Excellent portrait shot. Hope you got a shot without the sprinkles :)
The model is golden age beautiful and the technicals ,lighting and PP are excellent. The sprinkles add some fun to it, but I agree that red lips, not too highly saturated would've been perfect.

This was a great one, although a similar one has been done before (but what is original anymore?). I gave it an 8 and think it quite deserves top 5.

an absolute winner. even without the color, it's just flawless. excellent control of DOF, the composition is awesome, and her eyes are gorgeous! This is my 5000th vote here at DPC, and I give this one a 10.

Great clarity. I like that you chose to focus in on her near eye. Well done.

I think the light and exposure is perfect. Wonderful DOF. Not sure that the candy was the way to go. I'd love to have seen shiny red lips, but that's just me. 8

Creative idea, well executed = high quality photography. The high key concept is fit and proper. Im not sure about the focus area. Perhaps it would have been even better, with the mouth completely in focus? But this is nagging (is it the correct word?) on a very high level. Enviably great shot, thanks for sharing and good luck in the challenge! - 9

Lovely image. Beautiful pose, wonderful, perfect expression, natural looking eyes, and the happy surprise of the candy lips! Not overdone at all, as it so easily could have been.

I get a strange feeling from this, but like it...I guess? It does have an impact.

I love the "high key" effect you went for, it enhances the areas left in color. I personally dont like the sprinkles, red lipstick would have been better for me, but sometimes I'm too safe I guess :P. Execusion wise, you did a great job ;), 8

I really like this image. I think simple red lips might have been just as effective. High marks from me.
