Congratulations on a ribbon in your first challenge!

Ack...I thought I was commenting on a third place shot. Oh well...still a very nice showing for your first challenge.

As far my favorite... GREAT !
06/15/2004 09:47:35 PM
great portrait. the only criticism may be that the expression is so great I'd rather see this shot in the sunlight.
06/15/2004 09:11:50 PM
I like this picture. but Im not sure if this can make it

This is quite possibly the best photo that I have seen on DPC in the 18 months or so that I have been here. The expression on her face, the lighting, composition, the choice of B/W...everything just falls perfectly into place on this shot. If I could give you higher than a 10 I truly would do so.
06/15/2004 10:17:46 AM
nice shot. doesn't embody waiting, but a very nice shot.
06/14/2004 08:54:43 PM
amazing picture.
06/14/2004 03:08:55 PM
what a great expression. Its a little stretch for 'waiting', but awesome photo!
06/14/2004 02:03:28 PM
Great picture! Perfect shutter speed to capture the raindrops' motion. Only, I don't feel like she is waiting for anything, but she seems to be kind of content in the rain. Still, it's more on the topic than so many I've seen so far.

A terrific shot. I gave it a seven only because I am picky about "meeting the challenge" I think the shot has to describe "waiting" not the title. Having said that it was one of my favorites. and I would have scored it higher for another challenge.
Good work

Great portrait! Good expression on her face, and the water drop lines are superb. Super job!
06/14/2004 12:23:51 AM
well. that's the winner, isn't it? fantastic!
06/13/2004 05:20:55 PM
My favorite for this challenge, great model, nice work capturing "wet". 10
06/12/2004 11:27:00 AM
Great portrait, but, she looks content in the rain. Why not save this for the open challenge, as it is much better as simply a good picture than something depicting waiting?

I love the expression on her face. The rain is excellent.

This is such a nice portrait! Good job!
06/10/2004 08:51:00 PM
What a cute little girl, and a wonderful photo. 10
06/10/2004 05:01:59 PM
I don't even care about the theme - this is an amazing shot. The water makes a very cool effect and the expression is absolutely perfect. Great job!!!
06/10/2004 10:17:43 AM
Very nice portrait. I like the motion blur on the water!
06/10/2004 07:36:17 AM
Wow, incredible shot, love the way you've caught the streaks of water. Seems completely shoehorned into this challenge though IMO.
06/09/2004 10:30:22 PM
looks more like she's waiting for you to stop taking pictures so she can finish playing in the sprinkler lol. nice shot. <8>

06/09/2004 06:34:20 PM
Great shot!
06/09/2004 02:02:27 PM
Great portrait.
06/09/2004 01:25:41 PM
Very cute shot. I love her expression/eyes. I don't really have the feeling of waiting, but like the shot.
06/09/2004 12:01:29 PM
Lovely portrait! Low exposition time gives the image a fantastic soft touch.
06/09/2004 11:37:14 AM
All I can say is Wow - perfect shot - the lack of color creates a mood of gloominess and rain to fit her expression.
06/09/2004 09:07:31 AM
Good composition, love the streaked rain and the expression on her face.
06/09/2004 06:50:11 AM
adorable and very cool photo 9
06/09/2004 02:52:32 AM
Beautiful photo. Not entirely challenge appropriate. In other words , when I look at the photo do I draw the inference of someone or something waiting.?
06/09/2004 01:04:25 AM
very cute
06/09/2004 12:01:49 AM
Excellent shot. Nice close up, framed very well. 8
