This one should have placed higher. Top 2 in my opinion. Very well composed and good expression capture.

Never ceases to amaze me how a great photograph can get 4-ones and 4-twos.
This was (is) a well-composed and captured moment, and congrats on your top 10 finish Chris.

I love this picture.

But it looks more like a Zertec® ad than boredom.

I like this picture because of the sharpness of the image. It looks nice i also like the way the rain is falling in the background it looks good, and yuo can tell she is bored on this rainy day.

This is a nice image. I like the fact that it was done in black and white. Rain also makes people think of boredom. Nice work.

Simply the best shot in this challenge

Is that a Starbucks in her hand =) Nice contrast and use of greyscale. Looks a little over-exposed... I wish the top of the cup did not blend in so much with the background. But great idea.

good picture

Love it. One of my top picks this challenge. Great tonal range, just keeping the detail in the coat. Focus is perfect. The one distraction is the very bright area behind her. If there is detail in that area in the original I'd tone it down some (obviously difficult or impossible to do well in basic editing).

I like this shot-her eyes seem to be caught, drifting..I don't even know if she looks bored, but certainly think the shot fits..it stops me and makes me think about it..well done..compostition excellent..

she is definitely not bored, perhaps daydreaming. otherwise, a very nice photo: lighting, composition and all

Nice Image. She doesn't seem bored to me, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/24/2005 06:13:21 PM
Good portrait, although she doesn't really have a bored look on her face. More like she is in deep thought.

Nice lighting. I like the b&w and your comp. 8

Maybe bored is a hard emotion to capture, or maybe it is different for each person. This is a nice photo, good lighting and composition. If it were "Waiting", I'd give it a 7, for "Bored" I give it a 4.

Neat picture and very pretty girl
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/23/2005 02:27:15 PM
Very nice candid shot. You've managed to capture true boredom on her eyes. Another thing I like is it doesnt have a "staged" feel. She looks pretty natural, not posing bored to the camera. In the end, you have a very nice portarit and the b&w works perfectly here. Congratulations.
