I find it interesting that I can look at a photo of someone when they were younger and tell which person in a group is them, but I have no clue as to what their features will look like when they get older.

I like the image, but the lighting and contrast could be a bit better.

The lighting needs help.

love the idea! I think the lighting throws me off a bit. The top right is bright, while she is darker. The eye is drawn to the bright part of the picture, which in this case is not your subject. I think it would also be cool to give her the same pose as in the photograph in the picture?

Wonderful concept. I wish it were all a touch brighter on her face and the picture. As it is by eye is drawn to the upper left corner where it is more white, away from the subject(s). 7 for great concept and interesting subject.

Nice idea and you got a good expression on her face. Clean up the background and lighten up the highlights.

Love the contrasts in this - there is beauty in both Ages and her eyes still glitter and shine.

The contrast between the model and the photo tells a story. Nicely done.

Nice but I feel you could have done a better job of the B&W conversion - this one is very grey, or the lighting could be stronger.

I really like the comparison of the two shots. I wish the lighting had been a little better -- this has the potential of being a really great shot.
