Blue - woohoo! Thanks for the votes and comments.

I did manage to get the edgy look I wanted in this shot. I have to say though, the image doesn't do my model Sophie justice. Here is straight portrait of her from the same session:

Loving this new lens!

Awesome take on this challenge! Cant decide if the grain adds to the grungy look or not -- but will give you the benefit of the doubt! Killer pic -- well-deserved 7!

EDIT: on second pass, upped my vote from 7 to 8. Just love the edgy feel!

Easily the best shot in this challenge. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2011 06:50:36 PM
Wow! This shot is nice in the thumbnail and even better to size. It works together so well, the red lips - but not over saturated, the grain which adds a primal feel, the bump on the nose that takes the traditional beauty and makes it individual, and the deep straight hair falling over the eye in a "I'm me" attitude. Wow!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2011 02:30:03 PM
My pick for the blue ribbon, without a doubt. The only 10 I gave out in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2011 01:32:09 PM
Interesting take on the challenge. Normally I wouldn't see this as usable material for an add, but with all the recent vampire movies, it could work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2011 11:38:02 AM
My 2nd favorite of the challenge. Artistic and quite esoteric.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/02/2011 11:17:55 AM
In the age of vampire movies, this is a must see!
