When I thought of this challenge I thought that everyone would do fruit or some sort of paint/splash/water balloon burst, so I wanted to be different.

I shot this of a female model all one single exposure shot through a prism. You can buy a similar prism here.

Thanks for all the nice comments and thank you ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', '/') + 1) . ' sidpixel for all the constructive criticism. This is my very first challenge entry. That being said, I don't feel I did THAT bad, but obviously looking to improve. I did not know dodge/burn was allowed it is unclear from the standard editing rules. I thought only global adjustments were allowed. Otherwise I would have retouched the face, cloned out the circle in the top left, and removed distractions from the top of the image.

I appreciate the critique and thanks for the good and bad-- cuz it's really the bad that makes us improve.

Thanks ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' asij for all the nice words. I wish it would have done better too, but for my first challenge, i'll take it.

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that contributes well to the challenge

Welcome to DPC! What a great way to start, I like your approach in your attempt to create an unusual and unique entry, the prism lighting works quite well in adding the ‘burst of colour’ the challenge is asking for. Inevitably the lighting is quite difficult and causing you some problem which on the whole you have handled well. The pose is unusual and quite effective with the emphasis clearly on her lovely face but the bright highlights on her forehead and temple would benefit from a little dodging to reduce their impact. The white light arrow is a little unfortunate in that it is pointing directly to her nose. The other lighting problem is the bright area above her in the background which together with the circle on the left are both a little distracting. The focus and DOF is good with nice separation from the foreground and background.

I’m sure I speak for many here, welcome John, we look forward to more from you soon...
