I don't think this woman looks at rest at all. Doesn't have a darn thing to do with culture or anything else except that it didn't meet the challenge. I too gave it a low score. As stated by others my criteria first off is to see if the photo meets the challenge. If anyone could just submit what they wanted then we could just have open contests every couple of days and you could shoot what you wanted.

Good framing and high technical quality. B&W and a solid white background works very well with this image. I gave it a 6.

The subject is both placed nicely and sitting. The subject is not moving. Perhaps there is cultural misinterpretation here, but this subject appears to me to emanate an inner aura of peace and confident calm that is difficult to capture in an image.

For me that means it meets the challenge. Apparently it does not for many others. That is to bad. This is a good shot and deserving of a much higher score.

How does this fit the challenge? It seems more of a challenge that she sends us than a girl at rest.

Yes, great head shot, what does it have to do with the challenge?
09/29/2003 02:11:01 PM
Good expression, good detail.

Doesn't meet the chalenge "at rest" ? A good photo otherwise... :)

this is a very nice portrait, however it doesn;t really convey the feeling of at rest to me
09/26/2003 02:15:36 PM
A nice head shot, but I guess I'm dense. I can't see how this fits the challenge.

There seems to be a feeling of intensity in this shot rather than a feeling of calm or rest.
09/26/2003 03:59:54 AM
Subject does not appear to be placed, seated, or lying stably, and I don't feel calm in this shot. 4

you look like michael jackson,
09/25/2003 07:25:06 PM
It's hard to understand what your intent was. Is she resting?
09/25/2003 03:07:09 PM
i am not really clear on how she is 'at rest'
09/25/2003 12:50:19 PM
Don't get what this has to do with resting.
09/25/2003 07:23:01 AM
Nothing restful about this good photograph
09/25/2003 05:15:37 AM
Doesn't look to be resting

Good portrait shot, but it really doesn't match the challenge

I have no idea how this represents rest... really I don't. Nice shot of a pretty lady though.
09/24/2003 05:34:00 PM
What is "At Rest" here? I am missing it.
09/24/2003 02:41:04 PM
beautiful model, nice headshot, no relation to challenge for this viewer
09/24/2003 01:45:03 PM
how is this restful/ Just a standard portrait. Well light though.
09/24/2003 09:28:51 AM

09/24/2003 08:15:51 AM

09/24/2003 07:25:29 AM
Beautiful portrait bu she doesnt seem to be resting

It's a nice portrait, but it really doesn't convey "at rest" to me in any way.
