I'm not sure I like the faded, selective color here. Would like to see it in full color.

This is just a question...does this person always wear that much eye make-up when they are tree doctoring? I come from a family of orchard owners and I've never seen a tree doctor wear any make-up or even have their clothes that clean. I think your downfall with me, is that I have experience and first-hand knowledge and memories to pull from so this shot does not communicate to me what my memories flash before my eyes. That being said, the profile is nice. The focus is inspired. I have a little problem with all of the pink, but that is where art comes in.

All signs point to IR on this one. But the fact that you've got me second guessing is a really good thing. I'm curious to see who took this shot.

Either this photos contrast is off or it was really bright, your subjest in the photo looks very pail and gray in contrast.

Wow. Interesting use of color. You definitely met the challenge criteria, but I needed to be helped by the title. I like the tight cropping.

Cool shot, although given the zombie-like skin color paired with the extreme dark eye makeup, I'd say the woman needs the doctor--not the tree :-). First zombie I've ever seen in pink. Seriously, I like this shot a lot. 8
