Oh wow..I actually have a criticism..
I love the concept and shot but I would have liked the crop to be a little tighter and model's hair to be more settled o_0
I really am going insane

Congrats. This shot immediately reminded me of grigrigirl's Evolve, both of which has a sort of inner soul quality to it, if that makes any sense.

Wow! What an artistic use of...whatever it is you did to make it look like she is turning into an old masters painting. I don't know how much of the "old masters" part was during the shot and how much was during PP...and I guess it doesn't matter. I love it!

Out of so many of "midas" photos in the challenge, this one certainly is one the best and stand out from rest of the crowd. I love the dreamish feel due to glow and the idea of transformation happening from real to gold. This surely needs to be in top 5. Goodluck.9.

when I saw the thumbnait I thought I would love this and of course, seeing it on the scree, I do...amazing photography, stunning beauty and a wonderful idea...I cannot fault this, except to say that her nose looks a little hard pressed against the mirror, but I have to give this a 10 and hope it gets the blue ribbon...my favourite in this challenge
