Jennifer's unmatched portrait gift strikes again :) I LOVED this in the challenge, and am so glad to see it with at least an honorable mention. Congratulations!

Now this is an arresting image, and surely beats the pants off some clumsily over-processed nonsense I could mention. Lovely.

Excellent portrait with good lighting. Good choice to only leave her face in focus. Otherwise the fur would have stolen to much from the main subject and it would have been an entirely different image.
I could have done without the shade on her left (viewer's right) cheeck and I guess if you had worked a little on her hair and/or fur you could have avoided it. Then again; it does aid to accentuate her cheek bone...

Stunning image
10/27/2009 03:28:14 PM
such a stunning picture, question...why is this considered to be RoT and not Centered? (stupid I know)..overall a beautiful picture
10/26/2009 04:01:45 PM
Not sure how much you can call this a soft focus image. Keeping that apart, this is an amazing portrait.
10/26/2009 12:22:19 PM
this one is one of the more obvious in terms of the use of the techniques--meaning, i can see your use of all of them right off the bat. that gets you a five from me automatically. however, you're getting a 9 from me because on top of the techniques being present, this image is just terrific. good job! wondeful light in her eyes!

Spectacular!!!.....my first 10!
10/26/2009 08:53:14 AM
Lovely photo, not really getting the rule of thirds or soft focus though.

Oh my! Her feathered cowl/hood almost looks like a painting. Really nice.
