cool picture. the pose is good, and the unusual composition is refreshing. processing is very nice as well, resulting in a broad tonal range. the border seems unnecessary, and its color is distracting.

Love the photo... the lines of the stair, foot position and that extra added flower... however that border has to go... Good Luck..

Great image... perhaps a bit too much saturation for me... but well done... :)

Saturation is a bit too high, the skin tone seem too red. regards.

I think the fingers shouldn't be in t he photo ( not good to chop them off as you have done either, they need to be in or out.) The flower is pretty but isn't adding to the scene. i would have cropped the bottom half more and dropped the floor on the step for more drama.

I like the rustic-ness of the photo, the play of colors is very intriguing. Nice match with the flower and border. =)

over saturated? flesh tones look off.

Colors and posing on this shot are very well executed. Love it. 10. I hope you ribbon.

Very good color and arangement. The off-tilt of the pic adds to the casual nature of the portrait. Nicely done.

like it, wish you would have straightened it though, bit distracting at an angle to me

Hey Ms Harris
The border is awsome
the color matches perfect
the flower is cool but a bit distracting.
thanks for bein my muse

Really nice photo. Everything's in pretty good focus, the idea is original, and the colors are good. I think it woud've been better if the picture cuts off before the bottom of the stairs so that all you can see is the lady with the shoes and the stairs.

Nicely composed and use of colors. Only complaint would be the levelness.
09/01/2005 05:23:46 PM
looks to be an uncomfortable way to sit, nice focus and color though
09/01/2005 03:10:46 PM

The colors in this are so pleasing & easy to look at! So much care was taken with this image that I have to assume the tilted look is on purpose. However, it's the only thing that makes this image a little less comfortable to look at. Great image nonetheless. Congrats! 9

Love the colors!!! In this competition of shoe after shoe - yours is a stand out. IMO you'll have a ribbon. Great Job!!

Oh crap! I just love hibiscus flowers...good job
08/31/2005 12:29:19 PM

nice shot and great composition!

I'd remove the flower. It detracts from the down home look of the rolled up jeans. I like the angle of the steps - not being perfectly level works for this.

good composition, I like the slight slant of the steps, good luck
