I know!! She does has a madonna resemblance, this shoot I did however was very 80s madonna inspired and the model turned out to be a great look-a-like!! =)

Maybe if I had done a different crop it would've scored higher... thanks for the comment

Btw I dont know why I ended up doing such a tight crop. I guess I didn't want any distractions but here's the original:

I like this one but feel it would have had much more impact with just one cherry. Eliminating the clipped one and showing a little more of the fingers would have worked better in my opinion.

Lovely model and portrait, although I think the tightness of the crop detracts from it, especially the cherries. Also, some haloing around the stem, lips, and eyes, especially the corner of her right eye.

There is something about the clarity that makes me want this image to be softer. The lips stand out the most but seem done more than the rest of her make up.

Great idea, the crop is just a little tight for my liking but nice and sharp, and love how the red pops!

I wish the model was interacting with the cherries in a more interesting way. here, they just looked like they are arbitrarily pressed against her lips.

Creative idea and love the red lips, lighting, pose and her makeup. You met the challenge 100% just don't like the tight crop.

I like the pose and the cherries. The off-white bg takes away from the presentation. I'd like to see it all white or something a little bolder maybe. Still a nice job overall.

Well, the model certainly looks glamourous, but somehow the image isn't "all there" as a package. The focus and lighting are pretty good. I guess the thing that throws me off is how exactly are you trying to work the cherries into the "glam" image??? I see just the tips of her fingers and part of the left cherry is cut off; both of which is distracting from the glam concept. I'm thinking maybe you could have included more of her hand and all of the cherries. Also, the cherry is "just" against her lip. Maybe a more "seductive" (adding to the glam concept) way to incorporate the cherries (or maybe just one cherry would have been better) was to have the model pucker her lips against the cherry? The photo just seems to be missing something... But what do I know, its just my honest thoughts about the image...

Looking at it some more, I do like the way you posed the model to look off to her side. It gives the impression that the viewer was just "caught" looking at the subject; which is a nice technique.
