I am so happy this finished so strong. I think your score deserves to be much higher than 6.25, but a top 20 finish is nice! I love this photo so much!

Another incredibly beautiful picture. I love the colors, contrast and light. The line of the corner of the wall is a little distracting to me, but I'm rating this a 10 anyway.

"Painterly" finish works really well with this composition.

lovely

I'm not exactly sure how it meets the chalenge, but I have an idea. In any case, it is such a supurb portrait, I must score it highly! I love the softness, and the vintage clothing. The only way I could think to make it better would've been to have an older looking piano to keep with the old feel. Nice job.

Lovely composition! Looks like a painting.

Excellent concept and nicely composed. It has a strong feeling of a painting. Lighting is interesting. The use of slightly muted pastel colors is a strength. Nicely captured.

The corner edge in the uppper right is a distraction. Noise reduction is overused and very noticable but does adds to the surrealistic feeling of this image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/12/2007 01:22:28 PM
Wow! You took a hard concept to convey in any other way besides some sort of clock and pulled it off magnificently! This is timeless beauty! Awesome photo! 9

Wow... love the lighting, pose, expression, softer focus, everything... It just doesn't really say "Time" to me though (I tried, cause I really like the pic otherwise)
