Challenge: Habits (Basic Editing I)
Camera: Nikon Coolpix 5700
Location: Bradford Kitchen Studios
Date: May 16, 2004
Aperture: F6.4
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/4000
Galleries: Family, Humorous
Date Uploaded: May 16, 2004

This picture came as a surprise. I had taken several shots of my two daughters (Habits are from a show they do in their dance class), I yelled at them, how bout some tude and only one of the girls reacted. The result was this shot showing contrasting attitudes. I love this shot, I think it will do well, either way it will definetly, be hanging in my gallery :)

Shot! Hehe...now I can see why you had fun doing the 5 year later version!

I gave it a 6. If you would have dropped a few of those 1's and 2's you might have made top 3. Good picture.

Creative use of habits. The "nun" is a little young but playful.

Funny and great play on words.

The idea itself is a 10 -- the only problem is that I can't imagine this hanging in a gallery or a museum. The picture alone is cute, but without the context of the contest it is a bit empty. 7

One of my favorites in this challenge. Well done.

Exceptional composition! I think the faces are just perfect. The hands are just a little too soft or over processed for my taste, but the overall work is excellent. 10

The religious right might take you to task for this one, but I feel perfectly happy about giving this one my only 10!!!! Rock on!

oh man too funny.. great shot

The winner!!!!!!!!!!!!
This one really makes me smile. What a wonderful pair of models. Everything about this shot is great...framing, lightly soft focused, contrast, the "sisters", just EVERYTHING! It is so nice to see a 'raw' un-ps's photo. This is why I perfer the limited editing challenges...shows what can be achieved when one knows PHOTOGRAPHY rather than PS skills. A perfect 10 and my all time favorite. Hang this one like it is or remove the clothing blimishes. I would leave the beauty spots on the mischievious sister....adds to her charecter. Congrats, hope we're not disapointed.

My top pick for this one. Just perfect. As a newbie, I owuld love to know later how you achieved the perfect color, softness and clarity of the girls' skin.

At first I was offended by this pic but took my time and gave you the benefit of the doubt (it didn't take that long!). Then my brain kicked in. Pic is sharp, good composition and idea was outstanding.

Very original. I love the play on words! Great focus. Girl on the right actually looks angelic (did you do special makeup for the pic?) A+.

Cute kids. Very creative.

Beautiful job! The model on the left is so serene and peaceful while the one on the right is so intense. Wait - is this opposites? Just kidding. I just trudged through the entire bunch of submissions - and found your image to be the shining star of the bunch. While I'm not sure the model on the right has quite the right expresion for me, It's still the best of the lot and headed for ribbonland.

Brilliant concept, I think u could spend a bit more time on composition and lightning.

Is the bad habit referring to the plastic/rubber habit that those kids are wearing because those ARE bad habits!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/19/2004 01:53:18 PM
Not the type of habit that most would think of, but you get high marks from me, nicely done.

Just hillarious, and what absolutely fantastic models you have there, they both are acting their part to perfection! My favourite of the challenge: 10

Excellent variation on a theme. The thing which makes this workare the models, they compliment each other so well.

no skin is that perfect. I see some large amounts of editing on the face. Cool idea though!
