GREAT highkey image :) I love it :) It's such a nice and wonderful composition. The crop is perfect. I don't think I would change a thing :)

I agree with eschelar... the picture is really gorgeous and should have been ranked MUCH higher. Should you be so inclined, I bet it will sell.

I saw this pic on the page just as I had to go to work and stop voting. I wish I had taken the time to give it just one more 9 or 10.

This picture is REALLY gorgeous.

I totally disagree with all the people who can't read titles or think for more than a few seconds to get the connection with branch. The main subject of the picture is definitely related to a branch. The title brings it together.

I definitely think there could be just a hair more contrast and I think there is a bit of noise or something on the right. Maybe it's just my LCD screen, but the pic looks better as I drop the brightnest and increase the contrast.

I think it is noteworthy that you got more tens than you got nines and you only got 10 less 10's than the winning photo.

Please keep works like this coming.

A good photo with almost no colors and contrast in it. Outstanding!

Really nice shot, i like the differant shades of whit, how you created contrast with one color. Good job!

You needed to include the stem for it to be relevant

Bit of a stretch on the term branch, but still a very nice image. Soft and silky feeling.

Best photo in the whole competition! I love roses!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Doesn't fit the challenge imo since there's no indication (apart from the title) that there's a branch involved in this shot at all. A subtle and beautiful shot otherwise.

Visit 1, Awesome. Would be a lovely wedding invitation and thank you.
Visit 2. I like it even more after viewin all the entries.

I really, really like your rose photo. Very nice. However, I feel like you are trying to shoehorn this into the challenge with your title? Don't worry, I'm not voting, just commenting this time around. ;^) By the way, did I mention I really like your rose photo? He-he.

this has real potential but I think you've washed it out way too much. I can see the effect you were after but you went overboard.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2005 08:29:09 AM
White on white is nice, but more contrast would be more effective. Great focus and composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/09/2005 05:17:57 AM
hmmm kind of a stretch -- you can tell because your title had to explain how it fit the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/08/2005 08:57:33 PM
not a branch
09/08/2005 08:24:57 PM
So delicate and smooth and silvery and soft. This should be on an ad for Dove or lotion company or something. Nice.

Very nice photo, but it seems like quite a reach for the subject of the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Here is the utra femme shot, just soft and gracefull. skirts the edge of halmarky, and I'm not sure how it responds to the challenge, but it is a very pretty shot.

kinda missed the point of the contest

This is a very pretty shot. One slight thing catches my eye and that is a dark spot in the upper left of the photo that looks out of place. I know it is the petal but it still is kind of bothersome. Otherwise exellent. 8

interesting subject, nice treatment.

love this shot - bet it took a lot of trial and error
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/07/2005 02:09:27 PM
I like the effect even though it is too washed out in the upper left corner. This doesn't say branch to me...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful white on white shot. I personally think it's a bit of a stretch for the "Branch" challenge, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. ;-) Great capture and beautiful presentation.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/07/2005 01:04:12 PM
does not do it for me, sorry, too washed out
09/07/2005 11:51:42 AM
Needs more contrast, everything melts together
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/07/2005 08:52:20 AM
I do like this photo, and would even consider buying a print! Having said that, I don't like the way it matches the description of the challenge. You may have already heard that, but for me Im still gonna rate it in the better half.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/07/2005 04:11:03 AM
Great pic but maybe little bit to bright,
09/07/2005 03:31:08 AM
