yeah. not like i have a studio or anything, but i don't know, nothing about lighting pops out at me, and...i guess i kind of get sick of seeing pretty girls making up for lack of creativity. Your other photos show you can come up with something much better.

i like the occasional figurative image; you have a very photogenic model; the shot is rich in detail and contrast, but i really wish you had not cropped of the head that tight on the top--the rich black hair on the head might have added a good frame. enjoyed reviewing this one.

too bad her head is cut off. Attractive shot/posing, but the head being cut off and the soft focus don't do much for me.

the lighting does not add dramatically to the picture

Would have liked the whole head in the frame, but a nice image.

Ummm, this makes me horny. Was that your intention?
10/24/2002 07:48:00 PM
Okay, shes hot, but are youi doing anything special with the light?
10/24/2002 07:55:00 AM
I would like to be able to see the top of her head.
10/23/2002 07:06:00 PM
Looks like to much light to me, but I'll give you an 8 beacuse she's sweet. I would've liked the shot a bit more if you wouldn't have cut off a part of her head.

the best photos of this challenge use the single light source to create a war between light and shadow. this lady's lovely, but sweet legs ain't always enough, three.

very nice cropping...... this will sell sweaters.

Good portrait; interesting pose, well cropped picture. I think you used some other (legal) gadgets to get such smooth light. 8 Journey

just beautiful, good job! i really like it because its simple and clear and sexy, and white is very difficult color to take pictures off , but how every you did a excellent job. and I would really like for you to take some pictures of my self.

would have been good for the seven deadly sins also, nice picture

Does sex have to be in every one no matter what the challenge is. You stretched for this one and lost points because of that on an otherwise decent photo. Get off the family web site and go to a porn site. Your photo ability might get a decent score then. Pure trash.

Very well executed. Nie model. Nice pose. Only one light source? Nice use of reflectors then. Nice framing. Missing that little something to make it stand out though. 8

I guess I like it better when people don't have their heads cut off.
10/21/2002 10:25:00 AM
Not sure I like the cropping.
10/21/2002 09:53:00 AM
Hate the crop, top of her head is gone. Love the girl, the colors, composition, pose, light....great!! Jusitne
10/21/2002 09:00:00 AM
very slightly blurred.. the lighting is pretty standard, if somewhat dark studio lighting.. the lighting was supposed to inspire me.. it doesn't here... not a bad shot.. its just there isn't any WOW factor.. also, any particular reason for cropping off the top of her head?
10/21/2002 03:40:00 AM
I think she should have left the sunglasses off in this photo. The refection off of them is annoying. I would have liked to see the model's eyes. Otherwise, it would have been a nice catalog photo.
10/21/2002 02:52:00 AM
Why do people even get up in the morning??? People like this dicust me so muchi want to hurl!
10/21/2002 12:32:00 AM
This is a good photo... I like the composition... the lighting is not as dramatic as the subject... I was hoping to see 'dramatic' lighting as indicated in the challenge description this week... - setzler
