She is so beautiful, and this is a very fine image indeed, and on any other day, this would be ribbon worthy.

Elegant, yet still true to the challenge. Fun, yet very well processed and taken.

This was on of my favorites in the challenge, apart from Judi's.

Fun literal take on the term. Although...shouldn't she has a dress on? Good photo. 8.

I love everything except the bra - maybe if she were more in the box and you couldn't see the bottom of the bra it would look like a lacey wedding dress? Otherwise I think this is well-done and quite creative, and I love the writing on the box as I think it adds to the meaning of a person being in the box.

07/28/2008 10:35:36 PM
Why bra?

You'd better provide a URL where I can order this! (I already saw the other entry of the "item" that comes in a smaller box a few months later!)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/28/2008 01:12:06 PM
haha, awesome concept. Don't quite understand why she'd be in her bra, but Awesome nonetheless. Excellent execution nonetheless. 8

Looks like someone forgot to pack the dress on this one! :)

The only thing that annoys me with this shot is the darker shadow in the lower left. Otherwise well done!
