I was trying out some new lighting techniques. This isn't even one I planned on entering, until I opened it. I love how calm and quiet it seems.

Wow!!! 12th place! Thank you so much everyone! :)

Excellent! a most classic shot. The pose is perfect, the lighting , PP, the elbow is just a bit hot, otherwise it's all perfect.

Congrats on your 12th place Lorrie.
I had this as one of my top 5 pics. Still do.

wonderful, 12th place is great but this should have been higher. Lighting pose, everything is spot on. I love it.

Simple, serene, and beautiful. Great colors, wonderful pose.. this is a super portrait.

Nice composition; really comes across as a brief moment when you couldn't quite forget everything you should be doing right then.
11/11/2006 10:13:10 PM
Jeepers Lorrie this is an extra-fabulous photo, lighting, pose, comp, bg, mood, tone ... everything! One of my tops this time around.

lovely lighting and pose. maybe I'd place you a bit more to the left.
11/08/2006 11:00:25 PM
Really nice lighting and color. Very expressive/moody photo. Great work.
11/08/2006 02:55:19 PM
I like the soft, warm colors and the contemplative look. Good shot.
11/08/2006 12:05:21 PM
Mmmm. I need a couple of those today! Nice portrait. Great emotion. A slight over to the left would improve comp IMHO though. Still one of my favs so far.
11/07/2006 08:32:00 PM
Beautiful shot. Perfect colors, and I love the tatoo.
11/07/2006 07:49:32 PM
Wondeful lighting. Great color. I like the pose, but it does not seem to have context except with the title. Lovely model.
11/07/2006 02:02:22 PM
grea shot, love the background colour, it really enhances your hair and pulls it all together
11/07/2006 04:46:04 AM

Ooo this is cool
11/05/2006 02:12:19 AM
background complements well. love the colors and the emotion, but I felt the right quarter of the image was redundant and could be cropped out, in order to place your eye on the line of the thirds, rather than dead center where it is now.
11/05/2006 02:12:17 AM
Lovely. I love the soft look to this.
11/05/2006 12:37:25 AM
Well done.
