Heida, what a really intriguing shot! Beatifully done and if more voters in here appreciated photographic art, this would have and should have ribboned! :)

But....top 10! Congrats on a fabulous piece of art!!!

Awesome effect. You don't see works like this very often. I really think you are on to something. It absolutely captures the essence of fire in the human form. Too hot to handle.

Love the effect on this, and actually thought it might be one of ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' kiwiness's but something was not quite Gary-ish. Nowwww I understand :)

The only thing that didn't feel quite right to me was the crop through the middle of the nipple. Just a weeee bit either way...

Wonderful effect. The tight crop is like a box just ready to explode.

Ohmy! I'm so surprised this didn't ribbon. It has such an exotic feel. Very unique and beautiful!

I commented on this during voting using my iphone but I had no way to post. Anyway, The pose, the crop, the prop, the color, the artistry of it - certainly worthy of a gallery or magazine cover. I love that you played with the movement of the camera - a good example of serendipity at work.

heida, I didn't vote in the challenge, but this would have definitely been my top pic. it is so different from the standard nude shot. I love the ethereal feel to this, and the feathers are a perfect touch. Congrats on a fantastic image!

  Photographer found comment helpful.

Crap! Awesome shot Heiða, much better than mine and I wish we could trade places! Like I said, my fave in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/02/2009 02:38:58 AM
Should have ribboned - this is beautiful and mesmerizing. This would command a very good price at any gallery. Hopefully you'll keep having fun enough to keep entering now and again! Good to see your work.

This is my favourite for the challenge. Love the lighting and pose and...well...everything. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This beauty is my absolute favourite of the whole challenge. What a wonderfully, sensitive image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/02/2009 12:42:19 AM
This was one of my faves in the Challenge, certainly the most creative. Cheers!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/02/2009 12:17:44 AM
I am beyond shocked that this amazing photo is not in the top three. Not only wonderfully photographed technically but the creativity of this photo places it in a category of pure brilliance.

This one stood out for me. With the blur and and lighting effect (I think it was the white balance that caused the lighting effect). So creative, had this picked for the front page. Great image!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

OMG...why on earth is this not the blue ribbon...you were robbed. This is my most favourite image on this whole site. Damnnn girl!

Incredible.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/30/2009 12:37:17 PM
how have you achived this?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/30/2009 07:44:40 AM
Wow! Reminds me of the artwork that commonly coincided with bands such as "Cradle of Filth"
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/29/2009 10:08:32 PM
Consumed indeed...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/29/2009 08:29:33 AM
Beautiful picture, but I think you cropped it too much on the top, right and bottom. It would look better without half the breast and left arm cropped, as well as showing all of the hands, especially the one holding the feathers. Same goes for the top of the head, since the red hair really adds to the picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/29/2009 01:01:04 AM
WOW, I'm going to hope this is top spot, definitely the strongest image thus far in this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/28/2009 08:57:41 PM
Too cool for words!9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/28/2009 07:25:18 PM
Stunning shot. I'd love to find out how this was done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/28/2009 05:36:38 PM
Awesome shot! Probably a bit too artsy for DPC to do well, but I hope I am wrong, at least I like it, this is my fave shot in the challenge and I want to see it on the front page for a week!

Gorgeous
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 11:20:30 PM
This is easily my second favorite in this challenge, if not for the chopped off head, and left side of your model, it might have been much more difficult to choose my overall favorite.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 09:04:26 PM
Very nice work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 07:13:24 PM
Spectacular. This is a clear winner for me. Hopefully the voters agree.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 03:46:38 PM
Beautiful composition and lovely fire effect. Done through camera shake or PS? Anyway, very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 12:13:58 PM
Love the hair!!!! I admit I'd probably have cropped it just below the navel though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 10:40:57 AM
I like the artful approach. The bi-color is great. Has an ethereal quality.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 09:15:30 AM
The winner in my opinion. I love the pose, especially the angle of the head, the softness and the colour, OK, I love everything.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 07:54:56 AM
dreamlike - very artful
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 07:46:42 AM
Absolutely stunning. A winner here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 04:08:34 AM
One of only two 10's I've given ... such a classy shot, not tacky, not a shot that relies on showing some skin ... it reminds me of dancing girls in the first half of the 1900's
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 12:59:59 AM
For me, I wish her fingers would've been cropped, giving the effect of birds falling rather than her holding the feathers. But having said that, wow, love the picture! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 12:52:31 AM
Very cool effect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/25/2009 12:38:21 AM
A nicely presented study of light and erotica. Not very deep, but such things seldom are. lighting might be just a tad harsh on the upper chest, detracting a little from the fire like tones.
