Very last minute entry! I thought we had glitter for the fairy dust, but noooo... time to improvise. I ground up a piece of mica instead.

Oops... I blew it. I had this one in and changed my mind 15 seconds before rollover. I should've left it, because without the "attitude," it's just a pretty picture with no story. :-/

I like the entry one better than the alternate. The fairy dust over the apple is what makes it for me.

This is a cute model, she plays the part well. I like the butterfly a added touch. The necklace though is a little out of place but really the colors take some of the eye around it to not mind it as much. Great shot!

Blatant use of cute kids in challenge! :) Very nice shot. Very well set up. I even love the pinky point by your model. :) Excellent choice on the black background as well. Just a very nice shot.

Very nice picture, I love the expression of the face.
The light or focust could be slightly softer, to make it more misterious (IMO)

Certainly has that "Scalver-esque" feel to it...! Perfectly lit... cute young model... magical dust floating in the air. Yep, gotta be Shannon.

Lovely colours and a very nice staged shot. Good sharpness and the butterfly and 'magic dust' are very nice touches

With a butterfly and everything! Quite colorful and cheery, though it won't be after she bites that apple.
