The DPC members have elevated Heida to the enviable apex of favorites. Her talent is amazing and so are her stats. maintaining an overwhelming 6.4 aberage vote received. Ribbons upon ribbons and most attractive is the flow of her unique work which never fails to titillate the viewers. This another example of elastic tones represented in b/w. Congratulations again, your presence here is indeed an inspiration.

Jám til hamingju með þetta en eins og einhver þarna spurði, er þessi himinn bara gerður með Photoshop eða ertu að nota einhverja filtera framan á linsunni?

This is one that is perfect for B & W.
Into my favorites & one of the best 10 in the challenge IMO. ((10))

Flawless in my opinion - beautiful photograph.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/31/2005 02:11:05 AM
Great clouds and lighting. I'm curious how it would look with the figure over on the left 1/3 line and further down the beach.

01/30/2005 05:43:34 PM
Superb black and white treatment.

looks like one of yours Heida? Really nice 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2005 04:29:26 PM
Your choice of b/w makes this image look cooler, so the title is a bit undermined. But I don't really caremuch. The clarity and composition are very nice, and the tones just splendid. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/24/2005 05:43:28 AM
This looks...Icelandic. I also think it looks like it'll score high. Very well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/23/2005 10:43:40 PM
A beautiful composition and result. B&W was the right choice, as this image conveys a lot of emotion. Well done!!!

  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2005 08:41:54 PM
wow! what an excellent, excellent image. you have done a fantastic job here, one that no score on dpc will ever do justice. i hope this does well for you, and i hope that you have this hanging large somewhere prominent so that it can be appreciated! good luck with the challenge!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2005 12:57:55 PM
Extraordinary conversion to B/W (Heida level). Perhaps an overdone theme...'offcentred person being thoughtful in the face of nature'..but who can complain when it's as good as this?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2005 09:49:51 AM
Great tonal range!, love the mood, best of luck :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2005 07:18:02 PM
Lovely!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2005 06:17:30 PM
It probably looks great in colors. Why putting all this Blue in B&W?
I also wish we could have some space infront of her, as if to see where she is looking...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2005 02:21:12 PM
great contrasts and subject
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2005 01:40:28 PM
Simple, yet beautiful. Works well in B&W
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2005 03:46:59 AM
This is one of the best picture for this challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/21/2005 03:34:05 AM
If ever an image was made for black and white this was it! Stunning. I love how the dark tone of that beach contrasts with the ocean. The girl provides a nice compositional element, unlike some images of this type her inclusion doesn't appear forced at all. Well done. 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2005 05:24:13 PM
I love this picture. It creates a mood the minute you look at it. I love the look of the girl from behind, and the black and white is perfect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/20/2005 08:19:40 AM
Amazing... good balance of brightness and contrast. good luck!

Dreamlike image - very nicely composed and strongly displayed in B&W - 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2005 10:15:10 AM
Excellent composition and the contrast of light and dark tones has been utilised to the full to give impact to the image.
Nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2005 06:48:45 PM
Wonderful, wha to say thos os perfect, i really love the mood on this one.
Great position of the model, good use of the rule of thirds, good choice on the B&W. great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2005 05:24:18 PM
Lovely image. Somehow her pose could have been more relaxed BUT I love the picture anyway. Good tonal range (burning in works here).
Excellent composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2005 05:00:36 PM
Awesome B&W. Great capture of tones and textures. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2005 12:56:45 PM
Nice mood shot. Maybe heavy on the contrast. Good composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2005 10:54:47 AM
Excellent photo. Most would have placed her to the left so there was more of the frame off to the right in the direction she is looking but I don't think it hurts it too badly. I like the way the light and dark patches in her dress blend perfectly with those in the surf. I would love to have seen what an 8x10 view camera would have done to this photo. Nice job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2005 08:58:45 AM
wow , this is awsome . should be top ten
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2005 08:42:42 AM
Very good B&W. It is a very good photo (composition, light, tone etc), but the clouds almost draw the attention away from the girl. It is hard for the eye to find rest. I had already given it a 10 for all other aspects and I'm not going to change that. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2005 06:49:55 AM
Exceptional photo, should be a contender for a ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2005 05:02:46 AM
Great composition and atmosphere, I'm sure Seals & Crofts would agree.
