Cool. Looks like you created the background with a flashlight? Very similar in effect to some of my luxagraphic work (which will be slowly posted here). Keep it up.

Amazing work with light!! Very well done - I'd have never guessed this was done entirely with a flashlight. Quite inspiring, too!

Very clever entry, congratulations on winning the yellow ribbon!

Congrats on the yellow with this excellent shot.

Indeed, well done. An inspiring way to shoot the models. Where there's a will, there's a way. Your shot should be an inspiration to all of those out there with no 5D, no studio, no studio lights etc. At the end of the day, brilliance can shine through regardless. An artist is not limited by her/his tools. Happy Holidays when shortly they come by.

Absolutely love that backround, nice work and frankly think it´s better than both my shot and the red ribbon winner, think the order of us should have been reversed :) Congrats!

I love the lighting in the background...did you use flashlights?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2006 07:26:00 PM
The background is great on this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2006 05:43:12 PM
really cool background but the models aren't really interesting...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/10/2006 03:33:30 PM
Good poses, lighting. Background is slightly distracting, but also striking, and probably would be better if it were softer, main subjects are strong enough to carry through.

wow...that's an interesting background...a great image for the challenge

Another photo that is done well. The light in the back has a smugged feeling but it come off well.

Like the background. Light painting?

12/07/2006 12:06:06 PM
Gave this a 9. There's another similar concept in the challenge, but at least is not a Martini

How in the WORLD did you do that! And how in the World will this not receive a ribbon! Truly aMAZING special effects!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2006 08:48:24 AM
I really like the lighting technique you pulled off here. A real good concept and well executed. I'm curious to see how it scores. I didn't pick it as one of the ribbon contenders since there were several I liked a little better but a friend of mine thinks you'll ribbon. Now I'm curious. Good luck!

12/05/2006 03:20:59 AM
Got the expressions spot on. This could well be a promotional poster especially with that background.
