I found this while studying up for the color portrait challenge...wow! It's stunning. What a beautiful image. I wasn't a member during the voting period for this one, but it would have been a 10 from me! :o)

Wonderful eyes! good capture, nice lighting. Maybe a little too much of the shoulder for me but this should do well

Very pretty. Love the tight crop. Colours look very natural. Could use a tiny bit of smoothing around her neck line and shoulder. Well done otherwise.

Not a bad shot at all, but the more I look at it the crop seems off a bit - kinda hard to put my finger on it ...

I like the crop and frame here. Your lighting is superb. 9

Loose the frame, not needed here. Nice cropping and colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2004 10:00:56 PM
Beautiful shot. The skin tones and the captivating eyes are great. The only thing I didn't like, was the border. Seeing her hair between the white line and the edge of the frame is a little distracting. 9

Beaautiful lady, well lit, interesting and creative composition, though I want to see more of her...

...forehead (what did you think I was going to say??)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2004 09:25:04 PM
Lovely, and I have two suggestions: a bit more DOF so her shoulder is in focus, and move that one strand of hair from her right cheek. Otherwise flawless job. Oh...I don't like the white frame the way you did it, but remember, that's just an issuse of taste. I like the white surrounded by solid black. Lovely model and you did her proud!

Hypnotic. . . is all I can say. From the time it started rolling down the screen as it opened, I was caught by her eyes. BOL

lovely color and composition and focus

well done. great expression...eyes are perfect

Beautiful use of cropping, should be close to the ribbons.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2004 03:16:31 PM
Very nice. Would like to see more of her head though. I'm not real fond of the crop. The eyes are great though, and the skin tones too. I think an 8 from me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the composition here. I also like the expression. The only thing I notice is a lot of the foundation makeup shows up around the eyebrows in this one. I'm not sure if you could polish that up in PhotoShop or not... but overall I like the image a lot. Good luck!

very nicely done.

03/15/2004 11:34:09 AM
Great shot. Very clear. I notice a bit of grain on the neck. The hand is a good addition but I wish I see more. One of the best that I've seen so far. More to go.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2004 10:28:12 AM
This is a nice photo which is well executed but with the clarity being so sharp it is almost harsh. I won't take off for it, but my personal preference would have been to see this softer -- but that is a 'personal' opinion. Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2004 10:10:04 AM
Nice shooting. I would of liked more of her hand showing or less. The light is fantastic! Good luck.

Good, tight crop...shows flair & style! 10+
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2004 07:12:33 AM
nice work, but the image is good enough without the border
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2004 05:44:48 AM
Nice lighting, lovely skin tones, attractive portrait. The unusual aspect ratio is challenging and I can't make up my mind about it and maybe the border interferes. never mind, the overall effect is great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2004 05:28:55 AM
Really good, framing, light, make-up, pose, expression, everything just adds together to make a great picture. Doesn't hurt that your model is beautiful either. 10

This is gorgeous! I love the lighting on this shot... and what a beautiful woman!
This is my fave - 10

Really lovely. I like the way you've cropped this and the inclusion of the one shoulder.
