I knew I wanted to redo one of Christophe's since he is so well liked and respected around here....not to mention his creative mind and amazing talents! :)

I am guessing I will not be the only one redoing one of his!

Great work yet again. Congrats on the finish!

A Christophe image is tough image to duplicate but you pulled it off nicely.

Can't get much closer than this to the original. Maybe for Deja Vu V we see who's on the other end of that line?

hey samantha, really nice image with great lighting, the only 10 i gave out
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What can I say? This is fantastic Samantha. Thanks a lot for picking one of my photo, it's an honor! I remember that it was quite hard to obtain the right face expression: in order to help me in that regard, I was simulating conversations with an imaginary person, and shot many photos randomly: the best one was chosen afterwards. I am very curious about your method, since your position is so close to mine! Everything matches so well: arms, eyes, pen, face. Not mentioning the obvious: identical lighting and outfit, and a superb processing, better than mine at the time. Thanks again :-)

If I hadn't seen the tribute to Gyaban, I would've thought this was a Gyaban! Supberb!!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/11/2012 04:24:47 AM

Exceptionally well done! I suspect this will be a ribbon contender. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2012 09:04:03 AM
This would have been my second choice, but I chose another one... surely much better with a beautiful model/photographer :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2012 07:30:36 AM
Spot on. Excellent.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2012 05:28:19 AM
Excellent work, even more appealing than the original (at least for male viewers) only nitpick would be the color of background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2012 02:55:05 AM
Ambitious! ...and no doubt successful. See you on the front page! :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2012 12:38:53 AM
For sure, you've got a much interesting model. That alone will give at least 3 extra points... :)
A neat image, perfect lighting and her expression is priceless. Excellent job!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2012 12:14:40 AM
What, you couldn't dress up as a cavewoman and remake my own ribbon from that same challenge? I'm hurt. Well, this outfit is a lot sexier than a bearskin would likely be...
