wow, this is much more interesting than the ribbon winners AND meets the challenge better. And what are with those 4's and below??

This got a ten from me.
The lighting here is absolutely perfect, whatever you did.
And every single shadow and light spot is just.. Perfectly placed. Fantastic use of black and white. This just knocks my socks off. It's perfect.
=)) Congrats on the high score. This is a beautiful image.

This is absolutely fantastic!!! Precious!
Thank you!

WOW 4th place!!! I never thought I would score so high! Thank you to every one who said such nice things about my photo and gave it such great scores!

Funny thing is, the parents didn't choose this one...clients never cease to amaze me.

I'm not sure why the non-camera users voted only a 5.3. Anyone have any thoughts on that?

Thank you again everyone -- I'm so excited!!!!
