urrrrkkk worked more on this shot and another more than any other shot before.

Drove me crazy and I never want to work on my lips again LOL

There has got to be an easier way than the way i did it.

and pearls have goto to be up there with diamonds to photograph, never again!


Post Challenge

The last two comments hit it on the head as to what I was trying to do.

Rocky Horry Picture Show, with a dash of Alfred Hitchcock with a bit of 'Nuho, you did not go there!"

Thank you for the PH ribbon, it was up on my page as soon as rollover happened, i was so honoured!


I screwed up beyond belief on this one.,

I had no idea that After a challenge had ended that you could still be asked for validation. So me being me, dumped the folder that morning. Funny thing is, I have the photos from before and after this shot, just not this shot. I could have cried.

I did inform PostHumous immediatly that I had to give my ribbon back to him, but he says that these ribbons stay with you till the grave.

My own fault totally adn trust me, not one I will repeat

What a shame. Guess there are some nerds out there requesting validations after the challenge even you were not close to to the top 5 (which get validated).

IMHO, it has a bit too much contrast, and that makes the mouth look too "meaty" (sounds weird, I know). I just dont find it very appealing.

I like the composition but I also think the lighting is too harsh and bland.

I looked at this for about 4 minutes trying to think of what to say.
