WOW...with 125 votes, I am sitting at a 7.3. I was unsure if this would come across as chaos, but it seems like it has. I find the image a bit wicked, which I like. I wanted an image with a cold feel to it, which is why I instructed the stern stare. I was pleased with the final results, however a bit unsure if it would be chaotic enough. So far....so good.

Post Challenge:

Yeah...thanks so much for the votes and comments. The hair raising effect was created by using three fans which were placed underneath her. She had to lean back a bit to really get the hair blowing upwards.

Congrats, Jennifer, well done. I was going to give it a 7, but that cold stare really puts an edge to it that I like, hence an 8 from me.

Congratulations. Great shot. She looks like the evil child with supernatural powers out of some horror movie. I like the way the hair encircles one eye.

Thanks Dennis.....I actually love the idea that it looks like the Adams Family.....I might just do a entire series on that. Thanks, :O)

love the eyes, they really draw you in

Great clarity in the portrait and the hair certainly does add the chaotic aspect.

Campy wonderfulness.

This picture is almost hypnotic. I love how you have captured the movement of her hair.

Love this, she looks possessed. Dynamic photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/12/2010 07:37:57 PM
I like the menacing look on her face. This reminds me of the Omen or the Orphan.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/12/2010 04:14:14 PM
Great shot for this challenge. The staring eyes really make this photo, in my opinion.

That's pretty chaotic! Nice pic
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Although there is chaos in this image (and it's a great image, the piercing eyes are very striking), there is nothing chaotic about the subject so I'm forced to reduce my vote a bit. 7/10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/09/2010 01:36:00 AM
Great picture! Her hair is a definite chaotic mess. I really like this picture. Good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/07/2010 09:05:41 PM
Fun! I wonder how much hair spray this took!(or perhaps how big of a fan)I wish the model was smiling, but I could be wrong. The contrast between the crazy hair and the stern expression works.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/07/2010 04:06:31 PM
Great shot. The clear piercing eyes really make this work - impressive in basic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/07/2010 01:09:54 PM
And there she is again! Beautiful, as always. And you've come up with another ribbon winner. *sigh* HOW do you DO that!? :) 10
