I love your work. Everything about this shot is typically excellent, but what really makes it work for me is seeing that laundry basket peeking around the corner in the background. Just the perfect detail.

SO nice; so clear with detail (the iron) and so nicely fuzzy to create a great milky white creaminess;I love the shirt open and the provocative nature but its really quite innocent and serious; great shot.

This is great photography and one of my very favorites in this challenge! Congrats on the high placing, but not high enough in my book

Absolutely love this. Would've loved to see it place in the top10, at least! Still, top15 is good though, in a Free Study :)

This was my favorite in the challenge easy. I've been meaning to add you to my favorite photographers list for some time now. I am always impressed with your work, the thought process, the thoughtless process, the final products, and the variety. Sad that I took so long. I've been lazy. I will study more of your work at a later time when I feel I can truly appreciate it.

Congratulations on the top 20 and a PB. So simple, so creative. Well done, Svetlana!! :)

You really work magic. How can someone ironing be so captivating?! Well The Potato Peeler is also captivating. It seems the subject hardly matters, it's all in the presentation and the light. Congratulation on another outstanding image.

P.S. I like this much better than the other, uncropped, version in your portfolio.

I was pretty sure this was you - best in the challenge from my viewpoint just for the subtle creative behind it. I love your work -

Weren't you in a car wreck and really hurt? I was surprised to see this - but I may have you confused... happens when you get old! :-)

This is awesome! This proves 2 things: 1, you just can not TAKE a bad picture. You probably look like that the minute you wake up in the morning too. Amazing :) and 2, a talented photographer can turn the simplest scene into extraordinary art! I'm so impressed! Congratulations on such a great finish!

This is positively stunning. Everything about this is perfect, the light, the composition, the background wall, the elements at viewer right, the story, the beautiful girl. This is truly gorgeous.

Right then, joke's on me as I now have to plough through 564 images and bump them all (yes, all of them) up. There'll be a third run through for fine tuning. It's day two three four now and I'm running late, sorry.

Great shot. Nice soft lighting and color. Quite emotive even though she's only ironing.

This looks like a Vermeer - skillfully executed update of a classic. I like how it combines the mundane and the sensual.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/02/2007 09:31:21 AM
My choice for the Blue - a strong sense of narrative, the subdued colour palette really lends itself to the 'story', perfect composition.

Very nice shot Svetlana. You have my vote as the most artistic person on DPC. This shot looks pretty good concerning the noise. I really don't see any. Did you find out what was wrong with your camera?
