Nice portrait, like the colours.
Good "impish" look

When I see a shot like this down at 61st (I thought it was top 10 for sure) makes me think I was very lucky to scrape 78th!
Nice to see you submitting again; it's been a while.

I can't believe you didn't beat me with this shot... It's really cool IMHO.

The shallow DOF is just right, and such a cheeky pose/composition. Well done..

Glad to see you back after so long. I thought I lost one of my favorite photographers!

Excellent self-portrait, very playful. The toning is perfect. Nicely done!

Bump for the freckles

Probably one of the best self-portraits I've seen so far. Nice composition, tones are perfect, and I love how the limited depth of field puts all but the bubble and left side of your face out of focus. It's a very cute concept, as well. Your eyes and expression convey the message very nicely, making the title believable.
Wonderful work.

This is great. I love the idea & title, and I love the wild crop at the top. It would be easy to underestimate this image because of the light-hearted approach, but it is also a really good photograph. You must know your model pretty well. 7.
Back for second opinion ... what was I thinking? This is better than 7. It's the most joie-de-vivre portrait in the challenge. Bump right up to 9.

I like the softeness. The tight crop above the eyes creates an intimate feeling.
02/18/2005 06:26:21 PM
Nicely focused on the gum and the left eye, think I would have prefered it not to be quite so tightly cropped at the top but stilll a great shot. 9
02/18/2005 05:28:07 PM
Funny and flattering portrait IMO.
I love the tones and the lights. I just wish your eyes had been a bit more in focus.
02/18/2005 03:27:28 AM
This one is just so cute :D I really like it, great composition and a beautiful model

Returning for comment: I like the pose, crop, and tones very much. Most everything works well here, except perhaps I think a little more DOF to catch both eyes sharp would have been nice. A very effective portrait, IMHO.

i don't know anything about portraiture, so i'm using your image to try to figure out what i think i would or wouldn't do in this situation, as well as what i notice and get out of your image.

how much fun you must have had doing this! as a moment, very well caught. the soft focus, though, is leaving me grasping for details. visually, i'm having a hard time reconciling the far right--i can't get a feel for just what your hair is doing. i think the lighting is also washing out the range of tonalities and character that might be found in your face. but, all the same, i like the essence of whimsy that you've captured. good luck!

Composition: 8, I like that some of your head is cropped out. I think neatly cropping to just include all of your head would only detract from the shot
Technical: 8, Love the DOF that softly blurs all but your face
Appeal: 8, Fun feeling shot
Challenge: 9, Transmits message of title quite well
Overall Calculated Average Score: 8

I love this! Great attitude in this shot. Love the look and the bubble gum. Nice soft treatment but I love the look in the eyes most. Oh, and yay for freckles!!!! :-)
02/15/2005 10:18:20 PM
This image is fun to watch and while a tad more sharpness is desired, the overall effect remains very strong because of the mischievious askance stare in conjunction with the bubble. Bumping up.
02/15/2005 01:34:46 PM
Love this. Do you have pig tails too? IF you do which I think you do It would have been nice to have seen them more. 9 anyways. cute shot.
You also look like an actress with red hair. cant think of her name right now but if I do I will come back.

OK im back...you look like Julianne Moore. Now I can rest. :P
02/15/2005 06:52:58 AM
I like the way your personality shows through!
02/15/2005 02:27:11 AM
Has the feel of a really candid capture
02/14/2005 03:48:55 PM
A good idea and a nice expression. There is something in the composition that bothers me.
