EXCELLENT, the richness of the color.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/15/2005 11:40:48 AM
Strong image, nice clean styling...I like the symmetry (glad it's square) and simplicity of the shot. I'm curious how it would effect things if she were staring into the lens. I think I like the border but perhaps a little thinner. Black? Regardless, well done!
02/15/2005 08:15:07 AM
Masterpiece :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/14/2005 10:45:31 PM
The richnesss of the color and the fact that the model is only part of the photo makes this a great shot. Great use of lighting! Congrats!

Thanks to all of you for taking the time to comment on my picture. It is always fun to finish first when having spent some time in the setup and lighting. I took this shot in the beginning of the week so I had plenty of time deciding on the right crop, border and warmth. One of my favorite shots ever. The girl on the photo is Audur, my girlfriend. You will probably see plenty more of her in the future on this site :)

Thanks again for your great comments. I got some more close ups and variations. Perhaps I will post some of them here. Also got a shot of the setup.
02/14/2005 07:38:17 PM

Very, very proficient shot. Good light, nice design and good communication with model. Would work well in a fashion mag. Tops!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2005 11:43:30 PM
Nicely done. Very imaginative. Bumping to 10

02/13/2005 04:09:35 PM
interesting and well shot. Part of me would have like to see more of her but alas.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/13/2005 02:53:45 PM
Back for comment. I love this shot. 10

Exceptionally professionally executed. Do you do this for a living? If not, you should. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/12/2005 04:03:35 PM
Excellent, not sure if the top could be cropped a little more, still one of my top picks, good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/12/2005 12:44:44 PM
I like the use of negative space. Dont like the border.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/12/2005 12:33:41 PM
Brialliant. One of my top 3 picks for Ribbons. Superb colour. framing and and absolutely great idea. (makes a change from flowers) Have a 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/12/2005 08:41:34 AM
Excellent color and wonderful composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/12/2005 05:33:05 AM
Very interesting composition you have here. One of those shots that require a double and triple glance, and that's exactly what you want the viewer to be doing. Excellent work and really love the lighting, especially the nice glow around the model.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/12/2005 01:45:41 AM
I really like this. I like the negative space as well. Pretty model too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/11/2005 05:54:35 PM
Way cool - 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/11/2005 05:21:40 PM
This is simply outstanding. I think that what really makes this work is the difference between the ligting on the two sides of the face and body. It brings this unbalance in a balanced photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/11/2005 04:44:33 PM
Technically perfect -- beautiful color and light.

The meaning is probably going right over my left-brained head. I just find it a bit weird, but in a good way.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/11/2005 02:29:40 PM
nice lighting and facial expression
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/11/2005 09:05:34 AM
Returning for comment:
The lighting is wonderful, although the brighter area around the model makes the background a bit lighter then the tapes she's caught up in. I think I would like this one better, had the tapes have the same color as the background so they would blend into it.
Still a uniqe and interesting entry to the challenge. Bumping up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/10/2005 11:20:44 PM
This is very different!, In a way it has a very "modern" feel to it. Great use of negative space and color :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/10/2005 11:04:09 PM
This would be a 10 if she were more off center and a touch more light on the right side. Great idea!!!
02/10/2005 09:40:24 PM
Emanating from the pink. Great neat and well lit capture. 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/10/2005 07:45:41 PM
Beautiful shot, very effective use of "pink" color. Since it's not for a model, I presume, I think the mole on her should have been removed, since in this context it's distracting to the geometric flow. One of my top picks for the challenge, Good luck, bumping up!
02/09/2005 11:08:40 PM
Perfect color, focus, and lighting. Super job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/09/2005 05:58:53 PM
Very nice image....you've matched the ribbon (?) perfectly with your background. Can you please explain how you did your background? I like the gradient towards the center/bottom. This image really works well! Congratulations.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/09/2005 03:44:13 PM
Great image, I'm really enjoying the background lighting. The subjects blue eyes go well with the piece, and the falloff on her right gives a lot of depth. The only thing I could foresee changing would be a slight vertical crop. Great image overall.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/09/2005 11:53:56 AM

02/08/2005 11:12:49 PM
Awsome, lighting and tones perfect, placement of subject great, I like the square crop and negative space, and the board adds to the presentation. You got the total package here...My top pick.

02/08/2005 06:17:33 PM
Compsition: 10 I love the pink on pink but the tone of the skin seperates it all.
Creativity: 10 definetly original
Technical: 10 Sharp yet you have a outer glow around her. Nice
Appeal: 10 I'd frame it.
Overall: 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2005 05:16:43 PM
There are only a handful of DPCers even capable of pulling off a shot like this (and they're probably all among my favorites). Looks like Kiwiness' handiwork to me. Concept, lighting and composition are all top-notch. Early congrats on your ribbon! 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2005 05:06:03 PM
This is great, how did you every convince her to do this? I like the way you have the lighting set up, nice job

02/08/2005 05:04:42 PM

02/08/2005 04:35:46 PM
Quality work and sure to do well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2005 01:25:18 PM
I like this very much, the lighting is excellent, pinks are beautiful, I love all the empty space. My one nitpick is that for a picture like this to be "perfect", the space at both sides would need to be equal - to my eyes it looks like the left is bigger than the right side. [9]
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2005 11:01:41 AM
Very original idea for this challenge, and I can totally see this one ribboning. Excellent work.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2005 01:55:31 AM
nice and pleasantly weird idea. I find myself wishing I could see her nose- I'd rather see that than the mouth. Also might have been better without that bottom band touching the bottom of the frame. (7)
02/08/2005 01:04:25 AM
well, the anonymity is spoiled because I saw this posted elsewhere, but it is a really terrific portrait anyway! early congrats on the ribbon Arnit!

02/08/2005 12:51:09 AM
Strange, but good. :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/08/2005 12:17:14 AM
The shadow on the right adds drama to this shot, however, I think its just a tad too dark. Your idea is original and I like it.

I think this is a great photo, I will be very interested to see how it does.. a 10 from me.
I fear there are others on this site who will not give this a good score.
