This is a HUGE stretch.. but I love this pic!!

Post challenge: WOW! I'm so happy to be in the top 10! This shot was taken in my bathroom, during my most recent shoot with Sarah. Sarah didn't know I was shooting her, which makes it all the more like a real movie scene. I tried to find a movie that would make sense, and because she looked like Liz, that wasn't extremely difficult. I've never actually seen the movie. : )

And a big thank you to Posthumous for my RED - it's an honor!!

Love it when everything lines up, don't you? Marvelous image. Very tender and intimate. Congrats on the placement and the bling.

this was my highest score (9) along with the DQ-ed Dark Knight. Excellent, natural shot evoking the spirit of movies from the golden era of 50's and 60's. JJ is right, the only thing which I would change is to re-crop it. There are very few movies shot in portrait format :)

congrats on your Top 10!

Lovely shot, Miss T I presume. I find the fingers, while crucial to the shot, are a little busy or prominent. Still, a great interpretation.

The facial expression seems perfect. I like the processing, especially the dark lower third, seems to enhance the top. lovely image.

Wrote a longer comment on this and now I've somehow lost it in looking back over my favourite entries before voting ends. You almost ended up with just a full stop for a comment! It's a very convincing 'classical' photograph in style, and very well done too. Beautiful. Thank you.

Nice angle. Have you tried to square crop it from the bottom?

I haven't seen the movie, but this does evoke the time. This is one of very, very few shots that actually seem like a movie still.

Ribbon. Looks like a genuine movie still... or maybe it is? I love the black colors, the strong white on her face and shoulder... and the mirror in the back completes the scene. 10 from me.
