'd love it even more if she was looking at the camera..or perhaps even at her feet. Good lighting on this shot.

Very nice capture. I like the poster feel. Expressions are very natural.8.

I really like the feel of this shot.... the pp is interesting and creates well defined/interesting lines
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a nice shot that clearly tells me something about what the subject does. Even thought she's not looking at the camera, it's still and effective portrait. Well done.
05/17/2006 06:38:47 PM
there's an odd painty look to this that I think I recognize, but I can't place your nick in my brain.... hmmmm.

oh, so sweet, 10. wonderful use of this processing.

Very nice, I like this. Meets the challenge well, IMO

Unique and interesting lighting. It looks a little like a painting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/16/2006 06:22:42 PM
have you looked at this as a B&W? might make a nice one with the monotone prevalance in it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/16/2006 03:16:25 PM
Nice work. I could see even from the thumbnails that you captured the intent of the challenge. The subject is clearly in her environment. Nice lighting too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/16/2006 02:36:42 PM
I love the pose here. it's very natural to here, but unique as well. it's something she would be doing even if you weren't watching but works perfectly to show a dancer in her enviornment. very nice.

Well done with the concept. Overexposed to my taste. 6
05/16/2006 11:25:10 AM

05/16/2006 06:48:23 AM
the colour is a bit of for me, like in her face and hair.. nice idea tho!
05/16/2006 01:31:01 AM
Interesting post processing!
05/15/2006 08:52:42 PM
Great processing and sense of moment. The perspective works very well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/15/2006 04:07:05 PM
Nicely set up. This is one of those pictures that keeps you looking, building stories about what's just outside the frame to capture her attention.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/15/2006 01:16:32 PM
looks like a painting, nice effect
05/15/2006 01:08:18 PM
Like this alot. Very Normal Rockwell'ish! This is my top pick of all pic's in the challenge to win the blue (other than my own of course! :)

Good luck!

Interesting processing - it has a painterly feel to it. The outline of the figure is especially clear.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/15/2006 08:47:23 AM
Super image - I love the details in this shot - the ballet shoes, the leggings, the hair. It looks almost like a painting in the thumbnail.

Great shot in every way. Sharp, not overdone in any way and right to the point. 10 from me!
