I really like how this looks inverted. Nice work.

This image hints at the illusion of a glass sculpture lit from within. Super use of the negative mode. Very underrated.

Outstanding negative presentation. Very nice lines. Bump.

Graphically very strong. Good use of the square crop, with an almost perfectly symmetric composition, very well balanced. The post processing works well IMO. Good job on a difficult shot.

Stunning take on a classical pose.

great pose. Fantastic idea to create the lit look of the head. i'll get picky and wish you softened the hair outline, as it looks like it was selected with the straight outline tool. Perhaps the blotchiness was intentional to create a marble/statue look, but I really would like to see this smoothed out.

So I have tried these before, and I failed, however I think this has perfect execution, and I sincerely believe it will do well. GL mate. I cant wait to see the final calculations on this one.

I think the negative filter adds too much light and vitality to an image that's trying to communicate a dark emotion. Good idea, maybe a little overboard with pp though imo.

Eirie but great. I like the tones and the originality of this. A couple of imperfection by the feet detract slightly. Still a 9. Very, very nice.

I don't like nudes and I don't like inversion, but put them together and you've got a winner! 7

Never have liked these reversed images/ I'm sure many people will though.

Wow what an interesting portrait.

I am [usually] not a fan of this technique but you've used it well as it plays into the composition. Not sure about the fit of title and effect (a slight negative). One of my ribbon picks.

This is what I call a beautiful and eye catching photo. Well done for making it so interesting...

I like the blue color and how it looks. Not sure how it works with Grief, however. would have worked great for high contrast.

Generally I dislike the inverted type shots like this. HOWEVER, this one really appeals to me. ?I guess it's the blue, the wonderful pose and the light on her head. Not sure but I do like this one a lot. I think you did a great job. Just her hand alone with the light/dark areas is a good photo!! Well done, you sold me.

Very cool. I look forward to the explanation of setup on this one. 9.

Why make it negative? Besides a slight green cast the positive looks much better.
