The arse is blown out a bit, but hey, do I blame my monitor? Nice shot.

oh dude! Probably the worst title ever
its a great photo and it is blown out and my monitor is calibrated
but the blown out shit doesnt matter its cool as it is
probably would have scored higher without the title

It's a damn shame that you have to qualify your entry with a title like that isn't it?

Great shot, wonderful pinup style. Really lovely all around.

I imagine that title is getting you more feedback than the photo. :P

It's a very well done image with lighting, clarity, and composition. Personally I think it's a bit of a "sex sells" kind of shot, but hey, I'm sure the views are racking up. :D

Good luck with the multitude of monitors.

Great photo: well composed, lit, shot and processed ...

Not so great title. Give your audience more credit. And don't talk down to them. If they have the ability to calibrate, they have. And if they don't, you're likely to make them mad by telling them it's their fault. In neither case will your title improve the votes you get. JMHO.

what an adorable classic shot. I wish there was deeper contrast to bring out her features in the middle more. great shot

Great shot. Hate the title. "Dolly Diamonds in High Key" would have probably sufficed.

Absolutely love this! One of the best of the challenge so far. Will add to favorites to revisit and study your excellent composition.

uhm, it does look blown out, and it's not my monitor.. the floor isn't bad that it is, but the shoes could've been a tad more darker.

lovely setting!

I checked - I can see the difference between the first and the second white square below :-) Still looks too hot on her heels. It also looks very hot right in the middle, but that's a different hot...

Is this a painted-on suit? Very nice idea!
08/03/2007 01:25:14 AM
Works for me.

50s look very well achieved through good pose, expression and props. very much dislike the vignetting, could also be less softened
08/01/2007 11:44:05 PM
I like the image. Shame you have to put the disclaimer. Don't like the vignette in white. it isn't needed and added nothing to your photo. It did however detract from it and bring my vote to a 6.
08/01/2007 11:40:22 PM
Nice image, but it's blown out, check your levels .........
08/01/2007 10:41:48 AM

No need for the long explanation - this is terrific. VERY Betty Page-esque. Great use of red. Well done.

Titles are poor places to explain your photo.

Really like it. Good luck with the voters taking your advice :-)
