Wow! Thanks for all the comments. I did not expect this to do this well especially after seeing all the other entries. DPCers are so creative and inspirational. I really had fun and felt really good working on this image too.

This is actually a single capture image using mostly advance editing rules. I knew from the start that I wanted to enter something monochromatic. Keeping the image still photographic in nature is also my biggest concern. I wish I could also take credit for this amazing creation but I merely took a photograph and gave it a little treatment here and there. This is a mannequin dressed up like a futuristic female android in one of clothing shops here in Los Angeles. Credit for creativity goes to the designer and their high fashion sense.

Thanks again for all the nice and constructive comments! I cannot be any happier with this red ribbon for this challenge! :) :) :)

and she told me I was the only one in her life . . .lol

Very impressive picture, great lighting, perhaps a little too central? and her head dress looks a bit chopped off.

But that said this should do very well

I shudder to think what some of the attachments are for. :( Nice smooth tones and subtle colouring.

Very nice 10 from me.

Nicely Cyborg-ish, lovely levels, smooth as porcelain. Well done! I like the blue tone shading almost to a perfect white. Excellent work! Most professional

Hologram? Android? Cool title, can't wait for these to come out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the color of the background and the costume. Really like the focus on this picture, sharp yet soft. Great photo, hope to see it in the top 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/02/2007 06:01:27 PM
Great title and visual. The fans don't go well in the design. Could be that they just don't match the crispness of everything else.

Just bumped this up to make it one of my three 10's a great take on the challenge and perfectly executed!

Interesting idea, but for me, just doesn't give me a strong feeling of sci-fi as it does some high fashion experiment.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/01/2007 03:51:13 PM
8, a very crisp image that could come fro a sci-fi movie like the 5th Element or something. I just find it a little bit flat

A superb update of robot Maria from Metropolis. A 9 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Really, really well-done technically. It doesn't "resonate" with me emotionally as well as a couple other entries, but it's exceptionally nice regardless. I'm eager to see how much of this image is composited. Feel free to PM me, I am done with voting. Good luck!

Love the title!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very sci-fi looking. Choice of tones enhances that effect. If this is a photograph you did a hell of an editing job as it looks like a ray-tracing or other computer generated image. Would have more impact if she were offset rather than centered.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/29/2007 05:01:25 PM
Nice composition - unusual with that huge overhead shape. Nice detail in the strange accessories and nice lack of detail in the skin. Good choice of blue toning.

Brilliantly put together and 10.

I, personally would have no use for her, but i'd like to be put on the waiting list for an iBoyfriend? Thanks! Very nice shot, and the chrome feel is sweet.
