Camera: Minolta DiMAGE 7i
Location: My parents backyard on the grass.

My model is my favorite person, my daughter. She has great red hair and blue eyes, but I thought a complete chocolate would be best.

I donít understand why anybody would give this picture 1, 2 or three. Are you people blind? :(
Not only there is chocolate in the picture but the photograph is in the chocolate color, and it is well done!
I gave you eight.

great! nice color to complement the entire shot. 10

Great idea! Did you try one with the chocolate facing the other way, her holding it with her teeth? I'm guessing that might work even better.

Nice image with pleasant chocolate duotone, and mesmerizing eyes.
07/27/2004 08:25:58 PM
like the color, good composition, pose could be a bit better, crop bit tight at the bottom

This photo is very interesting! I really like it! Great work. I like the way you can see the kisses in the hair also. This should get a ribbon. Good luck!

Very nice picture and title...persuasive to say the least.
Love the use of tone.
07/27/2004 10:16:21 AM
Yum!!! A beautiful and wonderfully sensuous shot. A little more shoulder and a little less light around the chin and jaw. Nonetheless, a great shot!

I don't want a chocolate kiss but maybe the other kind would be nice! Great picture and very pretty model.
07/27/2004 01:44:44 AM
is that done in sepia tone? i like the hues
07/26/2004 08:11:46 PM
10. :) Perfect choice of color tone for this challenge.
07/26/2004 01:37:04 AM
Very original and perfect use of sepia.
07/25/2004 10:16:24 PM
yes please

Great portrait (expression is excellent) like the way the hair fills the frame. One of my ribbon picks this challenge - good luck

A beautiful model, beautiful pose. The only thimg I would have done different is the reduction of the eue highlight. Otherwise yoi have my 8 for a very arresting image. Note I voted earlier(first day) your image is being bimped from 5 to 8. Very good work and one of my favorites.

It never occured to me that it would be possible to take a portrait shot such as this, with a model, and still be able to maintain 'chocolate' as being the subject of focus. I think you've achieved this very well, though the models eyes almost win over. I like the colour and the lighting. The model's hair colour seems perfect for this photo. I'm neither a photography nor a 'technical' expert, who can make qualified criticisms, but I think the whole photo is really beautiful and I gave it a 9.

great job, 9

Excellent !

it is cute... This is the favorite picture until now.
07/21/2004 08:12:08 PM
Fabulous! Great color, combination on subjects, wonderful lighting. My only wish would be to have her against a flat dark ground - the texture of the grass competes with her hair. 9
07/21/2004 06:45:29 PM
bizzare feeling about this one... maybe it the duotone a5
07/21/2004 04:38:01 PM
What a striking image. I don't find it sensual but I do find it highly intriguing and very artistic. Very poetic somehow. I think because of the pale face maybe. That eye contact is compelling.
07/21/2004 02:45:43 PM
Beautiful portrait, not sure I quite like the colour. B & W would probably have been better. But I still llike the idea and the pose. 8

Exceptional model and great portrait. The placement of the chocolate kiss seems a bit unnatural so it's a bit bothersome. PERFECT focus on her beautiful eyes.
07/21/2004 03:05:55 AM
Yes please!
I like the toning you've chosen here, it comes over well. Had the eyes been a tad sharper this would have been a killer image. Also the small white line in the right eye distracts somewhat. Other than that, good work.
07/21/2004 02:22:09 AM
great job!!! would of gotten that piece of grass out of her hair though ( by her shoulder)
07/21/2004 01:58:39 AM
stunning hair!
07/21/2004 01:19:42 AM
Coloring is AWESSSOME!!!! Love the focus. Excellent. 10
07/21/2004 12:54:46 AM
this is simply wonderful, 10...
