At the risk of being slaughtered by adoring idnic fans, I have to be honest. This photo makes you look like you have a bubble head.

I've seen other photos of you, so I know you don't have a bubble head. Like a couple others pointed out, it most likely has a lot to do with the lens/angle.

It could also be a bit of an illusion since you are so tiny at the bottom and at the top there's your head, your hair, and your hands over your chest in the long black gloves. You're also shrugging a little. The image looks very top heavy, which could be creating an unnatural distortion for some of us.

do you realize you're sandwiched between two bald guys with big beards? I'm not sure what that means...

They missed the boat on this one. A combination of talent and creativity.

Sorry, Cindi. No clue on this result.

Ouch. :(

Well it's not a total loss. :D

Yeah I am scratching my head on this one...

What's with that DPC?!!!

Ok, maybe just me here but this is not even close to where I think this should have placed. No its not just the skin. Great lighting, excellent smiling pose, and gives that classy WWII pinup look. ARG to the votes on this one. And additionally being relatively new here I didn't know who this was and now to find out this is the mother of a 15 year old??? Ok people seriously for those of you who knew that and voted less than an 8 shame on you. This is not the body of someone capable of having a 15 year old, and she has lighting skills to BOOT!

Great shot sorry the voters don't agree with me.

I like your smile here, it's kind of a half smile, half smirk. Of course the shoes totally accent the rest of your "clothing", lol, and your gloves. Yeah, it's all good. BB

tease...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/09/2007 01:52:44 PM
Very nice. One thing bothered me in this photo is your position on the frame. For my taste only, if you would stand either in the middle or on the right side instead of left... I would love it more. As is very nice anyway :)

OK, this explains the number of views. :-) Damn, you're in great shape. All you need now is a pearl ankle bracelet and you're all set.

A little lower placement of the camera might have created a little better perspective (IMO). Good lighting.7.

Flawless in every way. And I promise not to deduct jealous points for being so teeny tiny and perfectly shaped :)

You look cold. I like how there is zero background seams.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 07:14:39 AM
Did you place the camera higher than eye level and shoot from the top down with a wide angle? The head seems out of proportion with the body and is likely due to the camera position.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 05:33:59 AM
It is truly rare to be blessed with beauty, talent, and creativity.

Here is a perfect 10 in all three categories.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Well... I don't see anything else in this challenge that even comes close to beating this. So here's an early congrats on your blue. ;-)
