lol at BradP ... thanks guys .. my mood just improved 110% ... my confidence that not having the best equipment doesn't mean you won't get a ribbon just diminished!

I was sweating bullets waiting for the challenge to end and crossing my fingers (and toes) ;)

I took the challenge description literally, and expected neon signs... I didn't expect to find a photo like this so striking, but I love it. Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

i dont like pink but i like good photos
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 05:39:48 PM
High quality, excellent work. The soft vs sharp just works and I really like the pink cast. If a parfum would be called "pink passion" and this photo was used in an add, I'd go and buy it. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/24/2004 01:35:09 PM

Stunningly beautiful shot - my favorite of this challenge. Great color and nice soft focus. I can't imagine what needed to be validated about it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/23/2004 04:33:38 PM
I don't think you could have hit on a less flattering angle for a face if you had been trying. And it appears you had an attractive model to work with.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2004 11:54:15 PM
Really cool softness, it works well. Pink isn't my favorite color but this is one of my top 3, 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/22/2004 08:56:35 PM
great photo! I love the color and how soft is appears. Good composition as well!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/21/2004 03:29:35 PM
Very sensual use of neon. Works beautifully. A fantastic balance of soft diffusion with crisp detail in the same image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/21/2004 12:41:36 PM

Good thinking,,
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2004 07:06:36 PM
This is quite nice and is a potential ribbon winner. The texture in the fake flowers is not really doing anything for me though and I wonder if a more silky flower (or real flowers for that matter) would have improved it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2004 12:13:29 PM
Anyone that would give this a low mark is an idiot or is. . .I don't know worried about their own photo. . . blind. . .This obviously a well composed, professional looking shot and I hate you for it ;-) just kidding - I am neon green with envy. The only thing I can say negatively - and I'm reaching here - is the angle tends to maybe accentuate the nose holes just a tad. Maybe if her head had been slightly turned (to our left)so the eye would still be included or tilted down slightly . . .just a thought. It's still a 10 damn it anyway ;-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2004 09:57:05 AM
i love this picture!! Two things though... 1) the border seems just a tad too thick. 2) real flowers would have been more soft/smooth. its okay to see the texture of the fabric, but it would be a little better without it. Great Job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2004 08:33:22 AM
wow ... very nice
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2004 01:07:36 AM
Lovely. Soft focus is perfect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/19/2004 12:47:26 AM
Very good shot! Love the color!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/18/2004 09:57:49 PM
You took the topic and re-worked it intosomething beautiful. I love the soft focus, and the sheer decadence of the pic reaches me. I canalmost feel soft hands fullof softer fabric against my face. and I'm a guy. by my own pic rating system, you should get a 12, but 10's the best I can do. I sure hope this pic ribbons.

This is really very nice, could be a Revlon ad for nailpolish or lipstick. Nice going.

Great difusion. It almost looks photoshoped. How did you get such detail and soft difusion at the same time?
