Congrats on the Blue, Melvin! Your Mother sure is coming through with the ribbons for you ;O) Congrats to her as well - she's a great model!

I really didn't expect this. I'm so happy... And absolutely, no doubt, that mama would be as happy as I am when she arrives and sees this herself.

Thanks everyone..

Wow, Mom really pulls in the ribbons. She was a shoo-in for this challenge -- as were you, by extension. Congrats to you both!

Very nice shot...If I am not mistaken, this is the same subject from High Contrast III. Either way my highest rated vote. Good Luck.

I am able to recognize the model here. I hope many people would. But to me atleast that does not matter.

Good pose, nice compo, appropriate background and good details.

How are her eyes so blue? Reflection?

In any case, it's lovely.

Wonderful shot! Great composition and expression. Eyes seem oversaturated... is that natural?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Good image, the blue eyes are distracting. I think I like her better in b/w
