Thanks for the nice votes. I used my wide angle at 15mm and the model was about 6 inches in front of a 600w Softbox. You can see my camera which I handheld right in front of her in her eye reflection.

Here is an outtake..It was a little too creepy I think, plus I obviously edited over the top since I knew I wouldn't be entering it..

I usually use my 50mm 1.8 for headshots or close portraits, so this was fun and a nice silly change.

Incredible composition and exceptional technical quality. Simply amazing portrait. Should be a ribbon contender if voters don't nit pick it for a solid white background.

Excellent shot. Did you use a flash or did you just overexpose in daylight? The only thing that bothers me is the reflections in the eyes. 7

Too cool for words...the lighting and effects are superb...ok, I found the words!

Wow! That's all I can say!

I love the crispness of the shot, the whimsical expression, the way the wider-than-the-portrait-norm angle emphasizes the humor of the shot, the detail in the hair and eyes, the clever title... I am very tight-fisted with the 10's, but you got it here! I love it!

If anyone votes you down because the subject isn't totally white, I'll hunt them down for you. =)

Edit: Oops - had to come back and mark as favorite!

Great sharpness but the refelction in th eyes distracts, also it seems a little too imposing.
