Taken with minimal barn light (a real barn....the one
with the neigh's and the moo's), just a small amount coming through the cracks in the wood. I told her not to move and she did a great job and staying quite and still. I love the dirty face and soulful look.

Sorry about the DQ but still a beautiful shot, I simply love it and am adding it to my favorites.

So beautiful. I bet it would have been top 3 if it weren't for the DQ. Excellent capture.

I love this shot! Great job!! It's going to my favorites.

Disqualified or not, this is a wonderful capture. The use of natural lighting is perfect, and the compositon outstanding. Great model, too. The strand of hair across the face is genius!

a bit too bright to be low key, but an excellent portrait, good DOF, wonderful sharpness of her eyes and hair in front. bumping up

This is a beautiful image, however the eyes look very edited and it looks like the low key was edited in instead of shot as. I am voting based on rules, so I give it a 9.

Her eyes are so piercing!
02/28/2007 01:43:43 PM
how pretty! Very good lighting! - Good luck! - one of my favorites!

Fantastic photo. The only objection would be that I would've liked her face to be very slightly more in focus, but that's just in my opinion.

Exceptional BW conversion... Many people do not know how to convert and edit for BW, but you nailed it perfectly. Very nice work, with emphasis on the eyes. The shallow DOF helps to draw my attention to her eyes, which are the best part of the image. The dirt smudges help to add character. 10 from me, and one of my favorites in the challenge. I hope to see this ribbon!
