Well shot, one of my top picks; I think it would have been better to have a square, CD like format though

Voted already. An exquisite entry with top notch photography. A very attractive model and a good title to boot.

Hope people aren't scoring you low because it's not in the traditional shape of an album cover. 10

Even though this appears to be more of a solo act and the image is not presented in album cover format, I think you did a very good job with both picture and title, although the lettering font could be changed, imo. I love how her red hair contrasts with the black. Technically a very good picture.

I would have liked a solid dark background and a square format but it is a decent enough portrait with excellent lighting. There is a faint green tinge in her skin tone that could be easily corrected.
Is she the woodland fairy? I usually take off points when someone gives away their entry in the forums. It's not fair to the other people that try to keep their entries anon. magnetic9999?

This would make a good solo album cover. I like how though the background is black, there is still separation between that and the subject's outfit. The facial expression is also a nice touch. Well done.

As professional a model shot as you can get, of an absolutely sensational model (she is georgeous - amazing eyes). Absolutely love it. 10

Excellent portrait with great lighting. The only thing that bothers me is the white areas behind her. Text is perfect and well placed.

She looks like she belongs on an album cover -- very nice

Beautiful model. Her pose and expression are perfect. Colors are great. Nicely done.

Great shot, but too rectangualar for an album cover
07/27/2004 10:54:05 AM
Really like this, was just looking through the shots just now, not actually voting but this grabbed my attention.

Your lighting is perfect! Natural light behind her brings out the details in the curve of her back and the hair at the back of her head. The lighting in the front is subtle enought to highlight everything that's essential for the shot on the front of her body.

This shot had a kind of cute look, but at the same time a devious feel to it. I like that her arm goes out of the frame, but you can just see her hand on her lower back, The dark neclace is also a good touch.

Well done! Full marks for this, added to favourites!

Love this shot. Fits the title very well. The colour of your model's hair, the black clothing lend to a very "cultish" feel.
Your model should be commended, good expression in her face.

Great shot. I wouldn't have had the white drape on the left personally, and kept it all a bit blacker, but still very nice.

spank!

You should have cropped this square like a real album cover....... it would have scored much, much better then.

Great job with the lighting. Nice detail even in the black outfit.
