I know I havent been active much at DPC lately. Life has become very busy. I found some time and desire to shoot for this challenge. Allowed me to play around with my lights in manual mode and get in some shots of one of my fave models wearing an old stand by. 430ex through a shoot through umbrella camera right and above (duh) fired by a 580exII on camera against black backdrop. Wish I had cleaned the hat prior.

I doubt that this will break a 6 but it will be friggin' awesome as a print on my wall.

Man my boy is growing up fast.

I really like the effect. I would've cropped more off the left and bottom, to emphasize the person looking into the distance.

I think this is one of your best portrait photos. And that's saying alot since you have so many phenomenal photos. The light is so dramatic and beautiful. Congratulations on jumping back in and showing up on the front page :)

It's a hard subject challenge and this reviewer is having just as hard of a time properly rating images in the challenge. The meet a creative lighting challenge, it is necessary to approach the subject matter in a unique fashion and this image accomplishes that nicely. The subtle tones and transition from light to dark is simply stunning demonstrating the proper use of lighting in a creative way that many others have failed to grasp. Sure to be a sure top ten image - it's spectacular, well controlled and very dramatic which if all was right in the world, would make it a ribbon winner.

Great shot, the sort of lighting I love using on portraits / portfolio images - love the negative space and the mystery caused by not seeing her eye.

Excellent. The digaonal line of the shadow/light is fantastic. Looks like an Amish child (although I know it's not). Brilliant.

Fabulous! This is mastery of lighting. I would have cropped just a bit of the negative space, but it is nicely balanced.
