shot this about 2 hours before the deadline - seems to be a trend with me lately. at least i'm posting this one up with more than a minute to spare...

i took about 20 pics in the freezing cold and this one seemed to carry the title the best. went into photoshop, tweaked the color and used a bit of the old gaussian blur on her to get the ethereal, ghost-like feeling.

The textures here make such a surreal mood - good job, very unique image of a statue.

Canadian content? I like the background in this picture.

nice subject for the book title, it suits well. I think the shadows would look better if they were a little lighter, and I would prefer the shot without the head cropped off.

I like the placement, the hard shaddow doesn't help

I like the composition, tones, and soft look you've acheived here. My only small suggestion is it would be nice to have a little more shadow detail, though it would be important to also not overexpose the wall.

Just my opinion, I find the offset to the left a bit distracting

the shot is out of focus and makes it hard to look at for too long. the composition is good, nice use of the thirds rule.

Her head is cropped a bit too tight here. The shot has a dark feel ghost like. Not bad.

Harsh shadows, under exposure, and in my opinion poor use of a fog filter.

would like to see the top of the girl's head and the rest of her arm.
