A very short session (too tired) and I feel totally rusted using Photoshop , so I don't expect much.

The thing I see here is an incredibly pureness of spirit, Mambe. I loved it during the challenge - love it even moreso knowing it's you. Thank you for giving us this beautiful glimpse of you!

Very cool photo, nice detail. Almost a little high-key. This should score well. BB

Clean, nice pastel colors. Good positioning in the frame. I think overall good photo. I wonder how would it look if face had a bit more contrast!

My dear Mambe, you blow me away with your wonderful self portraits! The natural beauty you posses shines through in this image and the 'technicals' are spot on. I like your placement in the rule of thirds and the use of all white accept the scarf is excellent. Mambe, I admire you for entering this challenge, it's certainly something I could never do. I hope to see you on the front page with this shot as it's one of my favourite in the challenge! My love and {{HUGS}} to you x

Nice and simple... I'm finding I like these better than the superposed complex ones. Great balance. 8

I really like high key images, well done, the colour of the scarf is perfect to off set your face, nicely done.

Great processing. Like the way colors pop out. Goodluck.8.

Nice image, although I'm not quite sure I understand how the caption applies in this case.

Very nice

To me the lighting is a little to bright on your face. Washed out looking. But if that was corrected, I think this photo would be great!

Lovely! A little over-washed out, but still lovely.

Ohhhhh this is BEAUTIFUL!! I love high key photos, and this one is so amazing without even a trace of anything being blown out. This is one of my favorites, and I'm giving this a perfect 10

I really like your composition and the high key look to it. Very nicely lit and you have no blown out spots with how high key it is. Great work.

HIiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiikey. Nice use of the color of the scarf to offset.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 04:49:54 AM
nice position and colors. I would say a bit too bright (IMHO)

appears a little bit flat and missing some contrast
