Hi greeings from CC, I think this photo has an emotive, eerieness going for it, while it is not the kind of shot most would hang on a wall (well unless you do a lot of psychedelic drugs) but is the kind of shot I could imagine on the cover of a music mag. The technical aspects are also very well done, use of DOF is interesting, feels as tho it is reversed by having center image sharp and extremities not so. (curious if this is out of cam or PSed?) The color scheme enhances the feminity of the shot. Composition is also very well suited to the image. Very well done, I suspect it did not scream choas to lots of folks tho, hence the lowish score. Well done bob!

To head this little grouping of yourself, Gordon, David and I is a rare privilege. Great shot, or perhaps image, but I'm afraid it didn't speak of chaos to me ... but then, evidently, my own approach didn't apeak strongly of chaos to many either.

(Okay, Take 2) I definitely still and do like this shot but what does it to me is the smirk that you can just see on the model's face. It gives a very mischievous glow to the piece. Nice capture, good job.

The colors are appealing. The concept is different. I don't like how the effect is so obviously done. The difference between sharp and not sharp is too drastic,imo.

Terrific photo! Doesn't hit the challenge criteria nail on the head for me, but I like it very much. I'll give it an 8.

Beautiful but scary.. I like the colors and the eye in focus, could be on the cover of a scaryr movie...

Wondeful colors. Would have been a 10 for me if your model was off center...

Very striking, highly unusual and creative, merging of colours between pink and peach just right, and focus on eye in the centre pulls us in. Really great!

If wasn't there the smile but some anger or confusion I would have rated 10. It's the best by now (technically good picture + a chaotic taste vs messy, as the other entries, including mine) ... 8

This is a cool shot. Keeping the one eye sharper and just the look being given gives it a nice effect. I'm not sure how you did the photo and I can't say that it really says "chaos" too clearly to me. Still a pretty good score from me.

Perhaps the most creative attempt to photograph chaos. The final result is done so well it demands a high rating.

Too abstract for a portrait and too blurred for a chaos,3 !

WOW - I really like the effect of this. I would have preferred to have both eyes and the mouth in focus, but then this is your interpretation of chaos, not mine - so I give it a 9
