Has a definate overprocessed look to it. I'm not especially fond of the darkness/grain/oversharping. However, the composition and idea are very good. It's got a great mood.

Nice! I find the dress really interesting. I wonder where you got it and if it's a costume from a certain period or if it's a bridal gown etc etc.

Snilld. Annars var þessi svo mikið þinn stíll að ég hélt að þetta væri eftir einhvern annan. En fyndið að sjá ykkur þarna hlið við hlið í efstu tveimur sætunum.

Spurning hvenær allir íslendingar á DPC sameinast um að gera sitt besta og taka öll fyrstu 10 sætin ;)

Congratulations!!! I was one of the 50 to rate this 10. As one of your other comments mentioned, I also think of Wuthering Heights when I view this. It has a great mood and is very deserving of the recognition.

heida you are incredible
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/06/2005 08:26:20 AM
This looks familiar, the photo without a person would also get a high score. I think that the "person" would look more lost if it ware walking from the camera towards the mountains giving the feel of desperation flott mynd 10+
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/06/2005 01:47:12 AM
A definate winner! Looks Icelandish and sexy
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/05/2005 10:08:37 PM
Ver nice. The only thing that bothers me is I think it is just a little too dark. I know you were probably shooting for this but I think one notch lighter and it is perfect. Still a 9

08/04/2005 05:03:25 AM
Very nicely done. This is a haunting image. Stands out well. Perfect pose on the model, the way she is looking down, and the white dress is perfect for the shot. I'm left wanting to know the story behind this ghostly photo. Great job.

Could this be Heida?
I wonder.
Wonderful shot.
Just the right amount of exposure on you model before you removed her.
I love it
Good work
If this isn't Heida then it is a compliment.
If it is then, good job (as usual)

Good luck

If this isn't a Heida shot, someone has copied her style exactly.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/01/2005 06:56:42 AM
I like the darkness of this picture. However, I also like the colors. And the girl faded out adds a spooky feel to it. Well, in my opinion, that is. Would like to read how you did the faded part with her.
