Magical profile, and the image is just perfect, but not sure about the subject matter for zen.....

Beautiful play of light......

Powerful. Definitely makes a statement. Zen?

not sure it really conveys the idea of zen to me, but it's still a sensual classy shot... though it does almost look like the girl on the left is about to dig in her nails to the other ones throat... very elegant shot nonetheless; 7

I really like this picture, I will keep this idea in mind when I get remarried. 10

Beautifully photographed image. I love the tones and the shadows in this image. Very nicely done.

zen has no glamour
zen is the square
two angles become. 6

i like this a lot. the composition, lighting, everything looks perfect.
08/01/2006 01:31:53 PM
Ooooooh, this is beautiful! I love the tones and above all, the balance made by the space between them. Great job!

This is a well taken photo but I, and this may be my interpretation, but what is Zen about this??
08/01/2006 08:39:23 AM
Brilliant lighting and composition 10

A nice shot, great use of minimal tones, but I don't sense a calmness here, in fact, it's a bit turmultuous for me to look at.

This one is just a bit over the top for me. I realize that there is a story and a point you are trying to make, but to me if I were to just see this image not knowing what the challenge is I would never think Zen. 5

Beautiful lighting and mood created, I really like this picture 9

A very well done image, but I can't really see haow it fits the challenge.

HEE HEE - Gary, I recognize those girls. ;~)

Beautiful lighting and shadow.
07/31/2006 07:27:04 AM
you can just feel the tension in this image, very well done

I honestly do not find this photo "serene" or example of zen photography. The reason why I choose to comment on this one is the execution of photo. It is a superb photo and is very well composed. I love the way it communicates the feeling. Technically well executed and lighting is superb. But sorry- I cannot see the relation to challenge theme (maybe due to my own limited knowledge on subject) and giving this just 6 for now. I'd have given this 9 or 10 any given day if this was for any other challenge where is fitted better.

well done, great tones
