What an interesting idea, great concept under the transparency category. I like that you were brave and put yourself out there, I think that is awesome. The subject is great, I love the combining of two subject like a woman and science. The first thing that hits me from the image is your shirt. The texture draws away from the subject just a little bit, I would have preferred a basic t-shirt either white or black. Also there seems to be a little bit of a line above your head on the left side, some one commented on possible window sill in the shot. I really love the warming feeling in the background color, it almost looks like a perfect backdrop. I think you did a great job I would have scored you higher then what you received. Good job.

I would like it more with harder contrast +30 in PS.
I know that that would blow out some highlights but under the advanced editing rules you are allowe to correct for that with the history brush.

Your photo gives me a 1970's kind of feel. A shot that would have been in an Astronomy magazine. Good transparency, and creative.

This is quite a striking image, although I feel that it could do with a bit more contrast. Also, there seems to be quite a lot of haloing around the underside of the telescope.

Well, I'm not too sure I like the composition. The subject has too little interaction with the telescope. Why are the two in the same picture? and why is she transparent? the technicals are nice though.

this strikes me more as a reflection image than a transparent image...
i love the look of strength on your model's face.
