Not my first choice to submit, but the only one that didn't need too much editing. Slight crop, otherwise straight from camera. Hopefully it's "purple" enough.

In additon to the nice lighting and pretty model I like the subtle use of purple used here. There seems to be some noise artifacts due to over sharpening. More apparent on the cheek and neck. Other than that nice image.

Hey cool...another flower! (wink) For that, I give the lady a 10.

I see the purple.. but barely?!

when I am looking to this photograph, my first eye contact goes to the model and I need to look for the purple. I think this image loose the purpose of the challenge. Though the photograph is very sharp and the features of the model is coming out.

Nice idea! It could even use a bit more purple and—not to be overly picky—a bit less wood in the upper left corner. I was also thinking maybe purple lip stick and eyeshadow really would have put this image above and beyond. Just a though. Well done! 8o)

She seems a little too "unsharp masked". Great color but not sure about the crop. With such a tight crop I would have gotten rid of the wood floor above her head and perhaps lost the ear and added more purple to the top. Nice job and I'm jealous of her skin :) No neat image needed here! 7

Nice model

I'm a sucker for pretty girls and this one is certainly easy on the eyes. The crop here is a bit tight. I want to see her hair flowing out on that purple background beneath her. Also the bit of floor showing in the upper left is no good. Overall, not too bad. At least there's no flower in it! Good luck.

Purple makeup would have improved this more for the challenge.

Nice idea. Rotate your shot 90° clockwise that would look better.
