You look hot. I am sure you would not have to cook these vegetables for eating.

I'm reminded of the angry/crazy botanist lady from the Batman movie. Nice change from the norm.

escapetooz! You had some fun with this shot, didn't you? Excelent creativity, perfect lighting, and as always great focus! Careful with those habanero's.

Nice use of vegetables AND a fruit. solid lighting, and sharp focus. the reds seemed to get a little oversaturated in parts of the lipstick, so they lose their texture a bit, but that's minor. a great entry, should score well with the DP crowd.

One of my favorites. I love the colors, especially her lipstick.

Escapetooz?? Of course it is. I really love your work, you always have great ideas, and this shot is no different. I really like your setup and idea, your expression is priceless, great use of vegetables, and you have incredibly beautiful lips I might add. Only thing IMO is the lighting seems a bit off, it might just be due to the window lighting, but it seems as if the left side of your stomach almost seems blown a bit. Other than that its a great piece of work. Nice job. 8

That looks like an almost patented background color change technique to me, but I don't recognize the model... Disappointment for me is that the fruit (at least the one in her hands) appears to be slightly blurred.

clever idea.

escape from Hollywood? Hot hot. Love the cabbage :) but the old school dress you were wearing in another series (self portrait?) was better ;) I would have used a tighter crop here. Everything under the your..cabbage seems to be out of focus or something. Also there's nothing going on there and it distracts me from your face where all the veggie action is. Great lighting!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Technically this is well shot. Great lighting, great studio setup, and great model - but this random collection of fruit and veg thrown on the model just doesn't sit right with me, sorry to be vague but I can't put my finger on it.

I'll give it a (5) for now, but I may come back and re-visit this one.

Good luck.

I LOVE the creativity in this one!! This one really stands out from the pack. Adorned in nothing but vegetables and sprouting 'yellow/orange' horns on her head she appears as a nature spirit - either a female version of Pan or a Nature nymph whose realm lies in the planting and harvesting of vegetables. Lighting is spot on with hightlights & shadows perfect. The light green background a very subtle nod to the greens of nature - had it been a white or black background it would not have complimented the photo composition so well. The warm glow surrounding your nature nymph is also a perfect compliment because not only does it illuminate her in a soft glow but the glow helps invoke the idea the she is a magical creature. Wonderful job bumping you up to a 9.

Monica, This is very nice use of colors that you are wearing. I also like what you did with the matching background.

Very cool. I wish I could get my wife to wear cabage like that. 9

You are amazing. Nobody else would come up with a cabbage bra! I think I'd not have had anything in your hair and just left it with the green/purple theme.
