I love it! I love the way you chose the colors and they way you used the light. The face at the top kind of lost in background gives it a magicla effect. Great job!

It reminds me a little bit about a pic that I took in India... check out the link.. (I also have it on my portfolio)

This photo is amazing. I must say,, if it is not too obvious, I saw the person first in the back round they have such an amazing expression...if you had just that expression it still be just as great, it really wants me to know who that person is. lol Great job!

Excellent idea, well executed, and a great shot, too. Congrats on the ribbon - you definitely deserved it for both the photography, the creativity, and all the work researching then writing the information on the hands and feet!

Nicely executed. Good balance of lights and darks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/11/2007 01:28:36 PM
that had to tickle :) great job, this has to be top 10. in my opinion, should ribbon. VERY well done, especially for basic editing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/10/2007 11:09:54 AM
Very cool idea, really love it !
Nice composition too. The simetry between feet and hands under the head looks quiet good. And eyecatching gaze, by the way.
My only regret goes to light... A better setup should have made the feet and hands sharper and the head a bit darker... Maybe...

Oh, and does this all mean anything, or is it just invented in order to shoot ?

cool,dark mysterious!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/08/2007 04:26:04 PM
This must have taken quite a while to draw, cool though. I like how the girl's head is less lit then the feet and hands, and I wonder whether her head was needed at all? The lighting is a tad harsh in some spots but overall pretty good. good choice of subjeects.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/08/2007 11:48:41 AM
Very Creative. Though, either accentuating the face or completely excluding it would've made the photo bolder and crisper. Great job overall!

03/07/2007 11:15:33 PM
I like the photo, but put off by lack of accuracy of zones or meridians. Love the concept, especially the background facial expression
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2007 10:40:49 PM
Nice photo, and you get extra points for effort you put into this. :)

03/07/2007 09:34:39 PM
I really like this. It has such an eerie feel to it. Like all the libs are floating seperately.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/07/2007 06:28:41 PM
Very clever, nicely balanced and great focus. I previewed the thumbnails before voting and this one remains my favorite. 10

9 to me and this is a great low key too by using the shadows to highlite the acupuncture zones. I will add to my favorite for future ref.

I think this picture could work even without the creepy face in there. Nice mapping out of all the areas and stuff.
