Thanks for all your comments.
The 'stars' were added using an 'in-camera' digital filter, "white cross filter". The camera decides where to put the stars, based on bright highlights.
Once the pic was out of the camera, main adjustments were saturation, where I removed all colors except blue and magenta, and increased the hue of blue to make the purple more vibrant.
Oh, and for those who didnt see the irony - you mustnt know many Catholic girls :)
(PS - 24 1's and 2's? Come on, it wasnt THAT bad. Maybe you all thought it was spot-edited? Ah well.)

Great shot. I like how you desaturated the pic and left the purple.

I see this has been validated - Just curious how you managed the "shine" legally?

Hm..Interesting...

Which is the greater irony, the handcuffs or the sexy outfit? Anyway, an interesting photo. Did you use a starburst filter to get the highlights off the jewelry?

Good color and sparkle. Meets the challenge.

This shot reminds me of Madonna LOL... anyway I like the light flares on the rosary and handcuffs, good job of depicting irony.

Hm, someone got her intentions crossed (forgive the pun). The dress really makes this too because it is so skanky and brilliantly purple where the rest of the shot is grayscale.

Great color, I like the shinyness.

Were we allowed to disreguard the rules for this one? I can still the purple in the points of the stars. So, to me, this was obviously desaturated and manipulated using layers. Such a pity because the photo is really good except for the hot spot on the handcuffs. Prove me wrong and I\'ll give you a 9 instead of a 1.
Changed to a 9 and eating my hat. Thanks for being so nice about the whole thing.

very funny, creative idea. don't like the color combinations, "stars" look way overdone.

Not a bad shot, but it could have been better without all the stars, I know what you were going for but it's very distracting to me. But overall a good shot

Congratulations on being one of the few who really know what irony means, while making a visually interesting photo!

Frankly, I don't care if this is irony or not. I absolutely love this shot. The composition could be less centered and create more interest, IMO.
I like the use of color, very appropriate. (yes, I'm a recovering catholic)

good idea. I think it would have worked fine without the star filter. exposure is pretty uneven, with the glare on the handcuff being the most obvious overexposure.

Being arrested - or into S & M? Too common to be ironic I fear
10/01/2003 07:54:41 AM
Sharpness needs improvement, overall not bad.

Quite an excellent Catholic girl by the look of her ;)

Good idea although a bit blown out on the handcuffs. How did you manage to get those star effects without spot editing?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2003 02:23:51 AM
no irony
10/01/2003 01:35:52 AM
spot editing?

Very nice. Did you use a star lens?
