I like this, very moving.

Great black and white photo. Very good composition and use of light.

I LOVE the diagonal composition - her face is a wonderful contoured landscape. The intimacy conveyed by the proximity is incredible. Light and shadow, happiness and sadness. It's all here.

this would be a lot better if we could see the eye
02/12/2004 11:36:44 PM
great lighting and a very poignant image. the nose pin is distracting to me though.
02/12/2004 07:14:14 PM
this is so pretty, she has really smooth skin *envy*

need to see the eye

Very different than all the others I've seen, and well done. The earing/nose earing is a bit distracting here; the focal point should be the tear, but my eyes are drawn to the jewelry. Perhaps the other side of the model would have been a better choice.

Beautiful neatimaging, especially on the tear. Great lighting. The nose stud really ads a tasteful element. Top shot.
02/11/2004 11:08:42 PM
I'm a sucker for a nice B&W. very nice!
02/11/2004 08:30:45 PM
Nice shot. However, the lightiing is a little off and the background would be better if it was solid.
02/11/2004 08:22:33 PM
This is simply amazing, Je n'ai pas le vocabulaire nécessaire pour décrire cette photo.

I would love to know this girl more. Why is she crying?
02/11/2004 06:55:23 PM
My favorite this week... amazing capture... great lighting. Sure to be a ribbon.
02/11/2004 04:53:27 PM
pretty face. i dont really like the lighting but great composition.
02/11/2004 03:26:22 PM
Nice composition, interesting use of lighting
02/11/2004 12:15:14 PM
I like the black and white. I've given it some thought and not sure how the title applies...although I can interpret the photo itself to fit the challenge ok. I don't care for the lighting in this shot...particularly the shadow across the eye and top of the nose. The nose piercing also takes away impact for me. I like the idea, and the creative effort.

A bit too soft for my taste, Neatimage? Great crop, nice line between the corners. Good job.
02/11/2004 11:48:35 AM
Verry beautiful, 10!
02/11/2004 10:52:11 AM
the eye should be lighter, more visible
02/11/2004 10:34:18 AM
The lighting, the softness, the subject. everything conveys that sens of loss. Excellent job.Good luck!

I have tried to get tears before and know how hard it is (they just roll straight off). A bit soft for my tastes, when the brow is sharper it seems?
