Excellent choice for a b&w conversion.
Her eyes and smile are in harmony and it's hard not to smile with her.
Congrats on your rib3.gif Manny!

Perfect. I vote 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2006 06:25:10 AM
Can't wait to hear the explanation for this one!!!! I really like this shot, improved only in my opinion with eye contact from the model and possibly a slightly different pose? The composition to my eye makes her head out of proportion....opinion only...voted.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2006 02:45:16 AM
Great shot and expression...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/03/2006 01:46:47 AM
Incredible how well you froze the rain in motion like that. Love her expression as well. 10

10/02/2006 05:08:20 PM
Beautiful. (But why is she naked-like?)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/02/2006 05:06:45 PM
Beautiful model. Her expression gives this photo such a nice feeling. The framing and capture of the rain is also nice.

Great shot.

10/01/2006 03:24:41 AM
Really nice - I just think maybe the lights in the background take away from here eyes
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2006 02:38:13 AM

Nice, but seems a bit noisy. Love the eyes! A wider crop might have looked good as well.

Singing in the rainnnnn!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/27/2006 03:23:05 PM
Kind of fun portrait; nice to see some more black and white getting around the place, but beyond simple portraiture I don't find mich here - and, in a challenge sense, the rain element seems almost like an incidental. It would be mean to mark you down for that though, but I've never really understood what's so interesting about portraiture ...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/27/2006 02:03:32 PM
Nice B&W - the models expression makes this IMO
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/27/2006 01:25:23 PM
her face has either too much make-up or too much neat image, which is too bad because otherwise it's a great image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/27/2006 10:44:31 AM
My favorite in this challange...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/27/2006 09:39:20 AM
Love the cheeky look on your models face. Shows a lot of personality. B&W a perfect choice. Not sure about the "raindrops" - a bit large and unclear. A great shot -well done
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/27/2006 05:40:25 AM
Win. Simple as that.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/27/2006 04:57:59 AM
good job
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/27/2006 01:15:50 AM
As I vote this a ten, I hope the girl just has perfect skin tones for black and white and that you haven't been using dodge on her face. Good luck, it is a great shot.

This rain looks like snow to me. :)
