My daughter and I sat in my bathroom floor for an hour fixing her hair!

this brought a smile as soon as I saw it. The composition isn't my favorite, but pretty creative

Great idea, great work on the hair. The lighting leaves much to be disired, though. That flash in the face...

ah, looking at the thumbnail, I thought she was standing up and had waxed hair - that would have been great. well, done on the set up.

Nice original idea. ...and cute model.

Fun idea! The background is a bit noisy though. A run through neat image or noise ninja will help reduce it. Also shooting at a lower ISO. Very creative though!

Very unique concept and excellent composition, but the lightning is a tad bit harsh & unflattering. Good work.

very good idea too bad for the huge amount of grain and bad choice of lighting. maybe u should have gone for a more centered composition too.

Best idea so far. Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/07/2005 04:41:38 PM
great idea and posing. Something is missing though, I think you could have played with lights more, to expose different areas in a more creative way. I love the hair formations.

weird...but ok

A creative take on the challenge, I like that. Nice lighting and a lovely subject, but the image is a bit flat. Bumping contrast a touch might help, but probably needed to add another, softer light source low and near her face. (That would also serve to remove the dark shadow beneath her face.) 8

I think this would have been a much stronger entry if you had shot just her hair at closer range and left her face out of it. From this distance you lose a lot of the texture and fine light reflection you get from hair.

Nice, no bugs, no flowers..=)

Such a cute idea! IMO this would have been so much nicer with better light...the light here seems a bit harsh and direct...too "flash"...some side lighting aimed mainly at the curls with just hints of the models face would have been fantastic. ..and though I am a huge fan of B & W I really think this would be nice in color against a darker background...regardless, this is still a really fun idea!

Seems somewhat over sharpened. Neat idea and beautiful model. One more comment: wish the background was of a lighter or darker depth to further accent the hair ringlets. Except for her, the tone is too grayish. Needs more contrast to really be effective (IMHO). BOL

Very creative! What a pretty model too :)

This is good, well thought out.

Wow - you spent some time arranging her hair! This is a neat idea that meets the challenge. There are a few spots on her face that are a bit hot - but I'm sure will look fine outside of the challenge with some editing. Neat idea. - 6 - JeB

I really like this photo. Stylish and fun. Good use of the angle also, something that i am not normally fond of but that I find works well in this photo ~8~
