I love her facial expression. It really should have placed I think. Good job!

Eve and the apple is a classic, well done dude should have been way up there!

Hi Kollin,

This was such an excellent composition, with the B & W tones so well done! Expected to see this is the top 5 myself, and was one of my favorites for this challenge!

Well Done!

Surprised this wasn't top ten. I didn't vote on Selective Desat, but I saw this shot and thought it had a certain 'sheen' of quality. I knew I recognised the quality and style but I failed to work out who it was!

Very nice work, as always. Again, think it should have come higher.

This was my #1 for the week. Should've at least finished in the top ten. Great photo.

Good idea and use of the desaturation. The model doesn't look very seductive, though, as the title is suggesting she is to be.
06/26/2004 02:22:33 AM
If you're going to reference Eve, she may as well be nude. Not that it's necessary for the picture, but maybe the title. Still a good job though.

Nice idea - the theme and apple are great. I'd like it better if your model was interacting with you more. Nice exposure and rendering.

cliche but it works. nice work.

This is reminisent of the photography of the early days of cinema..20s and 30s maybe. Your model has a great look and the apple is a fun touch of color. I like this a lot.

Love the title here - really makes the image ;)
06/21/2004 06:35:42 AM
Do you have a version where she is looking at the camera? I think it would have worked better. Good idea though.

Guess who's back .. back again. Mag is back ... tell a friend.

Very very fun shoot. Great choice fo desaturation.

Love it. Great lighting and the desaturation works well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/21/2004 01:33:13 AM
Very nice, but a lower saturation would have hit the spot.
06/21/2004 01:21:35 AM
I love this one...kind of a Dorothy-meets-Eve thing...cute! :o)

if your trying to do adam and eve, she should have been naked for this shot. nevertheless, its still very nice.
