The rules are the rules, but this is still an excellent image that captures the viewer's attention and fires the imagination.

Very well done!

Sorry to see you lost your ribbon, but I guess, rules are rules. I had a feeling this would happen with image for some reason. First entry a blue...sometimes it makes me wonder if the person read all the rules. Great image in any case
07/17/2010 01:46:36 AM
No worries - this was gorgeous and would have won without the texture. Rules are rules but just because it didn't meet certain criteria doesn't mean it diminishes how gorgeous it is. Can't wait to see more from you!

There's a forum thread about this shot, where you'll find a link to the photo's page on Flickr, where you'll see that it's titled "Librodized IV."

Interesting comments on this one. To me the face looks deformed, like too much liquify. Eyes too big, mouth too small. Everyone sees beauty differently.
Not meant to be a put down, just my take.
07/09/2010 10:28:48 PM
Congratulations! First entry and a blue ribbon!!! Those eyes are incredible, and the cloth and jewellery are the perfect accessories.
07/09/2010 03:14:24 PM
Yep, great job! Welcome to DPC.

Also, if you are in Taiwan any time, drop me a line! :)
07/09/2010 04:50:59 AM
Exquisite in EVERY sense of the term! Amazing work on the eyes! Congratulations! Most Deserving! :)

Congratulations for your first ribbon!
Are you Chinese? Welcome to DPC. : )

The framing that the sheer drape creates is brilliant! It's like a window to peer into ... This was my favorite of the challenge....so pleased (but not surprized) to see it do so well. BRAVO!!!!!

The stray hairs on her forehead and over the beads spoil this otherwise good photo.

Fabulous and breathtaking. Her eyes are outstanding!
07/07/2010 11:21:26 PM
07/07/2010 01:39:22 PM
beautiful shot- deserves a ribbon
07/06/2010 11:35:31 PM
This is a stunning portrait. I think the fabric and the jewelery really add to the photo, and the softness on the skin is perfect. I think the processing in the eyes is a bit much though. Still, one of the best in the FS.
07/06/2010 10:15:02 PM
Oustanding work....composition...high contrast...the tones...the bringing out of the eyes. Simply outstanding beautiful image. My only 10 in this challenge.
07/06/2010 02:03:12 PM
I love the porcellain feel to her skin....would have been even more impressive if the stray hair was cloned out....very good work!
07/06/2010 12:22:22 PM

Gorgeous portrait and nicely composed.
07/04/2010 08:17:48 PM
fantastic work - the eyes are crazy!
07/04/2010 02:42:01 PM
Gorgeous eyes - great shot

If this isn't ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' librodo, you've done a wonderful job emulating his style! 10.
07/04/2010 04:52:47 AM
beautiful composition and fantastic choice of color
07/03/2010 10:51:57 AM
Absolutely stunning! Definite favorite. Looks like Manny's work? Simply flawless...
07/03/2010 03:29:18 AM
wow, beauty captured superbly.
07/02/2010 01:55:11 PM
Very pretty photo. Her eyes are memorizing. Good colors and softness to the skin.
07/01/2010 04:32:54 PM
Not crazy about the overly-processed eyes, but a stunning image nonetheless. This should place quite well.
07/01/2010 03:51:55 PM
magic!! 9/10!
07/01/2010 03:33:12 PM
Like the composition, tones and use of veil... but the dodging on eyes could have been even more subtle... this looks a tad artificial for my tastes...
07/01/2010 01:59:32 PM
Amazing! Those eyes.....
07/01/2010 01:49:28 PM
love the texture
07/01/2010 12:59:04 PM
Beautiful light, composition and model. Librodo?
07/01/2010 10:29:30 AM
07/01/2010 09:59:23 AM
Hello Ribbon. Wow.
07/01/2010 08:36:03 AM
Amazing shot. Love her eyes. It's a very doll like photo. If I had to nit pick.. The area next to her face is distracting with all the different shade changes (I hope that makes sense). Still a really good shot.
07/01/2010 02:11:34 AM
absolutely amazing- the reflections in the eyes are - magical -- beautifully captured!
07/01/2010 12:38:59 AM
Siena will score well. Her eyes (maybe a SMIDGE overdone) are captivating the the surrounds work well with her. (not voting)
