Last minute submission....the weather held out long enough for me to shoot for about 30 minutes.

[Nov. 6th, 2008 11:27:08 AM]

Half way through voting and I am sitting near a 7.0. WOW, pleased with that!!! I have recieved comments about how it is a bit dark in the front. I couldn't agree more. Darn basic editing. When I tried adjusting in shadows and highlights it just blew out the sky to much. I hope this holds up in the 7.0 range. I expect a drop as it gets closer to rollover.

Well I have been mistaken for ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' coley and I could not have had a greater compliment. The umbrella was actually a mistake. It was raining, so we brought the umbrella. I shot my daughters reflection without an umbrella, then looked at he LCD screen to see if I liked any of those images. My daughter had raised the umbrella while waiting, and I noticed her reflection. BAM...it looked so much better with the umbrella. So we shot a few more and I knew I had what I wanted. The title was made up by my husband. However, I would like to thank ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' coley for his support on this image. Your portfolio is amazing and I have enjoyed peeking at it a few times during this challenge.

Congrats on the Blue, Jen... you've got quite the "Blue" streak going on!
I also thought it was a Coley shot, but as he is also one of my fav photog's - that's definitely a compliment. Love the tones. Very surreal :O)

Very Coley...I'll let you guess at the score I gave. Here's a hint: the number does have a one in it but I never score below four.

Love it. Composition is perfect, and the dark, scary clouds offer a great mood.

LOVE the idea. Its a winner for sure. I think I would have liked it more if the bottom wasnt as dark. Dont get me wrong, it helps pull you into the mirror, which pops...still though, its a bit dark for me. Overall though, its one of my favs in the challenge.

11/05/2008 08:15:20 PM
Interesting. Great job framing the reflection. A little bit dark in the very front.
