Just want you to know this is one of my top three picks for this challenge. Content and quality are excellent, the model's expression is great and you have again proven the uses of duct tape are unlimited.

This is one of a number of "taped mouth" entries, but my fave of the lot. Not very original but I love the manic look.

Excellent photo. It has that 'kosmikkreeper-style' to it, which means it will probably place :) - 10

probably the best of the "Tape over mouth" photos I have voted on so far.. Nice lighting, good expression on models face.. Makes a dull uninspired idea work... As a comparison, I voted the others like this 4, this gets an 8.. Highest score I have given so far today.. well done... marksimms

the tape on the mouth concept got a lot of use in this challenge.. the thing about this shot is the use of light.. it's great.. the drama in the subjects face is good, but hard to take serious.. black and white was a must.. 7 for execution and 1 for origonality..

Well, it certainly makes for a good stock photo where everything needs to be painfully spelled out for the viewer! ;) Nice composition and varied/multiple light sources. Lots of other entries with same basic idea, but yours was done with a bit more care and technical ability.

excellent technique poor subject
03/06/2004 12:08:45 AM
Well done... good expression.

:O scary i grant this image a 8

wonderful expression! Great composition and tones.

i love this shot. great expression, nice harsh lighting. i can really feel her stress from being forced into silence.

I think I would have liked this better without the writing on the tape. Make me think! This is a great idea with a great model, well executed. Her eyes tell me all I need to know.

finally someone who took one of a lady with ducktape over her mouth that says silence! you are my god and all that is holy to me.
03/04/2004 10:33:15 AM
freaky, kind of ironic

I like the way the lighting adds to the image. The writing on the tape is a bit much. Great expression
03/03/2004 09:08:45 AM
Just brilliant! A good idea and well pulled off, this is my favourite of all the challenge photos for "silence" (10).
03/03/2004 05:38:50 AM
I had this idea also with my girlfriend but changed it because the pic itself doesn´t give me the feeling of silence.
But you did the photo really good
03/03/2004 02:30:27 AM
Beautiful shot. The expression on the (lovely) model's face really makes this one owrk for me.
03/03/2004 02:05:03 AM
much too literal...
03/03/2004 01:14:06 AM
lol....great humor!
03/03/2004 12:39:21 AM
Ahhh! Awesome and a little creepy- great job!
03/03/2004 12:36:44 AM
I like this, but it would have been much better without the need to literally spell out silence! Good acting.
