Caitlin is my daughter-in-law's sister. Someone who I have dearly loved and have loved taking lots of pictures of her & her sister Megan over the years.

I hadn't entered a challenge in so long. I'm so honored to come back with such a strong showing in a portrait challenge. I think some of the most amazing portrait photographers in the world are here at DPchallenge!

Any image defined by elegant perfection clearly must have the name "' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' SandyP" indelibly inscribed in the signature line. With deepest envy, I wish I could take a portrait image this good. One of my goals really has been to learn how to do it! Inspiration abounds in your work, Sandy. Did this image get the green ribbon? Hmmmm...more deserving of one of the top three placements. ;-)

Great pose...great look on her face. Great lighting. I love how the contrast of the all black background and sheet hightlight her face.

Amazing

One of the best I have seen so far. If I had to offer some constructive criticism, it would be to not let the eyes fall in a horizontal or vertical line, even a little bit of an angle can make the image seem a little more dynamic.

Excellent job matching her skin tones to the background and sheet. By not going full black, that really brings everything together.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is lovely. One of the few in the challenge that have merit.
