Going for the whole cheesy glamour ring flash thing. This is actually a REALLY cool 5 foot round home-made ring with a lot of spot lights. I am still surprised this thing runs without blowing the fuse..... and with 1/2 dozen 6 power strips on the back running thru a single chord, it's a fire waiting to happen :-)

Corrected for the colour cast from incandescent bulbs and some sat on the green/blue channels with a nice heavy vignette around the centre.

I like this one, so no doubt it will get whacked... Hoping for better then my usual 4.2-5.2 on this one though :-/

I'm with the others, no idea why this didn't score a lot better, I would have been super disappointed to get a 6 for this!

I'm betting it was the "rule of thirds" crowd, or perhaps people thought the ring in the eyes was down to processing rather than what sounds like a really interesting light setup!

I like the tone and the hipness of this shot. The colours work and the lighting is very well done (maybe a little flat) but still a strong effort

This should have scored MUCH higher! The colors you chose are awesome.

I like this shot a lot and would have given it a 9, really cute, spunky girl, and I love the green motif. Can't really think we it didn't score a lot higher except that the top part of the image doesn't add much to the composition, I would probably prefer the shot more focused on the girl with less space around. Doesn't look over-exposed to me but i know nothing of glamour shots

Cool shot Rob! How are things? Pretty girl but it seems a bit oo much light. perhaps an adjustment on the exposure. Congrats on the personal best!

Hmmm, I have sat here for 10 minutes trying to figure why this didn't score higher? The only thing i can think of might be the focal point isn't spot on the eyes? Anyways this is a very nice shot

The eye make up is brillant. The overall green feel here is spot on. Excellent job.

Interesting shot, make up contrasts with her hair and clothes, would love to see the same shot with curly hair and a prom dress

For some bizarre reason she really reminds me of Barbie . .

Nice lighting and colours.

Nice portrait. Like the catch lights in her eyes. Makeup and hair are wild too. 8

Nice image, I like the "wild look", it strikes me that her face is a bit over exposed.
