I have no idea why your photos are not doing better than they are. For me you have deserved a ribbon long ago. Everyone of your last photos have been of ribbon quality, I personally do not understand what is wrong here.

wow, this should have done better. I love the lighting and the subtle shades of blue. It feels cool, yet at the same time warm and inviting. It definetely portrays a sense of calm to me even if the model doesn't look like she is actually, "resting" as in sleeping, she is still at rest. When shots like this don't break 6 I have no idea what the voters are thinking.

excellent composition and i like the hot lighting... = 10

Too tight to be resting although great composition, also too light for my liking as her legs become very odd looking

absolutely beautiful. great lighting, great expression. love the pale colors. this one's a winner.


PS: I also love the fact that you use your girl friend in all your shots.

Great model... great composition... maybe a little darker would help this to be perfect... its a 9.
09/29/2003 06:28:01 PM
You are an artist! Lighting, rest, subject, background, frame, mood. Are all perfect!
It's 10

kind of bright image. Maybe with more contrast would be better. interesting
09/28/2003 04:33:06 PM
Good light, I like the way the shadows fall across the image. She doesn't look that comfortable to me. It would have helped if she appeared more relaxed. Still, very nice photo.

tooooo posed.
09/27/2003 07:38:01 PM
Love the composition of this shot with the matching colours. However, it seems quite overexposed, so much that we are losing skin detail (it looks flat). Very pretty girl.

nice bright colors, good composition
09/27/2003 02:08:56 PM
Another beautiful photo from blurry, right! I really hope this one does better, I love it - 10.

Even though it is a nice photo, it looks as if you just downloaded it from the web of of an asian website.

Wonderfull portrait. The curves of the model and the soft lighting makes this a very attractive photo. Good luck in the challenge. 10. jacko.

Looks like a shot of a model I'd see in a magazine (maybe I will).

Amazing high-key portrait... the face tones are perfectly exposed, and yet the rest of the photo is so high-key. You've captured a great expression in your subject, and a great pose. Effective composition and crop. 10

i find the picture is too light... which makes the turquoise in the top right become more of a focal point than you might want it. the subject is lovely, and gives a feeling of being at rest

Beautiful shot! Lighting and color are superb. I love the effect of the shadows on the model. Beautiful model also.

Very nice. At first I thought it was to washed out, then I noticed that all the contrast was in the girls face. 9

Not sure about At Rest she looks a bit uncomfortable to me.

Way overexposed for my taste.
