The number of comments my daughter receives about her wild and crazy curly hair is unreal. I've been wanting to photograph her curls for awhile and then the "hair" challenge came along to motivate me. Took me a couple of times to figure out a decent depth of field and I still should have gone deeper.

OH PLEASE, considering some of the things that managed to get to the top ten, this deserved a MUCH better score! :( Too bad... It's so beautiful!

I wish the focus would have been on the isolated ringlet on the forehead. I think the impact would have been greater.

Nice attention to detail. Just a bit distracted by the reflection in the eye, though. But still very nice.

Nice close up, although the reflection in the eye was a bit distracting.

Absolutely lovely! Beautiful... I love the colors - the coppery curls against the green. Your composition is wonderful, and the shallow DOF really adds to this picture. I love it! The only thing I might suggest is brightening it up a tad - there is nothing really white in this picture, which would help balance things a bit... so perhaps by adjusting the cuves in Photoshop you could get the highlights white. But I'm just being picky! A very sweet shot!

Nicely done. Color seems a bit flat IMHO.

I like this very much. If it had been mine, I would have tweaked it, given you could use expert editing. I guess I'm not a purist. ;~D
