this is a sweet/funny and original concept--for this viewer I wish that the boy were more in focus and if any had to be sacrificed it would seem that it ought to be the one dreamt about

Nice couple. His head shouldn't have been cut off. Her skin looks very waxy. Are these mannekins? (just kidding). Your photo does have a dreamy look.

The title suggests that she is the dream to him yet she's the one in focus and he's out of focus, the other way around would have worked better for me, personally. The shot itself is well done, good cropping, excellent colors and the lighting is perfect.

This shot seems to be impossible from the perspective.

I really like this one, really like it! But i think she will end up whit a low score (hope not) because people seems want something "canned" for them to eat.
I really buggs me!

I like that the dreamer is out of focus (as dreams are) and his dream is very sharp. Not sure about the dreamer's head being cut off. It could have been intentional to keep him even more vague and dreamy I guess but I would rather see his entire head. Nice shot :)

I hope others are seeing this the way I am. The plane of focus and the depth of field are perfectly placed. I like that the boy is out of focus, the girl in focus, and the background neatly blurred. I like that I can't see the top of the boy's head, or even his eyes. I like the colors, and I think their clothes are very appropriate. This is a 9 from me. Congratulations.

Something about this shot is spooky. While it is ordinary in appearance and I don't honestly see the dream idea in it, I do think that the vacant look on her face and the focus on her seem to merit somewhat. I just can't put my finger on it.

Girl is real? She looks like a maniquee, but is beatiful.

She is very pretty..lovely focus and light. I love the shot but don't like his head cut off...that's the only negative. Very nice shot.

I like the shot of the girl, but would have cropped the guy out. her colors and contrasts are really nice.

Since the photo is about both of them, I'd like to see both of them in focus. Fun idea and interpretation of the challenge.

I looked at this for a long time trying to figure out if these are real people or mannequins. The skin tone or makeup almost makes it hard to tell. that alone adds a dream quality to this portrait.

You have got both subjects as main subjects in your title however you have blurred one subject out. Other than that this is very good, purdy gurl :-)

wonderful colors and great style. I would have prefered to have had both models in focus and either less of the young mans right side or all of it. The lighting is right on. the title has to take a bit to much of a roll in making this work but is still ok. hope I helped:) 6 Richard
