Parabéns, a foto está bem ajustada ao tema.
O olhar perdido da modelo e as pessoas ao redor em movimento passaram a sensação pretendida.
Não votei, mas caso votasse seria 10.

Boy, I relate to first and 2nd place for sure! Yes, high school is hell for many , makes me tear up to look at this. My daughter is in her last year (thank god) and hoping college will be a much kinder place.
Great job on this! Congrats!

Nice shot. I was thinking of doing something like this, probably in an airport terminal or mall, but never got it done. I like the introspective stare, hiding under a hoodie, and of course the steady image vs the blurred passers by.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2007 08:07:26 PM
nice shot, great focus on the subject
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2007 05:14:52 PM
You capture the theme perfectly with your photo. Nice use of shutter speed to create the scene.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2007 04:38:14 PM
Nice work. Love the mood of the image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2007 01:14:40 PM
Great dramatization! You can feel her loneliness! Nice job! This gets a 9 from me.

perfect
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2007 10:03:18 AM
Very cool. Compelling, and very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/04/2007 03:20:05 AM
great color, enjoying the pastel hues. the slow shutterspeed really sets the aloneness in motion.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/03/2007 06:50:12 PM
really ccol...hope this ribbons!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/03/2007 10:23:34 AM
Nice concept and well delivered. Awesome!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/03/2007 07:57:32 AM
The woman in pink looks a little too happy, but otherwise a fantastic photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/02/2007 09:44:30 PM
Very nice. I just got through recommending to the other person that entered one like this to try looking down on the subject. A little more contrast and more interesting background might help this shot. It conveys the challenge very well. Nice job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/02/2007 01:03:43 PM
Nicely done 8

Great take on the challenge. One of the few that got it IMO. Great movement and composition. 10

Nice! eye contact would have made a huge difference here. I still like it. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/30/2007 08:16:50 AM
This has feeling to it. You help the audience connect with the person.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/30/2007 03:10:54 AM
Good idea, great lighting and execution.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/30/2007 02:47:01 AM
Your model must have had a tough time standing steady! nice capture
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Good capture of the daydreamer amongst the hustle and bustle. 6
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2007 05:27:53 PM
Perfect shot I think – really conveys that feeling of being alone…
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2007 05:24:30 PM
Yep. That's what High School was like! Great vantage point, and good use of motion blur to create the impression of being alone.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2007 04:11:14 PM
Excellent example of 'Alone in a Crowd'
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2007 01:19:13 PM
Excellent interpretation and execution! 9

you win - I don't vote these any more, but after looking through the entries you're the best. Just thought I'd let you know. :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2007 09:46:03 AM
good concept, but not long enough shutterspeed for me. now the traces of people are distracting. colors are nice, square crop works well here, but would like subject a bit more top and right, to get rid of distracting top right wall.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2007 09:44:38 AM
This one is very good. It shows how life really does feel to most of us.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2007 09:19:29 AM
Unique POV and excellent photo for this challenge. Her expression and her being withdrawn in her hood is perfect for conveying a kid who doesn't feel she's part of what's happening around her.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2007 06:52:15 AM
Well composed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2007 03:43:25 AM
Excellent composition
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2007 11:40:29 PM
A great use of shutter drag to blur the moving subjects here. Really does give me the feeling of her being alone in that crowd. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2007 10:04:04 PM
Very nice!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2007 09:19:51 PM
Nice concept, although I think the pink and the brightness of the photo takes away from the isolation, they are normally more happy things. The execution and quality of the photo are excellent however, the subject is sharp as a tack. Good job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2007 08:53:49 PM
Very nicely done! Truely portrays the choas and isolation!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2007 07:50:42 PM
Good photo for the subject. Would've loved to see better contrast between the subject's clothing and surroundings but good photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2007 12:10:20 PM
very good portrayal of loneliness! I love the clarity of the girl, I can read everything!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2007 11:10:21 AM
Great shot. WOW, another one like this, I will have to give another 10.

10/10. Love this one, tags at my emotions.

exactly what the challenge should be about!

BEST one I've seen for conveying the topic. Very well done and I hope it ribbons.
