FANTASTIC job on the processing and presentation. I love the skin tones & texture. Bathing Snow White is the perfect title. Congrats on the top 20 finish - I actually had this picked for top 10. Can't wait to see more of your work!

Great Job! I loved this shot and the whole dreamy/milky look to it :)

Fabulous work here. This was one of my 3 10s I gave out during voting.

Congrats on the top placing in a FS - very tough to do around here! With the gorgeous models you have and your skills with lighting and direction, you should continue to do very well here!

Very nice pose, lighting and makeup. But too much skin smoothing applied for my taste. Perhaps if done selectively to the skin only. Not to the lips or eyebrows.

Charming!

I like the light, I think the skin is a little too smooth, but it fits the feel you were going.

REALLY tough to find much of anything wrong with this... Gorgeous subject, editing, composition, tones, and lighting. Perfect catchlights. The focus seems just a "hair" on the soft side (but this is a soft portrait, I understand). I even like the almost plastic skin (I assume from NI or NN). I know it sounds like I don't like this, but it couldn't be further from the truth... I guess I'm trying to explain why I'm giving it a 9 instead of a 10. :-D

Beautiful model, bubbles in bottom right corner are distracting though

I love it. The softness is fantastic. 9

Awesome contrast between the bubbles and the (oh so smooth) skin tones. Perfect mix of light and shadows to add lots of depth. Great color on the lips and eyes. RAZOR SHARP!!! Very SEXY!! and a very good edit. Truly a keeper and a 10 from me. Best of luck. Scott

Beautiful portrait. Well done.

WoW... no one can have skin that perfect. Nice tight crop. I love the way the bubbles sort of blend into the model's cheek. Great shot.

CLASSIC BEAUTY and one of 'my favorites' for a RIBBON..........

Smoothing is a bit too obvious. Her skin has no texture. The "bathing" aspect is almost too small a part of the picture to be noticed. Beautiful eyes.

Simply stunning. 9

good lighting and colors, but a little too agressive smoothing, looks kind of fake- a person without skin?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/01/2008 04:52:57 PM
fantastic skin tone and bold contrast with lips and eyes. not mad about the shadow on her face tho 8

Her eyes are beautiful but it looks as though Neat Image was used a bit too heavily and her skin has too much a plastic feel for my taste. (I wish I had her eyebrows) :~)

simply stunning work

I personally find the soft-focus effect around her nose/mouth/cheeks a bit overdone, but nevertheless a really beautiful, great shot.

I love the eyes but the rest of the skin seems way overprocessed to me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Love the eyes! Seriously love it! On small distraction under her lip camera right! Maybe you should do something about that! :)
