very nice color tones!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2009 04:25:35 PM
love the color you have created here, kinda vintage! great wide angle perspective, very sexy model and pose!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2009 01:34:39 PM
SO 1920's. Wonderful shot in terms of model, attitude, pose, and the silverish tone of the entire shot. I don't know if the wide angle helps or hurts this shot. Great work.

A great 30`s/40`s feel to this. The lighting is just right for that era also.
Great image, deserves to ribbon IMO.

Good luck.

05/25/2009 01:29:08 PM
Wow! I love the processing on this! While the pose is very emotive, I'm not sure if its the best fit for this model's face, though. HOWEVER, still very beautiful and well shot!

Has a great Hollywood golden era look about it...great lighting...would have worked well as a duotone...9

I don't know why but this model reminds me of Lady Gaga (the singer). Good picture.

This is just great by the way i love it. top 3 i'm thinking.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Good shot, the lighting is good, the processing is pretty good too, also the color mix. But you have done a four sided cut here which is a no-no, cutting off the fingernails is a bad move. I personally would have left all the fingers in and either the top or one of the sides, but not cropping all sides. But the quality is way above most of the other entries here so it will be way up the top of the results for sure.

I think she's a very beautiful model!! Not sure about the vignette but it conveys the challenge

Great photo. Love the old school feel. Gorgeous!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2009 04:29:36 PM
really interesting and well done portrait - such a unique effort from the coolness of the processing to the pose - nicely done
  Photographer found comment helpful.

One of my top 5, superb soft lighting and great clarity in the details. Has a lovely feel to the image and the subjects expression really helps that as well as the soft muted colours. fantastic.

has a very vintage feel- nice!

She was just right for this image. Lovely work, great tinting, focus..this just works!!!!

stylish
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2009 01:53:12 PM
Very classical feel to this. Nice job in post. Sexy enough but not over the top. Maybe a bit too dark around her eye (looks bruised almost). Overall, nicely done. Good luck.

Very 30's!

Great icy blues with just the right amount of shimmer and softness.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2009 02:46:42 AM
Wow, this has huge impact. An unusual model with a very 1920's feel to her, plus very painterly PP, suits her colouring and the pose. Well done, hope you do well!
