This really is an outstanding shot. Considering the number and strength of the entries, not a bad showing but, I'm really surprised you didn't finish higher.

Anyway, I really enjoyed this photo.

5.8 is silly, but you got lots of people talking to you - I guess that's something?

You already know I love it! I actually think I like the outtake better though! NOW I decide. :-p

I guess artful isn't what does well around here. UGH I liked it.

Love the soft focus and upside down composition, and the colors are wonderful, but your expression and eyes make the shot, as they reveal a bit of your personality, or at least appear to. 10

lovely. you almost fade into abstraction, though some sentimental thought keeps you in this world.

This is a really interesting angle. I like the colors here but wish you hadn't cropped the picture right through your eye. Just my opinion, BB

Unique. Killer eyes, I wish I would see both of them and I also wish you'd flip it... or not flip it in this case :) Nice softness, colors lighting. Nice focusing on the eye. Good photo overall :)

love the fact your trying something different to the straight on aproach, the eyes are sharp, but I wish there was more detail in the face than the hair behind, this somewhat distracts me, but I really like the novel approach!

Your eyes. So pretty. Love the lavender. This is uber arty.

Very nicely done. You've done such a great job of putting emphasis on your eye that the rest of the shot almost acts as a frame for it. Great shot!

nice soft composition, I like the colors. Not sure about the crop though

This is so off...

Very different and very creative. I don't know how will it score but it surely is on my list of top photos. Love the way colors blend into each other. Goodluck.10.

A little too soft for my taste
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 06:03:18 PM
the softness really works so well here - the soft pastel colors and the sloping lines, creating a cool S-curve to draw our attention to that killer eye
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 05:03:22 PM
Lovely soft effect. I like how the photo is inverted and the nice color palette.

Really sweet take on your SP. I like the composition and soft focus, and the colors really make it pop. Nice work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful woman, but face cutoff and too obscured by blur and being upside down. The overall presentation is not to my liking but I'm guessing some outtakes would be. Best of luck though.

Too soft

Very beautiful. Hope you get top three with this.

Chele? Simply stunnnig... The softness, colors, and unusual POV/composition really make this stand out.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 08:09:56 AM
Thank you Kate Bush!
12/05/2007 06:41:15 AM
Nice colors and composition. I'd have preferred it a little sharper or less neatimage/noise ninja, especially the eye.
