Another top 10! Well done!
Lovely separation with the DOF. Set up is nice with the clothes and snake etc. Next time use a more dangerous snake like a Gaboon adder or a Rhinoceros viper to add more drama... call me if you need them soon :-)

Incredible. It's not easy to win me over with cliches, but you did it.

Beautiful snake and good DOF. I would prefer a tighter crop, because I think the background landscape is distracting rather than enhancing. Also, the red in her robe seems a bit blown out -- one thing that makes this challenge so challenging.

I think the set-up and technique work perfectly together -- title is just right. I wish the moon wasn't there and I also think the brightness of her dress is overpowering but as you are working with red on red, I see that it works for separation purposes. Good score from me.

That snake just makes it that much more powerful. Good shot.

Oooh, excellent. This shot wouldn't have been nearly as great without the snake.
