Wonderful image, must say I didn't see the model as an adult - I thought it was a child.

Well done on your 'FIRST' ribbon, and I am sure it won't be your last.....

Congrats!

A very different take. I like the composition,lighting & colors. Very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2008 11:06:34 PM
The colors are vibrant and amazing. Good one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2008 08:55:20 PM
Fantastic! A little too much tone mapping for my taste, but I am sure many will like it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2008 06:44:25 PM
stunning photo! A definate 10 from me! Welldone!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/03/2008 10:00:23 AM
The greens appear to be just a bit too saturated for me. Otherwise a great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/01/2008 10:31:11 AM
I imagine in telling you that of course, your photo will certainly be the top winner, it is of no 'help' whatsoever. But, I'll tell you that anyway. I have nothing to offer but a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/31/2008 09:41:52 PM
Great concept, setting and composition and capture. Would have scored even better with me without the over the top processing- the image just didn't need that to get noticed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/31/2008 07:54:49 PM
wow, this would take a ribbon...love it alot ill make myself a postcard.
wonderfull colors,timing and composition.9!

I want to know if you did this with a plug-in or just clever PP.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/31/2008 12:47:06 PM
A really nice composition and beautiful original idea. The image is way to overprocessed though...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/31/2008 07:46:43 AM
I'm assuming this was HDR? Good idea to shoot this that way but the greens have come out way too bright. I'd also like to see more colour in the sky.

I like the shot a lot though. It conveys a very sad situation well. I particularly like the fact that the girl has her back to the camera, symbolising turning her back on her Dad.

damn...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/30/2008 08:24:50 PM
The post processing gives this a surreal quality.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/30/2008 03:58:54 PM
so cute...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/30/2008 03:50:15 PM
I little too much processing for my tastes. But good job communicating the sadness of the situation.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/30/2008 02:22:50 PM
My God this picture made my eyes watered, there is something about the tones, color and light in this picture that makes it great. For me, this is the best picture I've seen in this challenge. Good job! Loved it!!!

I kind of like the blurry feel to the landscape. I don't know why, but it seems more... fitting? .. I don't know how to describe it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/29/2008 04:32:41 PM
My favorite through many nice shots in this challenge!

I love the processing. Nicely composed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/28/2008 01:51:22 PM
Very cool. But I think you just hit that "overprocessed" point. Like, a single, um, processing unit, less would have made this amazing. Some weird lighting going on on her arms, and strange shadowy/halo-y things on the horizon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/28/2008 09:10:41 AM
Well done. Nice colours.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/28/2008 07:47:01 AM
I love the shot. I guess some people may find it a little 'over processed' looking so it's personal taste. Nice work!
